Cheppankizhangu fry/ Arbi fry

Found these Arbis in the Indian shop here. I've never seen them before in India,the shopkeeper was the one who told me that it was Cheppankizhangu and very similar to the karnakilangu that I've seen back in India. This is a spicy fry which goes along well with any gravy, but I love it best with plain curd rice:)

Ingredients :
Arbi - 1/4 kg
Red chili powder - 2 tsp
Coriander powder - 3 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - a pinch
Turmeric powder - 1/" tsp
Besan - 2 tbsp
salt - as needed
oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 2 sprigs
Tamarind thick juice or extract - 2 tsp

-Boil the Arbi with salt in a pressure cooker for 3 whistles.
-Mix the boiled Arbi with the powder,besan ,tamarind juice and salt.Let it sit for 20 mins.
-In a pan heat the oil , when it heats up splutter the mustard and curry leaves.Add the Arbi mixture and mix well.
-Fry on low heat until the Arbi is well browned.
