During the religious fasting or upvas, tuber vegetables like potato, sweet potato, yam are allowed. This arbi is also one of them.

Arbi vegetable is not our favorite, but because of its many health benefits I make it occasionally. Specially during the fasting period, I must make a dish using this vegetable.

In my childhood life, I have eaten arbi very rarely. My roommates introduced the tasty ways to eat this and since then I have been buying and cooking with this.

Other recipes using arbi are arbi chipssukhi arbi sabzi and arbi tikki. (Will share in future.)
