Good one, but on the bland side.took some time for arbi to be fully done.I tried a variation.substitue a couple of green chillies & red chillies(ground to paste) instead of chilli powder.Steam the arbi first for easier results.

Could have been better. The arbi was quite bland.. the only taste was that of the curd. Added in some garam masala toadd to the taste

I think it will be better if we first fry the arbi's and then put it into the curd.
