This no-onion no-garlic Arbi Masala can also be enjoyed on vrat days during Indian fasting. Arbi is one of the vegetables that people eat during Navratri, Ekadashi, Shivratri fasting and this easy Arbi ki sabji is one of their favorites.

I make a few different recipes with this healthy vegetable, unfortunately, I have not shared any. Will share soon one by one. 

Recipe process of Farali Arbi ki sukhi sabji

As said, today’s recipe is very simple. It is made similar to aloo sabji. So all we do is a tempering of cumin seeds, mustard seeds, curry leaves, and green chili in oil. To this, we add boiled and chopped arbi. 

Turmeric powder and red chili powder are added and it is cooked until the masala is coated evenly. I like to cook it a bit longer on a slow stove so that the masala gets cooked a bit more and is slightly brown. This gives it a crunchy texture and it tastes good. 

Lastly, add fresh chopped coriander to enhance the flavor. That’s it, you are done. Enjoy it with roti or puris as a side.

PS – One can skip turmeric or red chili powder if you do not use it during vrat or your fasting days.
