Arbi Ajwaini- side dish for chapati recipe
My post today is a recipe of arbi sabji from Nita mehta's cook book. Arbi is combined with the masala of onion rings and flavoured with carom seeds or ajwain.
- Pressure cook arbi with 3 cups of water and 2tsp salt to give one whistle. Keep on low flame for 4 minutes . Do not overboil. Peel and flatten each piece between the palms. Heat 2 cups of oil in a pan for frying.Put 4-5 pieces of flattened arbi at one time in oil and fry till golden brown. Remove from oil and keep aside. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in another pan. Add ajwain and jeera. Cook till jeera turns golden. Add onion and cook till soft . Add haldi and mix. Add tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes till soft . Add ginger and stir for sometime. Then add the chilli powder ,amchoor powder, salt and dhania powder. Stir to mix well and add 2-3tbspn water. Boil. Add fried arbi and mix well. Add hara dhania and green chillies .Stir fry for 2 minutes.
