arbi cutlet recipe, how to make arbi cutlet for navratri vrat or fast

arbi cutlet recipe – arbi or colocasia is one root vegetable that i make often and we don’t even get bored or tired of it. you can make it crispy fried or add it to yogurt & make a mild arbi yogurt curry or even make a spicy arbi curry. i even have a no onion no garlic arbi masala for the vrat/fast.

this is now an easy and healthy version of arbi cutlet. i have pan fried the arbi with less oil and then added all my favorite spice powders to it. drizzled some lemon juice and we had a crispy, tangy and mildly spiced arbi.

the arbi cutlet can also be served as a starter and can be snacked at any time. i served the arbi with coriander chutney.

since this is a navratri fasting/vrat recipe, i have used rock salt. but when not making for fast, then you can add black salt or regular salt.
