Most of the vrat recipes I have shared earlier were non-fried. Even the most commonly fried sabudana vada or aloo tikki, I make in appam pan to avoid deep frying. But this time my rationale for sharing this fried arbi recipe for Navratri was that if someone is going to observe a fast for 9 days straight, then they may not mind such a snack once in a while. Plus these taro root chips don’t soak up too much oil unlike say sabudana vada or aloo tikki.
I made these arbi chips in summer and yet they didn’t feel oily to taste. My family and most importantly Devansh, my kiddo, enjoyed the crispy arbi chips to the core. Another vegetable that’s allowed during Navratri that tastes good in chips form is sweet potato. I sometimes make them for my kiddo in French fries shape as sweet potatoes are lot more nutritious than regular potatoes. So when kids ask for French fries, serve them these arbi chips or Sweet potatoes fries instead. They enjoy it just as much and you will too; trust me. 🙂
I have carried these chips to eat in the car too and Devansh ate them readily despite them having gone a bit limp in the tiffin. So this will also work as a tiffin recipe.
You can view all Navratri recipes shared on my blog here. I have shared one more arbi recipe before, that of sukhi arbi sabzi, but that is not a vrat recipe. I make sukhi arbi using vrat ingredients as well but I am yet to share that recipe. Soon I hope. Meanwhile, here’s the fried arbi recipe for Navratri.
