Arbi chips, i tasted it from my friend lunch box. She came from hostel, i got this recipe from her hostel cook. I tried it at my home, me and my sister loved it very much. So here i like to share this recipe. Very flavourful and spicy dish. You can have it as snack as such or as side dish in your meal. Hope you will try and let me know how it turns out.
