Sukhi Arbi Recipe: How To Make Arbi Ki Sukhi Sabzi

Sukhi arbi is a traditional Indian curry that is mainly prepared during festivals and vrats. Also known as seppankizhangu curry in the South, this side dish is prepared by boiling the arbi and dry roasting it with a whole load of spices.

The sukhi arbi ki sabzi is similar to a dry potato roast, the main difference being the texture. The arbi texture is a little more mushy than the potato when cooked. The benefit of arbi is that it is rich in its dietary fibre.

The dry arbi sabzi goes well with poori, roti or is also an accompaniment for dal or sambar rice. The arbi can be made by simply dry roasting it; however, when boiled and cooked, it tastes better. The arbi must be cooked thoroughly, if not, it might cause itchiness in the throat.

The masala arbi is an easy recipe and is quick to make, as it uses simple ingredients. If you are keen on trying this recipe at home, watch the video and follow the step-by-step procedure with images on how to make the sukhi arbi recipe.
