Senaikilangu fry is one my family's favorite and I make it very often and pair up with a simple rasam or sambar.Here in U.S fresh yam is rarely available and it will be very expensive so I make it with the frozen one.This yam makes a itchy feel in the tongue so to reduce that one soak the chopped yam in tamarind water or add little bit of tamarind paste and fry.Now on to the recipe.................
|Red chilly powder||2tsp|
|Turmeric powder/manjal podi||1/4tsp|
Pound the garlic and fennel seeds in a mortar and set it aside.
Take the chopped yam in a bowl,to this add the chilly powder,turmeric powder,salt and tamarind paste.Mix it well.
Heat the pan with a tbs of oil,once it becomes hot add the pound garlic and fennel then add the curry leaves.Add the yam to this and fry it for a minute.
Sprinkle some water and cook it covered in a medium flame till the vegetable is cooked.Now add 2 tsp of oil and gram flour,keep it in low flame fry it till the vegetable becomes crisp.
Serve it with rice,sambar,rasam or curd.
- Fry it in a slow to medium flame to get crispy.
- If you are using fresh yam put the chopped yam in a boiling water for a minute or two with a piece of tamarind and pinch of salt,then drain it.
