Colocasia fry- snack or side dish

Arbi / Colocasia fry

2 cups raw arbi / colocasia
4 tbsp rice flour, 1 tbsp semolina and 1 tbsp gram flour
1 tsp red chilli powder (I skipped this)
1 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Oil to cook

Wash and pressure cook the arbi, but avoid overcooking it otherwise it gets really slimy.
Let them cool. Peel and cut into small pieces.
Once cooled, peel and cut into small, bite-sized pieces that are of the same size more or less. This is so that when you fry the stuff, it gets cooked uniformly.
Add all the dry ingredients to it and mix well so that the arbi pieces are well coated. 
Now there are 2 ways- you can deep fry this dish, or you can use a nonstick pan and use lesser oil to cook it.
I used the latter. 
Heat the pan, spread 1 tbsp oil. Fry a few pieces on the pan until brown. Turn and brown on the other side. 

The semolina adds a tasty crunch to this dish. You can snack on it or you can serve it as a side dish.
