Sirukizhangu Poriyal | Chinese Potato Fry | Koorkankizhangu Poriyal

Sirukizhangu Poriyal

Sirukizhangu also known as Koorkan kizhangu or Chinese potato, holds a special place in my heart as one of my favorite vegetables. It can be cooked in many ways. However, my absolute preference is cooking this potato with green gram dal – a recipe I'll be sharing soon. This recipe goes very well with rasam.
Koorkankizhangu Poriyal

Sirukizhangu Poriyal


Sirukizhangu - 250gms
Big onion - 1
Coconut- 2 tblspn
Red chilli - 2
Cumin / jeerakam - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Oil - 1 tblspn
Salt - to taste


Wash the sirukizhangu in excess water to remove it sands.

Pressure cook it for 4 whistles. Alternatively, you can peel its skin and cook.

Remove from flame and peel off the skin once cooled. Cut into thin slices. Chop onion.

Grind together coconut, cumin, red chilli coarsely and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When it starts to crackle, add finely chopped onion and curry leaves.

When onion becomes translucent, add in sirukizhangu. Sauté for a minute.

Add in ground coconut, turmeric and salt. Mix well.

Sauté for 3 mins and remove from flame.

Serve hot with rice, rasam.

  • You can peel off the skin before boiling but I feel boiling and peeling the skin is easy.
