Different types of stir fries we are usually making in our houses and it became a part of our life. It would be vegetarian and non-vegetarian stir fries based on our taste and preferences. We need not to add more ingredients to make this dish so it can prepare within a few minutes but taste will be really good. If we take the example of vegetarian stir fries we are mainly using cabbage, beetroot, carrot, potato and long beans to make stir fry. But today I am sharing another one stir fry which is entirely different from others. I made this stir fry by using this Colocasia stem which is also known as Taro Stem. Taro stem is having a lot of vitamin C and iron so it will be helpful to increase immunity power and destroy cancer cells from the human body. This stem is full of water and it can see when we cut it as pieces. Taro stem is thick, soft and lengthy and its outer portion will be in green colour and inside is white colour with so many small holes like strainer. This stem is available in rainy season and it has been using a long years ago. This was one of the important vegetable for healthy body for old people. It is very useful to reduce anemia. We can make different tasty dishes by using this taro stem. Taro stem stir fry is very tasty and healthy dish. It is traditional dish which can make very easy with limited ingredients and time. It has the taste of bird's eye chilli and curry leaves. I followed old method which my grandmother was using and it is a special recipe of her. Now a day its popularity is decreasing and nobody is aware about these types of dishes. So try to make it for healthy body.
