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 Arbi recipe or add it to yogurt & make a mild Vrat ki dahi arbi or even make a spicy dahi wali 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.
