Suran ke Dahi Vade

Yam peeled and cut into medium sized pieces,
2 to 3 tbsp corn flour
2 tsp cumin seeds(jeera)
1/2 tsp ginger paste
3-4 green chilli finely chopped
salt to taste
curd , beaten finely
jeera powder-1/4 tsp
Red chilli Powder-1/4 tsp

Coriander leaves to garnish


Clean & Pressure cook the yam.Drain off the water immediately.Now mash the yam, add Corn flour, cumin seeds, salt, ginger paste and chopped green chillies to it.Mix it properly. Make small balls of it.Heat the oil in a wok.Deep fry mixture balls, remove when golden brown.

Place them on a blotting paper so that extra oil will be absorbed.
Suran vada is ready. Now take the curd in a bowl & Add salt to it,Whip it thoroughly such that there will be no lumps in it. Take 5-6 suran vada in a plate & pour the whipped curd over it.Decorate the curd with jeera powder,red chilli powder & Coriander leaves. Refrigerate before serving.

In place of corn flour, you can also use Rajgira Atta . When made this way it can also be used as eatable while observing “Fast”. This is one of farali(some thing which we can eat while observing fast) recipe . Normally it is made this way only. Just as a slight variation to it , I have used corn flour instead of Rajgira atta. That gave it crispiness. One can also use sago flour, if want to make it as eatable for fast.

Supriya : thanks a lot dear! I can understand how irresistible it can be for such dishes for curd lovers like yo u and me! When you visit India , you can try any of these dish made of suran. For now I just wish that you can be somewhere near by to share all these recipes with me. :)

Mantu : I don’t know what ‘arbi’ is. But I find from google that what you call arbi is sweet potato actually. To clear this confusion I have already posted picture of suran . Suran is what is called Yam Elephant in English. Refer to my earlier post http://creativepooja.blogspot.com/2006/11/vegetable-of-week-is-sooranyam.html, and http://creativepooja.blogspot.com/2006/11/delicious-sooran-cubes.html . let me know if it clears your doubt or not.
Thanks for dropping by.
Stay tuned.
