Hello friends. Today while going through my refrigerator I came across some veggies namely peas, corn and some yam. The day was a rainy one and I was in a mood to enjoy. And thus this idea came quick of making some fritters and I decided to do so with yam. Yam can be used in many ways. We generally make curries, stir-fries our of it but I decided to do something even better and here it came as an idea to make some crunchy munchy goodie from it. It turned out well and so let’s learn how to make a boring leisurely afternoon more fun, with more taste.
- Yam – 250 gms
- Gram Flour or Besan – 250 gms
- Salt – According to taste
- Dry mango or Amchur powder – 1 tbsp
- Asafoetida or hing – A pinch
- Red chilly powder – 1 tsp
- Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
- Chaat masala(optional) – A pinch
- Garam Masala – 1 tsp
- Vegetable Oil – For frying
Scrape, wash and cut the yam into thin strips and blanch it in a saucepan.
When the yam is firm but cooked remove it from gas and let it cool.
Now take a vessel, add to it the given amounts of gram flour or besan, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, dry mango or amchoor powder, asafoetida or hing, garam masala powder and make a smooth batter of it with water.
Now heat oil in a wok. Dip the yam pieces in the batter and release in hot oil. Deep fry the yam until lightly browned. The fritters are done.
Remove on tissue paper. Garnish by sprinkling some chat masala and serve with tomato or green chilly ketchup, green chutney, hummus, mayonnaise or other such dips.
