I had recently made some Mango pickles which got over so fast but I had some leftover spicy pickle brine and decided to use it to make some Taro root curry for lunch. You can also make this curry from scratch using some archari masala. I have already shared the recipe for Archari masala which you can check by Clicking here.
Pickle spices added in any dish enhances the flavors and aroma. Taro root or arbi is not one of the popular vegetables but I love it especially if it spicy. I love spicy curries and love to try out different blend of spices in my daily cooking. So, sharing a pickled curry today and hope you all try it out and share the feedback with me.
