SENAI KILANGU VARUVAL (ELEPHANT YAM FRY)

Hi,

Today, I am sharing a simple yet authentic recipe in all the households of Tamilnadu. Elephant Yam or Senai Kilangu( Tamil) is a tuber crop, rich in minerals. Few people may be allergic to it's peel, it may cause itching. To avoid itching, before peeling, use disposable or reusable gloves or just rub your palms well with Coconut oil. The Yam is rich in fibre, hence recommended for Diabetes diet.





INGREDIENTS :

Yam - 1 medium size or 300gms
Chilli powder - 1 1/2 tsps
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - 1 tsp
Salt to taste


METHOD OF PREPARATION:

1) Peal the yam and clean it well. Finely, chop it in small cubes.





2) Heat oil in a heavy bottomed kadai. Meanwhile, mix all the spices and salt to the cubed yam and mix well. Once hot, add yam and cover with a lid , leave it half open and cook till the yam is cooked roasted but not burnt. Cook in slow flame. Stir it, once 2 to 3 minutes. Once fried well, remove from the flame.



Serve hot with Rice.
