  5. Cover the bowl and keep for 2- 3 hours for marination.
  6. Put it in the fridge, as it will become very sour outside.
  7. After 2 - 3 hours take out the arbi from the fridge , arrange the arbi in an oven proof flat bottomed bowl or plate.
  8. Place this bowl in the microwave oven and micro for 5 - 6 minutes , this is to take out the extra moisture from the arbi , do not micro at one go , cook it for 2 , 2 minutes.
  9. You can also bake them in an oven for 10 minutes or can roast them in a non stick pan.

My Tip:

Do not over boil the arbi , always keep them in the fridge for marination . Always add salt in the end while making the gravy while adding milk , otherwise the milk can curdle .
