Karunai Kizhangu Fry | Elephant Yam masala fry

Karunai Kizhamgu Fry Recipe
Although elephant yams are not that great looking they taste amazing if you turn them to great recipes. This Yam roast is one such which is Amma's signature dish, I love this so so much that I have constant requests for her to make it. It took such a long time for this recipe to get featured here the reason being I wanted her to make it so that I can blog about it. Amma has been patient with me and never refuses to share her recipes and time so that I can blog about them. Elephant Yams are known for their health benefits especially for women. Although they are carbohydrates they are rich in protein, lower cholesterol, asthma, lower blood sugar, abdominal pain, cramps, for healthy female reproductive system, balance hormones in women and antioxidant rich. If you are reading this and never tried yam I urge you to have this vegetable just for the health benefits it offers. I will be posting more recipes with yam in the coming days.

COOKS WISDOM

TIP 1


1. Pressure cooking yam makes sure that the yam is evenly cooked. I usually make the yam as chunks of 1/2 inch thickness.


TIP 2


2. Instead of tamarind paste you can add lemon juice/ tomato ketchup/ any fish fry masala powder.


TIP 3


3. This recipe does not give fully crispy yam roast but partially if you want to be too crisp then you can add more rice flour or pat the batter coated yam in roasted semolina and fry.
