Arbi Sabzi

Today I am sharing this recipe of Arbi Sabzi from my kitchen.Arbi is also known as arvi/ghuyian/pindalu/colocasia.It is basically a root veggie which has big green heart shaped leaves.The green leaves are commonly used for making patra(a savory roll).

Arbi 250 gm
Carom Seeds/Ajwain 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Turmeric pw 1/4 tsp
Dry Mango pw/amchoor 1/4 tsp
Red Chili pw 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala 1/4 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp

1. Wash and boil arbi in plain water or pressure cooker till almost done(don't overcook).
2. Let them cool and then peel off the skin.Cut in equal size pieces.
3. Heat oil in a pan/kadhayi and add ajwain seeds,asafoetida in it.Let the seeds crackle then add all the spices,salt.
4. Add arbi pieces in it and toss them gently so that the spices will coat the arbi evenly.
5. Let it fry for 5-10 minutes till it become crispy.
6. Serve as a side dish with your meal.

Note: If you don't like it totally dry add a little water and then cook it.The arbi itself will thicken up the gravy.
