Senai Kizhangu Masala Varuval / Suran Subzi / Spicy Yam Fry

Senai Kizhangu Masala Varuval:


Yam – sliced into chips
Turmeric powder 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Coriander powder 1 spoon
Garam masala powder 1/4 spoon
Fennel seeds powder 1 spoon
Cumin seeds powder 1/2 spoon
Pepper powder 1/4 spoon
Tamarind paste 1/2 spoon
Curry leaves few

In a wide vessel, mix all the above spice powders, salt and tamarind. Coat them to the yam chips. Allow this to marinate for 2-3 hours.

Then shallow fry them in hot oil, until crisp and reddish brown.

Ta-da, its ready to dig-in…that is why I categorized it under ‘Appetizers’:)
