Cheppankizhangu Cutlet, Arbi Cutlet Recipe. Cutlet using Cheppankizhangu – Cheppankizhangu is also called as Taro root or Colocassia. This is a fantastic snack perfect for evening with tea. I even serve it as a first course for dinner. Here is how to do Cheppankizhangu Cutlet.

Note: If this vegetable is not fully cooked, it can cause intense discomfort in the throat. So that’s the word of caution.

Soak the Cheppankizhangu / Arbi in water for 10 minutes and wash them thoroughly to get rid of sand. Cook the Cheppankizhangu / Arbi in lots of water (4-5 cups) in a pressure cooker for exactly 3 whistles. Remove from heat and wait for the pressure in the cooker to release naturally. Drain the water. Peel the skin of Cheppankizhangu / Arbi. The skin should peel off easily. It might be slightly slimy. Note that the veggie is now fully cooked and soft.

Mash the Arbi with hand. The veggie will be slimy. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Its a very sticky mixture. The besan (chickpea flour) will help in binding the mixture. Arbi is a very bland veggie. Add a good amount of green chillies to up the flavor. The onions and the greens gives a nice bite to the cutlet.
