Little did i realise that there was more to this tuber than met the eye. I visited a friend a while back for a casual lunch. Nothing exotic. Just comfort food, some old songs and aimless banter. And she had made this delicious taro root pulusu. I was awestruck at its simplicity. And delighted that there was one more way in which taro root can be enjoyed. This recipe is an authentic Andhra dish and does not call for any grinding. The tang from the tamarind and the sweet hints from the jaggery blend well to make your tongue sing for more. Its a feast on those days when you want a hot and spicy dinner with steamed rice and papads.
