Yam Fritter


Fritter / vada take a clean seat on the plate when it is a full meal order. It for sure adds punch to the meal and goes well with dal rice and rasam rice :) 

Inspite of not being a great fan of fried food, I still love vadas, especially when it is home made. 

I just loved this elephant foot yam fritter when mom made it a couple of weeks back since it was really very different and tasty. For a change it went really well with hot rice and ghee :)



Grated yam (Elephant foot yam) - 2 cups
Red chillies - 5 
Garlic pods - 8
Rice flour - 3 tblsp
Salt - for taste
Oil - for frying



Wash and peel the skin of yam using a peeler and grate it. 

Grind the grated yam along with red chillies, garlic and salt into a coarse paste. 

Take the ground paste in a mixing bowl and mix in the rice flour. Now make small flat balls and fry them in hot oil until brown on both sides. 

Enjoy eating this fritter along with hot ghee rice :)

delicious fritters, sounds new to me.

Interesting> Does the yam not need special treatment. Here we need to boil it with something sour.
but otherwise this is a great recipe. MAking it asap.

The fritters look delicious. I have never cooked yam before but would really love to. It would help people like me if you included a picture of yam in your recipe so we can look out for it in the Asian stores.
