Arbi Recipe Gravy Curry

Arbi recipe gravy curry is a unique and different way of using arbi or arvi in this curry. Arbi recipe here is a liquid based gravy curry into which goes tamarind extracted pulp and to thicken the gravy, paste of rice flour is added .

                   Arbi or arvi is a very rarely used vegetable but it actually is a very tasty vegetable if made into a curry or fried or made into any chutney. Today’s post is a Hyderabadi Arbi recipe where I have used arbi as kadhi. Every vegetable can be used to make kadhi such as bhindi ki kadhi, baingan ki kadhi etc..

                    The flavor of the dish is slightly tangy as tamarind water or pulp is added but, the flavor is balanced if rice flour paste or chick pea flour paste is added into it. Rice flour paste acts as thickening substance to any curry.

                   Arvi gosht  recipe is also one of the common recipes made in Hyderabadi households into which gosht or mutton is added to the kadhi or gravy curry. It goes well with rice but can also be eaten with rotis.
