? Happy Birthday ?
It should have been something to do with chocolate , as we all know Valli’s love for ,but I know Valli loves this roast too ! Right Valli ? This is a special post for a very special person , She is a friend who has created a beautiful family bond between our group , the BM group , we call it The BM Family where we share practically everything! Well she is our inspiration for cooking and trust me without her punch most us would not be blogging .
At present I am in Japan where it’s absolutely impossible to cook , click and blog , thank God for my very rich drafts where I had this Arvi Roast which is a recipe dictated by Valli ! Remember Valli ? I remember her telling me that this one is her favourite ! So wishing you a very very Happy Birthday Valli ! A very small way to express my love and wishes .
Coming to Arvi Roast !
Arvi is one of my favorite tubers too, of course next to Potato. I believe a roast is a must while serving the traditional Tamil Spread. I had never made a roast , we normally deep fry the Arvi or sometimes make it like Jeera Aaloo. This roast tasted awesome with all the spices . It was crunchy outside and soft inside.
Arvi Roast is a part of the Tamil Spread I made for The BM Buffet.
