Elephant foot yam shallow fry |Senai Kizhangu Varuval |Suran Fry

Senai Kizhangu / Karnai kizhangu/ elephant foot yam , it goes on . Me and my daughter loves this yam which ever way it is prepared.  There are many ways to prepare this yam,. This is used in most of the Kerala recipes like Avial, Masiyal and many more.
                 Cleaning is a must in this vegetable. I actually clean it  four to five times in water. the outer skin is hard and irritable. so remove it first with a bigger knife. It cause some itching sensation in the hands. Many people are allergic to this veggie, so allergic people do not try this recipe. Many people love this veggie like me. I Know two types of varuval in  yam. I learn one type from my mom and other from my mom in law. Now im posting my mom in laws recipe. This recipe source is my MIL.  This is shallow fried in the heavy bottom  tawa.  The main taste maker in this yam fry is tamarind juice. Here we go top the recipe.

Tamarind juice – 4tbsp (semi thickness) or  to make the paste

Use all the paste. Fry it till golden brown on both the sides. fry in sim. it takes longer time comparatively. Drain the oil well as this yam drinks oil like anything, drain it with a tissue.
