Yam Squares



This is one of the best ways to consume yams marinated and shallow fried.And what a treat it is to the palate.Now for the recipe.

Ingredients:
Yam-500 gms
Turmeric-3 pinches
Red chilly powder-3/4 tsp
Coriander powder 1 1/2 tsp
Tamarind paste-2 tbsp
oil to fry 
Salt to taste

Method: Cut yam into squares with medium thickness.Immerse them in a cup of water and cook till done.Drain the water once cooked.Mix the red chilly powder,coriander powder,turmeric and salt in the tamarind paste.Coat the cooked yam squares with this paste.Leave this aside for 15 mins.Shallow fry these on a tava with required oil.To be well done, this will require at least 15 mins when cooked on slow flame.I can eat them straight from the skillet with zero waiting time.
