It is very important to steam leaves well, sometimes when under cooked these leaves can cause throat itchiness.  No need to worry about this fact if you steam leaves more than 15 minutes.

  2. Thank you soooooo much for this recipe Ms.Chef!!! 😘😘 I can’t wait to try it! Here we won’t get arbi ke patte in market easily. Most of the people grow it in their garden, but don’t sell it because they finish it off by themselves. Chhattisgarhi people love dishes made with these leaves! 😀 will share this recipe with my mom’s friends as well. They’re gonna love it. Thank you again 😘😘
