How to make Arbi fry

  1. Wash the Arbi properly under running water.Take a pressure cooker and put washed arbi alongwith water and take 2 whistles.
  2. When pressure releases transfer to a sieve so that all water drains out.
  3. Peel the arbi and keep a broad pan to heat on gas.
  4. Put 3 tbsp oil in the pan and add some Arbi to it when oil becomes hot.
  5. Shallow fry on medium heat till these turn golden brown from all sides.
  6. Fry all the arbi similarly and take in a plate.Press each arbi with a broad based bowl gently to flatten it.
  7. Now put carom seeds and chopped garlic in the oil.
  8. Put all flattened arbi in this.
  9. Make a spice mix with all the spices.
  10. Sprinkle this spice mix all over the arbis.
  11. Toss lightly such that the arbis are covered well with spices.Cover and keep for a minute.
  12. Give a toss lightly again and delicious arbi fry is ready to serve with phulkas or kadhi chawal.

My Tip:

If your arbis are small in size take only 1 whistle.
