Yam Stir Fry


Can anyone resist curd rice with some fried yam and pickle. My daughter certainly can’t. It is one of her favorites.

Chop up a yam in to large pieces. Add them to boiling water along with a pinch of turmeric. Cook it on low to medium heat till the yam gets tender. Remove and drain the water. Once the Yam has cooled chop into small pieces.

Heat oil, add in the usual ingredients like cumin, fenugreek seeds, coriander seeds etc. Add the Yam and also a little tamarind paste. The tamarind paste is to protect you from itchiness, which these roots vegetables can sometimes cause.

Enjoy a lazy lunchtime snack.
