Yummy Yam

Now this yummy gravy is a cookbook inspired recipe that I adapted and tried it on elephant foot yam (Suvarna gadde/Suran). Yes, this curry infused with flavours made a perfect gravy for the vegetable.
Yam Curry

The recipe however used chicken, but trust me try this version. Because, we do just regular stuff with yam, it deserves something different and nice, so why not try yam. Vegetarians usually substitute potato, paneer, soya granules in recipes where meat is used. I was taking a chance trying this recipe with yam, because yam has earthy, flavour with a sweet tinge to it and to top it all I had never tried anything new with the vegetable.

Yam DelightI knew it was going to be alright had I tried the recipe with potatoes or paneer, but with yam I was sceptical until I tasted it.The humble yam gelled well with the flavours without losing its own. It was a delight indeed. I insist you try this recipe with yam, but if you are not a fan of this vegetable, then yes you have alternatives – potato, paneer, soya granules, cauliflower, or boiled eggs, any meat for non vegetarians. Try this recipe to see how this gravy acts like a base to many alternatives and making them tastier.
