How to Make Vrat Ki Arbi Ki Sabzi :

  1. Wash the arbi thoroughly and boil it for 2 whistles in cooker. Cook them just 75%. This is just enough to let the peel come off easily. Make sure you do not overdo it.
  2. When you touch the arbi it should feel stiff and not mushy. This is the most important step. If done properly you will get crispy exterior of the arbi discs.
  3. Keep the boiled arbi in chilled water for a minute, the peel will come off easily.
  4. Cut the arbi into even discs or roundels.
  5. Sprinkle all the dry masalas on the arbi and mix them with a light hand so as to not mash the arbi. Keep aside.
  6. Now add ghee / oil in a thick bottomed / nonstick kadai. Making this sabji in ghee takes this sabji all together to a different level.
  7. When the ghee heats up the oil , gslit green chillies and stir fry till it gets crisp.
  8. Then add the masala coated arbi pieces.
  9. At low flame gently toss over the pieces so that all the arbi pieces are coated with ghee.
  10. Let them roast till you see little crispness on outside.
