Seppankizhangu pepper fry | Arbi pepper fry | Milagu masala – A simple pepper fry made using colocasia | arbi | seppankizhangu in Tamil. Recipe with full video and tips on how to cook Seppankizhangu perfectly.

Seppankizhangu | arbi or colocasia in English is one of the rare vegetables I cook in my kitchen. Though I like it, others in the family don’t prefer this much. So I cook this rarely. My mom makes it very yum and it is one of my most favorite ones during my childhood days. Or neighbour aunty used to make this version of seppankizhangu roast and as kids, we used to love this a lot.

It used to be the deep-fried version but I made it in a Tawa fry style only. The roast turned out very well and took me back to my childhood days. The same you can do it with yam | suran, raw banana or potato too.

Usually, it is a bit tricky to cook Arbi | seppankizhangu as it tends to cook very fast and gets mashed. This method I am using for many years and works very perfectly. Very long back I have posted this tip on Instagram and it was tried by many readers. If you are using a pressure cooker, just wash the arbi and put this in a vessel. Cover the vessel with a plate and keep it inside the cooker. Do not add any water into the arbi vessel, just washing is enough.

Don’t forget to add water to the cooker. The key points are, do not to add water to the arbi and cover it with a lid. Even you can keep rice also in the same cooker in another vessel and pressure cook it for 4 whistles.
