Arbi Humman (Manglorean Dish)

This dish is one of my favourites. It is traditionally made with potatoes but Arbi tastes even better. The Asafoetida water and coconut oil make this dish just awesome!
Arbi is a root vegetable. You can find nice information on it here

1 lb Arbi
1 cup grated fresh coconut
1/2 tsp tamarind paste
8 Red Chillies(preferably bedgi)
1/2 tsp Asafoetida(Hing)
1 tbsp Coconut Oil

Boil Arbi in cooker only for 1 whistle.
Peel Arbi and cut it into round thick slices.
Grind coconut, tamarind and chillies with water to a smooth paste
Boil the ground mixture with salt to taste and 1 cup water.
Dissove the Asafoetida in some water.
Add the cut Arbi and Asafoetida water and let simmer for some more time.
Just before taking off from stove add the coconut oil.
Very yummy with hot steamed rice.
