It is similar to potato in shape and look, Arbi is a starchy root vegetable that has a brown-coloured fibrous exterior and a white, slightly slimy flesh inside. It carries a unique mix of a deep nutty and a mild sweet taste. The vegetable is usually turned into a savoury dish but it can also be used to create sweet dishes. Its soft, creamy flesh makes for a luscious meal. More than its great taste, Arbi should be included in the diet for its innumerable health benefits.
