Seppankizhangu is a variety of potato, but with a sticky nature. This Seppankizhangu Fry is a simple side dish for rice along with sambar,  rasam or mor kuzhambu. It is everybody’s favourite in my family. I love seppankizhangu to the core. My most fav combo is with Mor Kuzhambu. Because of its sticky nature, Chotu calls this as sticky potato. Amma tempers this Seppankizhangu fry with ajwain. It gives such a magical aroma & taste to it. For another version of this try this RECIPE.

Now to the recipe…

Seppankizhangu Fry Ingredients:

  • Seppankizhangu – 1/2 kg
  • Carom Seeds ( Ajwain) – 1 tsp
  • Chilli Powder – 1.5 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/8th tsp
  • Besan powder – 2 tbsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Oil – 6-7 tbsp



  • Wash seppankizhangu, Boil a pan with water and cook it for 20 – 25 mins. It should be soft but not mushy. Once cooked, peel the skin and slice it into round pieces. Heat pan with oil and temper with carom seeds. Carom seeds will splutter very quickly.

 Seppankizhangu Fry My Magic Pan


  1. You can pressure cook seppankizhangu for 1 – 2 whistles. I prefer this way as it might turn out mushy.
  2. Chop the veggie evenly to get perfect roasting.
  3. You can marinate the sliced pieces along with the salt, chilli & turmeric powder for 10 mins and then fry too.
