Tips for making sukhi arbi recipe:
  1. While peeling the arbi, apply some oil to your fingers and peel.
  2. While frying the spice powders, do so at the lowest flame. If need be you can switch off the gas. The spice powders,especially chili powder tends to burn quickly on a high heat.
  3. The sukhi arbi can also be served as a snack or starter.
  4. If making for vrat or fast, then don't add asafoetida (hing).
