Arbi ki sabji is a delicious side dish prepared using arbi/colocasia roots (obviously). It has the bite of onions and tomatoes and is mildly spiced. It tastes great with paratha and yogurt on the side. Arbi is not a very popular veggie. My kids too never liked it much. But now they have started eating a few arbi preparations. This arbi recipe is simple and easy. And believe me, at times it is over before I serve the roti or paratha with it. The arbi ki sabzi can be served with any plain paratha or roti or with dal and rice. In order to know how to make arbi ki sabzi you can also watch the recipe video.
Colocasia Roots/ Arbi: Select fresh arbi. Always pick almost same sized arbi. Otherwise, the cooking time would vary and the arbi won’t get cooked properly.
Onion and tomato: Generally sukhi arbi ki sabji is prepared with powdered spices. I like to use onion and tomato too. It makes the arbi ki sabji very tempting.
Powdered Spices: These are the main flavoring agents. Coriander powder compliments the arbi ki sabzi very well. I have not to use carom seeds (ajwain). These are generally used in the arbi recipe as it helps in the digestion. If you like its flavor, do add it.
Serve it with methi paratha and yogurt for weekday lunch.
