Even though Arbi is one of my favourite vegetables, I rarely buy it because at home nobody relishes it as much. After a very long time decided to buy it and made this easy kalvan (gravy) that goes well with rice.

This is what you’ll need

Arbi: 200gms

Dahi (yoghurt): 1 cup

Cumin seeds: 1tsp

Chilli powder: 1tsp

Turmeric powder: 1/4tsp

Dhania jeera powder: 1tsp

Hing: 1/2tsp

Amchur (dry mango powder): 1/2tsp

Oil: 1tsp

Rock salt: As required (or use regular salt)

Coriander leaves: To garnish

Let’s get cooking

1. Pressure cook the arbi for 2 whistles. Peel, cut into roundels and keep aside.

2. Whisk the dahi along with a glass of water and keep aside.

3. Heat the oil in a pan and season with cumin seeds and hing.

4. Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, dhania jeera powder and amchur. Mix for 30 seconds.

5. Toss in the arbi and stir fry till the powders coat it well.

6. Gradually add the whisked dahi stirring continously, taking care that it does not curdle. Bring the mixture to a boil.

7. Add the rock salt and chopped coriander leaves.

8. Serve hot with steamed rice.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes
