Yam masiyal2

Karunai Kilangu(Elephant foot yam) Masiyal is one of the best currys that i ever crave for. Its an all in one sweet, sour and spicy curry. It goes super good when mixed with ghee rice or even with curd rice.

I am sure it would be a favorite of all dish. :)

Elephant Foot Yam(Karunai Kilangu)- 1/2 kg
Tamarind paste - 2 tblsp
Onion - 4
Red Chilly - 2
Chilly powder - 2 tsp
Jaggery - 2 tbl sp
Rice flour - 2 tbl sp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Turmeric powered - a pinch
Salt - for taste
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - few

Yam Masiyal


Pressure cook Yam and peel the skin and smash it smoothly. In a bowl, mix together the smashed yam, turmeric powder, asafoetida, salt, jaggery, tamarind paste, rice flour and chilly powder.

Now in a pan(Preferably non stick kadai), take 2 tbl sp of oil and season with mustard, curry leaves and red chilly. Now dice onion into small pieces and add it to the pan. Fry till golden brown. Once done add the yam mixture to it and keep stirring it in low flame for 20 min(until it rolls out without sticking to the sides). You can add more oil if it sticks too much to the sides. Finally add the cut coriander leaves to it.

Yummy yam masiyal is ready.

You can mix this along with ghee rice or have it along with curd rice too. :)

Happy eating :)
