I love making pulikulambu or theyal with this beautiful yam. But the one thing that puts me off is the iching it causes on the throat. I learned this trick from my mum and she told me if you add tamarind while cooking the yam, it removes the itching it creates on the throat. I followed that step and it really worked. So try this way to clean yam and i will be posting a wonderful gravy with this tomorrow.
Yam Ordinary - 7
Water as needed
Tamarind Pulp - 3 tblspn ( Click here for recipe)
Wash yam very well in water. Add them to a sauce pan and cover them with fresh water.
Bring them to boil and cook them for 15 to 20 mins till they are cooked and tender.
Drain them and peel the skin off.
Now add them back into the same pan and cover with fresh water.
Add in tamarind pulp and bring that to a boil again. Let it boil for 5 more mins.
Now drain them and they are ready to use.
