  • Keep it in the fridge for 1 –2 hours. Normally i make this for a weekday lunch,so i do it the previous night and keep in the fridge.
  • Heat a tawa and add a tblsp of oil and spread the yam slices in that. When it is done on oneside flip over on the otherside. Repeat this for the rest of the slices.
