Arvi Gosht

Arbi or arvi is known as taro root in English. It’s one dish that I have always loved – esp in winters. I still have the taste of my dadi and mama k hath ka salan which we always loved with lemon juice and lots of piyaz and tamatar! Sath mai tandor k roti! Hayeee

Here’s the recipe that I tried today and it turned out great as well! Kuch muhabbat ka ferk hai bus jo sirf baron k hath se he ata hai- baki all’s good! ❤️

Arvi Gosht

Mutton – 1 kg

Arvi- 1/2 kg

Onion- 1 large

Garlic cloves – 3-4

Salt – to taste

Yoghurt- 1/2 cup

Red chilli powder – 3/4 tbsp

Turmeric- 1tsp

Shan Paya Masala – 1-2 tbsps

Oil- 2-3 tbsl

Corriander and green chillies to garnish.


1. Slice onions and fry them in oil.- turn slight brown

2. Add mutton and mix well till the smell goes.

3 Add salt, red chillies, turmeric along with yoghurt.

4. Add water and let the meat get tender. I usually make it in pressure cooker so gets tender in 15 min.

5. After its nice and soft mix well and add arvi. Now initially I peeled off the arvi and soaked it in water with salt for an hour. I washed it well after that.

6. Mix it all nicely and add water – I like mine shorba sort so add accordingly. Let it simmer on low.

7. Add 1-2 tbsp of Shan Paya Masala- it’s my mother in law’s tip and I add it to all shorba sort curries that I’m making – alu gosht esp! The flavour i will give is just going to be amazing!

8. In the end- add chopped corriander and green chilies- simmer for 5 min and serve hot with lemon and piyaz tamatar! Tandor k roti ho to kya he bat!!
