How to prepare for Arbi ki Sabji –
It is very important to cut the arbi the right way.
Wash and clean arbi thoroughly.
I prefer to par boil as it makes the cooking easier. Pressure cook the arbi for 1 whistle. Peel and set aside.
Keep all the suggested spices ready.
How to make Arbi ki Sabji at Home –
Once the arbi is cooled down peel it. Make sure it is not overcooked. We just need to pressure cook so that it is easily peeled.
Cut arbi into fingers. Heat oil in a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet. Add cumin seeds, sesame seeds and carom seeds and cook well. Next add green chilli and ginger and cook for a min.
Next add boiled and cut arbi and let it cook on a low flame in a covered pan. Uncover, add in all the spices and give a good mix.
Cook on a low flame till nicely brown and crisp. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Things to keep in mind while making Arbi –
1. Arbi turns a lot slimy if we pressure cook it for a long time. Make sure to cook only to ease the peeling.
2. If peeling directly (without boiling), grease your hands with oil, it helps to reduce the itching, if any.
3. Cook on a low flame in a broad pan till crisp.
4. Adjust the spices as per taste, carom seeds add a nice flavour and helps in digestion, the otherwise difficult to digest vegetable.
5. Keep stirring for even cooking.
6. You can replace the amchur powder with lime juice. But make sure to add it at the end.
