Dry Arvi

Due to failure of internet i did not post early . all phones and internet was dead. i feel that without internet our daily work is stopped .we become so used to these services without them feel somthing missing.
This dish i prepared carefully as some time it never comes out i saw my daughter used corn flour which make the arvi crispy and not stick to another this is really very useful and now i make it oftenly bec it is easy to make. i make it in two types witout onion only used dry masala with onion ginger garlic.  here i make dry without onion.its taste is good u can try it

Arabi: 1/2 kg
Cornflour: 2 tbsp
Green chilies: 2-3
Coriander powder: 1 tbsp
Red chilli powder: 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp
Garam masala: 1/2 tsp
dry mango powder-1/2 tsp
Cooking oil: 4 tbsp
Salt: To taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Boil arbi in pressure cooker for only 2 whistles. Peel the skin after it cools down.
Now press arbi one by one in the palm using a cloth.
Coat arbi with cornflour.
Take 2 tbsp oil in non stick flat pan and shallow fry on slow fire till it becomes crisp.
Pour oil in a cooking pan and . Add coriander powder, turmeric powder,  and chilli powder and fry till it leaves oil.
Now add arabi with 1/2 cup water to mix it with masala and add salt. Add dry mango powder.
Add garam masala and mix.
Garnish with coriander and serve with hot chapatis or parathas or naan.


1. Mix coriander powder, turmeric powder and chilli powder in a small quantity of water 5 minutes before adding to the pan. This leaves fresh masala taste and does not get burned.
