I was completely taken by surprise…how this bland starchy roots, takes in all the influences from the basic ingredients and eventually turns up into a fulfilling meal! So, here is a simple recipe for the day.
Yucca/cassava roots 1 large
Dry red chili 3 crushed
Chana + Urad dal – 2 teaspoons
Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon
Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Curry leaves few
Oil few spoons.
Peel and dice the roots into heavy chunks. Boil for complete 20 minutes.
Once they are done, discard the water and mash the tuber. I left them bit chunky for extra taste.
Well, now temper the spices in oil and runt eh seasonings over the tubers made…stir-fry for 5-7 minutes.
Serve as a side dish or main dish.
