Besan Wali Arbi

besan wali arbi

Besan wali arbi or besan ki arbi is a dish from Rajasthani cuisine. You can increase the quantity of amchoor to turn it into ‘khatti arbi’. This is a very tasty side with roti or paratha made frequently by me as besan wali arbi is liked much by my family.
Recipe of besan wali arbi
