Grilled Arbi

Grilled Arbi

I love arbi but used to stay away from it because.

1\. its full of carbs.

2\. its good when its made with lots of oil :(

3\. I cant just peeled it without having to itch my hands for the whole day afterwards.

But all this atleast the last 2 parts were till sometime back when I discovered that we can grill this vegetable beautifully.... I used to boil it and then grill but then I read at some blog about steaming and grilling which seemed like an even healthier option.

So now I have a much healthier version of arbi which satisfies health freak as well as the taste buds.... Iya the fellow arbi fan and Goofy as u had asked for it... this post is for both of u.... enjoy the arbi.
