  1. Cut yam into large pieces and wash well to get rid of the mud smell. Then steam it until soft yet crunchy enough to bite(You can even pressure cook it).
  2. Grind the ingredients listed under ‘to grind’ to a semi coarse paste without adding water(anyway onions will let out water by itself).
  3. In a mixing bowl add Tamarind paste,turmeric, chilli powder, coriander powders,Ginger Garlic Paste,salt ,Ground Paste along with the Yam Pieces.
  4. Marinate for 15 – 20 mins
  5. Heat a shallow pan and add the yam pieces, drizzle oil and toast it till golden brown. You can deep fry the yam pieces too. (Preferable to use non stick pan)
  6. Serve with freshly sliced lemon wedges and onion rings. Tastes best with hot steamed rice and curd rice
