Yam Fry

Here we are in the Third Week of Blogging Marathon # 18. And my choice is dry sautes. I am a big fan off kootu and curries in Indian cuisine be it north indian or south indian cuisines. But at times we need to have dry subzis or dry curries to accompany our thali or daily meals. There are some dry sautes which are very close to my heart, meaning I like to make them as well as eat them. I will be presenting three such dishes this week. Do check what my fellow bloggers are cooking this week

Yam - 200 gm
Red chili powder - 2 tbsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder - 1tsp
Salt - to taste
Tempering - oil, mustard seeds and curry leaves


Cut Yam into 1 inch cube pieces and cook till it is 3/4th done
Remove from water and let it rest for some 10 minutes
Add the spice powders along with salt to the boiled yam and mix well
Ensure that all the yam cubes are coated with the spice powder mixture
Marinate this for about 20 minutes
After 20 minutes add oil in a frying pan
When the oil is hot add mustard seeds and curry leaves
After the sputtering of mustard seeds are done , add the marinated yam and saute well 
Saute the yam in medium or slow flame to get the right texture and roasted yam
