Fried Yam, Bitter gourd and Okra are three of the items that are a must have when having live in guests. They come in handy in making a variety of dishes. One can use fried Yam in making Koota, two varieties of Kismuri and a pickle too. Posting a simple Yam Kismuri today which goes well with Rice and Dal.
- 250 gms Yam
- 2 tsps Coconut oil
- 3 green chillies
- Oil for frying the Yam.
Deskin the Yam and wash it thoroughly. Chop it into extremely tiny pieces as shown in the above picture. Apply some salt and keep aside for ten minutes. You will notice that it releases water. Heat oil in a pan. Squeeze out the Yam and fry it in batches till crisp. Remove and drain on a kitchen towel. Chop onions the same quantity as the fried Yam. So also the grated coconut. Mince the green chillies. Crush them with a little salt. Mix the grated coconut, chopped onions, crushed green chillies, fried Yam and coconut oil. Mix thoroughly. Serve after half an hour as the Yam pieces require awhile to absorb the moisture of the onions and coconut. Goes well with hot rice or even with Roti.
