Sepankizhangu Fry

I have already posted a poriyal dish using taro root/sepankizhangu . Now it's the deep fry version. It might not be that healthy as it is fried. But, once in a while it is ok to have these. This dish is a great accompanient for sambar rice, rasam rice or curd rice. The preparation work can be done ahead and refrigerated even the previous day. When you are ready to eat, you can just fry 'em up. It is great evening snack too. Try it for yourself. You will like it.

sepankizhangu- 6
onion- 1 (sliced)
turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
chilli powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Besan powder- 2 1/2 tbsp
Rice flour- 1/2 tbsp
Rava- 2 tsp
curry leaves- few
salt- as required

Pressure cook sepankizhangu for 1 whistle. Cool and peel off the outer skin. Cut into two or bite size pieces. Add the rest of the ingredients. Blend well. Keep adding water little by little until the besan coats the taro root completely. Check for seasonings and deep fry in hot oil. Enjoy with rice.
