Spicy Yam Stir-fry

I just love simple stir fries with curd rice or with sambhar..one among those stir fried dishes is this yam stir fry...when i was kid, my mom used to make yam fritters and yam chips coz of my dad who never ever fond for stir fries..sometime she used to make out this easy stir fry with yams and i still remember that we two have to finish that whole bowl as none at home never liked this stir fry..its has been ages i have prepared stir fry with yam, last week when we went to Indian groceries, i picked some fresh yam..back home i prepared this easy and spicy yam stir fry with coriander powder and chilly powder within few minutes and we enjoyed having with curd rice...u doesnt need of chopping onions, grinding spices or frying masalas to prepare this simple stir fry..




1/4kg Yam
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
1tbsp Coriander seed powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
Salt
OIl
3nos Curry leaves

Peel and chop the yam as small cubes, cook this chopped yam pieces with turmeric powder and water in a pan for few minutes or until the yam pieces get half cooked, strain the water and keep aside..

Heat enough oil and let splutters the urad dal and mustard seeds, add immediately the curry leaves and cooked yam pieces..saute for few minutes, finally add the coriander seed powder, chilly powder and salt and toss until the yam pieces get well coated with the spice powder,springle some water, cook everything in simmer with lid closed..put off the stove once the water get disappears..

Serve hot as side dish with any sort of rice dish..
