Elephant Yam / Karunai Kizhangu Deep Fry

     Its the best and every green combo with Simple Sambar II, Simple Sambar I and with Keerai Masiyal. My mom use to prepare this recipe mostly with Keerai Masaiya, as my brother is not much fond of this recipe, i'll be the Queen to ruin the dish. Will Enjoy this fry atmost with Keerai Masiyal, as i love Keerai always.



INGREDIENTS
Thick sliced Elephant Yam / Karunai Kizhangu - 1/4 kg
Turmeric Powder - Pinch
Chilly Powder - 1 spoon
Kitchen King Masala - Pinch (Optional)
Salt - To Taste
Oil - To Fry



METHOD:
     Keep a thick bottomed pan. Heat 4 or 5 spoons of oil. Add the sliced elephant yam, and mix gently with the oil. Add Turmeric powder, chilly powder, kitchen king masala powder and required salt. Saute it for nearly 30 mins in simmer, until it reaches crispy consistency. (Inbetween add a spoon of oil along the sides of pan)

This fry looks sooo crispy and yummy... As suggested, u can boil it before frying... but, u shud not boil it completely... Just put it for a few mins in boiling water and then take it out. Just a suggestion, you can try next time :-)
