How to Make

  • Add hot water to the tamarind and extract thick tamarind juice.
  • Wash the yam in water with which the rice was cleansed (this prevents the yam irritation in the throat).
  • Boil the yam in the pressure cooker up to 5 whistles, peel the skin and mash coarsely.
  • Heat oil in a pan (gingelly oil preferred), season with fenugreek seeds first and when it browns, add mustard seeds and allow to splutter.
  • Add red chillies, a little water and then the tamarind juice.
  • Add salt to taste and then the mashed yam and the slit green chillies.
  • Allow to boil well and when thick, remove from fire.
