  • 500g Taro Root (Cham Dompa), whole

  • Salt, to taste

  • Red chili powder, to taste

  • Cold pressed sesame oil or coconut oil, for frying

  • Radish microgreens, for garnish


Step 1

Wash the whole Taro Roots (or potato) thoroughly under running water.

Step 2

Peel the Taro Roots and cut them into slices or cubes.

Step 3

Place the sliced or cubed Taro Roots in a pressure cooker.

Step 4

Add enough water to cover the Taro Roots and sprinkle some salt.

Step 5

Close the pressure cooker with its lid and cook on high heat until it reaches full pressure.

Step 6

Once the pressure cooker reaches full pressure, reduce the heat to low and cook for about 10-15 minutes.

Step 7

Turn off the heat and allow the pressure to release naturally.

Step 8

Open the pressure cooker carefully and drain the excess water from the boiled Taro Roots.

Step 9

In a bowl, season the boiled Taro Roots with salt and red chili powder according to your taste preferences. Toss well to coat evenly.

Step 10

Heat cold pressed sesame oil or coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

Step 11

Once the oil is hot, carefully add the seasoned Taro Roots to the pan in a single layer.

Step 12

Fry the Taro Roots until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides, flipping them occasionally. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

Step 13

Once fried to perfection, transfer the Taro Root slices or cubes to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off any excess oil.

Step 14

Arrange the fried Taro Root on a serving platter and garnish generously with fresh radish microgreens.

Serve the Boiled Taro Root Fry immediately as a crispy and delicious appetizer or side dish.
