  • Peel and wash the arbi. Let it dry or pat dry using a cloth. Then julienne cut the arbi (thin slices like potato fries).
  • Heat oil in a large pan. Use a large pan so you can fry all the arbi at once. Once the oil is heated, add the julienne cut arbi to the oil.
  • It will take about 10-15 minutes for the arbi to cook and get a light brown color. At that point, remove the arbi from the oil.
  • Now we will saute the arbi with spices. Heat oil in a separate sauce pan. Add kadi patta, rai, chopped green chilli to it.
  • When they start to splutter, add the spices and salt.
  • Add the fried arbi and mix it well with the spices.
  • The arbi is ready. Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
