Karunai Kizhanghu Podimas (Yam Stir Fry)



Try this, a real yummy one. Will be divine with curd rice ;)


Ingredients:
Karunai Kizhangu (Yam) - 250 grams
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Black gram (Urad Dal / Uzhunthu) - 1 teaspoon
Cury leaves - few
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Asafoetida powder (Perungayam) - 1/4 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 2 teaspoons or as spicy required
Coriander powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Lemon juice or Tamarind juice - 1/2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Oil - 1/2 tablespoons

Method :
Wash yam, peel off the skin and cut into small cubes. The more tiny you cut, more tasty yam would be ;)

Heat oil in a pan and allow mustard seeds to splitter in it.

Add curry leaves, black gram, asafoetida powder, yam and fry them.

Stir constantly and add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and mix them well.

Let it cook for 15 minutes, but keep stirring often.

Then add salt, lemon juice and saute it until they are cooked well.

Serve hot with rice.


Cooking time : 25 minutes
