Colocasia Pulusu / Sepankizhangu Kara Kuzhambu

Colocasia Pulusu / Sepankizhangu Kara Kuzhambu

Colocasia Puli Kuzhambu:


Taro roots/colocasia/ Sembu
Pearl Onions 1 cup
Garlic 5-7 cloves – crushed
Tomato 1 small – chopped
Tamarind paste 1/2 spoon
Chili powder
Jaggery 1 spoon
Sesame oil 1 table spoon
Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon
Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon
Fenugreek seeds 1 pinch
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Dry chili 1 minced
Curry leaves few.


Cook the roots in boiling water and peel the skin off, chop them and set aside.

In a wide iron wok, heat about 1/2 table spoon of oil.

Add the garlic, onions and keep frying. Now add tomatoes, cover and cook briefly.

Now add salt, turmeric, chili, jaggery and tamarind paste. Add cooked roots and a cup of water. Continue cooking over low heat without lid. Once the curry thickens, its done.

In a separate pan, heat oil and add all the tempering spices, wait till they pop and splutter…now run the same over the curry prepared. Yum, right.

Serve warm to go with plain steamed rice, yep…enjoy:)

    Lena, I wear clinical gloves while dealing with these kind of rooted veggies, hope this should work for you, as well. And also using lot of tamarind/lemon juice will help to avoid irritation.
