Fried Yam Kismuri – 2

This is yet another type of fried Yam Kismuri that is made, the difference being that the coconut is ground here along with other condiments. It goes well with Rice or Rotis. Easy to prepare as the Yam can be fried and kept ready before hand!

Ingredients :

  • 250 gms Yam
  • 1/4 of a large coconut grated
  • 9 roasted red chillies
  • 2 tbsps coriander seeds
  • 1tsp Tamarind paste
  • 1 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 large onion chopped fine
  • 1 green chilly
  • Salt
  • 2 tsps Coconut oil
  • Oil for frying the Yam.

Method :

Deskin and wash the Yam well. Chop into extremely small pieces as shown in the picture above. Apply salt and keep aside for ten minutes so that it releases water. . Heat the oil in a pan. Squeeze out all the water from the Yam. Fry it in batches till crisp. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside. Chop onions, fine. Grate the ginger. Chop the chilly fine and crush with a little salt. Grind the coconut, roasted red chillies, coriander seeds, tamarind and ginger to a semi coarse paste with a little water. Tip it into a bowl. Add the chopped onions, crushed green chilly, coconut oil and the fried Yam pieces. Mix well. Allow the Kismuri to stand for half an hour before serving in order to allow the Yam to absorb moisture from the Masala.
