Arbi fry/ Taro Roots/Karva chauth Special
This is my mom recipe. Only difference is that in those days non stick pans are not available so more oil is used but now as I cooked in my non stick pan less oil is used.
Today is karva chauth so I prepared arbi fry as my hubby liked this veggie with puri or kachori.
Karva Chauth is a one-day festival celebrated by Hindu women in North India in which married women fast from sunrise to moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands.A woman looking through a sieve after completing the fast looking at the rising moon and then at her husband.
