  • Arbi - 1kg
  • Poha (beaten rice) - 1 cup
  • Red Chilli - 4-5
  • Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Haldi powder - 1/2 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Oil - less than 1 cup
  • How to Make Crispy Arbi Sabzi:

    1. In a mixer, dry-grind the poha, red chillies, hing powder, haldi powder, and salt into a coarse mixture (like suji).
    2. Wash the arbi thoroughly.
    3. Pressure-cook the arbi with 2 cups of water to make the vegetable just a little soft. Turn off the heat as soon as steam builds up in the cooker.
    4. Cool the arbi in cold water and peel.
    5. Cut to 1/2 inch round pieces.
    6. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When the seeds splutter, add the arbi and the poha-chilli masala.
    7. Shallow-roast in simmering heat until crisp (do not cover the pan).
