Arvi Sabzi Satvik Style (colocasia Cooked In Satvik Style)

A friend of mine whose mother hails from Uttar Pradesh often cooked red kidney beans, brinjal and potato curry and this colocasia curry in the satvik style. Satvik tradition omits onion and garlic which makes this curry quite different. For us who use lots of garlic and onion on a daily basis to omit these flavours from our curry seems tough. But I think skipping these flavours brings one closer to the real flavour of this curry. It makes one pause and understand the actual flavour of each vegetable. Of the three curries my friend taught me, this is the most common one I make all the time. Hope some of you would try the satvik style.
