This recipe of yam fry i learnt from my friend . It is surely a treat for yam lovers,like me. Yes me and my Varsha are a big fan of yam .And this method consumes less oil and even my hubby who is not a big fan of yam also liked this. Check out my sennai kizhangu curry and yam kola urundai too.

  • 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.

Rohini adding tamarind extract rids away the throat itch

Pari,sorry for not giving the english name for perungayam.It is hing/asfoeditia.

Looks so good, i make only curry & masiyal with Senai. Have tasted deep fried ones in marriages but this one looks very interesting without deep frying. Bookmarked.
