Yam Fry(Suran/ chena kilangu masala)

We visited one of our close friend's place few months back. They prepared yam fry as one of the side dish. OMG... It was tasting really good. Lini akka your yam fry rocks. So few days back, i gave it a try . It came out really good and we loved it. Same taste like lini akka's yam fry. Next time i have to try her beef fry recipe.

I used frozen chopped yams to make this dish. If you are using fresh yam, peel off the skin. Then chop into bite size pieces and cook along with some water, salt and turmeric till it become soft. Simple to make and tastes very good with mild curry's/ gravy's.

You will need:

  • 2 cups of chopped yam
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp pepper powder
  • salt for taste
  • 2 tbsp oil


Step 1:

Cook the yam for few mins in water along with turmeric and salt till it become soft. Discard the water once the yam is cooked well


Heat oil in a non stick pan. When the oil becomes hot add the cooked yam and saute it for 2 mins. Then add chilli powder, pinch of turmeric powder, cumin powder. Check for salt at this time. Saute it uncovered in a low flame for 10 more mins. When its ready add some pepper powder and saute well for one more min. Serve it hot with dal curry and rice.

I got few awards last week from my wonderful friend Ramya.

Thanks Ramya for passing these awards to me.
