E-mail Print PDF

Ingredients

 Quantity  Measure  Ingredient  Description
4 Nos Chillies, Red Dry for grinding
0.5 Nos Coconut for garnishing
2 Tablespoon Cooking Oil for seasoning
4 Flakes Garlic for grinding
1 Teaspoon Mustard Seed for seasoning
1 Nos Onion for grinding
0.5 Kilogram Suran  
A Little Tamarind for grinding
1 Pinch Turmeric/Haldi for grinding

Method

Remove the outer skin of the Suran (yam), and cut it into small cubes, and soak it in water.

Soak the tamarind in a little bit of water, and keep it in a small container. It will eventually become soft, and you can then squeeze the tamarind, and take out the juice.

Scrape the coconut and keep the flakes aside for garnishing.

In the meantime, grind the masala with the ingredients kept for grinding. When the masala is ready, take it out and keep aside. Wash the mixer with a little water, and keep it aside.

Pour two tablespoons of cooking oil in a cooking vessel large enough to hold the Suran pieces, and heat it. Fry the mustard  kept for seasoning. Put the masala in the oil when the mustard seeds have stopped spluttering and fry it. Then add the Suran pieces after removing them from the  water.    The liquid in the vessel should be a little above the Suran pieces. As they get cooked, the will expand in size. The water will be absorbed, and you should watch that it does not dry, and the contents get burnt. So add some water if needed, till the Suran pieces are cooked. When they are done, the dish should be more or less dry. Taste and make adjustments if needed and when the Suran pieces are cooked, add the coconut kept for garnishing. Put the stove off, and cover it with its lid. As it cools, more moisture will be absorbed by the Suran pieces and the dish will be a dry one.

Suran contain iron, and are a good source of nutrients. Any vegetable that contains iron, turns black when kept out, without its natural cover, the skin.
