                    Arbi ki sabji with gravy


Arbi ki sabji with gravy is a very delicious vegetable recipe. Arbi is not a popular vegetable and most of the people don't like to eat it.
In fact, this dish is prepared in my home for the first time, even I and my family also never thought of eating this vegetable.But I got bored of eating those regular vegetables and decided to try a new vegetable. Saw this vegetable in the market and decided to make it delicious.
Generally this vegetable is prepared dry by frying. So, I decided to make it with gravy. Made it with my imagination and unbelievably it came out so good.
When the dish was ready, my son came to the kitchen asking Wow, such a good aroma, what dish have you prepared ? when I told him, he just left making faces because he never ate this vegetable. But he could not stop himself by trying it. And after eating, he was surprised and said why didn't you prepare this vegetable before ? it is so yummy.
I served the vegetable to my husband in the dinner, he just ate it and asked which vegetable is this ? When I said Arbi he was also surprised and finally no vegetable was left for me, because I prepared it in  small quantity because never expected such a good result.
Please try this recipe and serve it without telling the name and see the result.
Arbi is the root of the plant and its leaves are also used to prepare popular and yummy Gujarati dish Patra.
