Yam tawa fry recipe

Yam tawa fry recipe | sennai kizhangu roast recipe – Village style Yam tawa fry recipe with detailed step-by-step pictures.

Sennai kizhangu we call it in Tamil, Yam is a root vegetable. We make chips out of it and this is a very popular one. I haven’t tried making yam chips. At our home, except me, no one likes Yam as it gives an itchy feeling to the tongue. But if we cook in the right way this itchiness can be eliminated.

First, to avoid the itchiness in Yam, choose the old yam and buy. If you are not sure whether it is old or not, then buy it and keep it for a week or 2 and then start using it. Do not store the yam in the fridge. Always keep it open.

This Yam tawa fry I learned from my friend Rinku a long time back in Singapore. The addition of tamarind removes the itchiness in the Yam. This Yam tawa fry pairs well with Sambar rice, rasam, and curd rice too.
