This spicy fry is very easy to prepare and delicious too.I have prepared this recipe with frozen yam, if you get fresh one chop them like you do for potato finger fries.
Coconut – grated / dessicated
Ginger& garlic paste
1) Deep fry the chopped yam(1/2 kg or 1 lb) in oil and keep them aside.
2) Grind freshly grated coconut(1/2 cup), red chilies(4), coriander seeds(1 tbs),cinnamon(1), clove (1), ginger (1 inch) and garlic (3 cloves) into a coarse paste.
3) Heat oil in a pan and cook the above paste till the raw smell is gone.When the paste is well cooked add required amount of salt and yam pieces.
4) Keep sauteing till the yam becomes crispy.
You may use desiccated coconut instead of freshly grated coconut,garam masala instead of cinnamon&clove, coriander powder instead of coriander seeds, chili powder instead of whole red chilis and ginger-garlic paste instead of fresh ginger/garlic.
But remember fresh ingredients always add to taste. 🙂
Enjoy the yam fry!! Catch you soon in the next post.
