For paste – Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (expect) arbi leaves. Prepare a thick paste using water and keep aside.

Wash and clean the arbi leaves. Remove the stems and gently roll them with a rolling pin.

Prepare all the leaves in the same way. We will use 5-6 leaves for a roll.

Place a arbi leaf on the board, apply prepared besan paste on the back side of the leaf and place a second arbi leaf and repeat this process with 5-6 leaves. (see the video for reference). Now fold the leaves from both sides and prepare a tight roll, seal the ends with the help of besan paste. Keep aside and prepare a second roll in the same way.

Now place both rolls in a greased plate and steam for 15-20 minutes on high flame. Switch off the flame, take out steamed rolls from the steamer and allow to cool. Slice the roll in 1/2 cm thick slices.

You can deep fry them in hot oil or can shallow fry too. Enjoy hot and crispy arbi patra / alu vadi in the rainy season.
