Fried garadu recipe indore style
Garadu is a root from yam / potato family found largely in central India. Fried garadu recipe indore style is known to most of Indori’s and a topic to discuss for non-Indori’s. Primarily a seasonal dish…. sensational… especially when and as it is served hot with garadu masala. The dish is a real treat.
Garadu is also known as Cassava or Mogo (in Africa) but the way it’s spiced up in Indore style is out of the world. Winters in Indore are synonymous with hot and crispy garadus and with the winter gradually setting in, foodies can be seen huddling at Indore Sarafa.
“Eating deep-fried garadus is the best way to protect oneself from the winter chill”
All my family members are extremely fond of garadus and every year on New Year bash, we have garadus as a fixed item in the menu. Also, we often used to organize ‘garadu parties’ in winter.
Garadu is also advantageous for health. However, if eaten in warm weather, it causes irritation in the throat. So, it is advisable to eat it only when the temperatures fall below 10 – 12 degrees.

- When oil is heated properly, fry the gradu pieces turning occasionally, until all sides are golden brown in colour on low - medium flame.
