Fennel Flavoured Spicy Yam Roast

We get fresh yam in Indian grocery very much easily,obviously i never failed to get them whenever i go there.Back home i usually cook them partially with turmeric powder and salt in hot water,once they gets cooled i'll freeze them for further use.So that you can cook up these frozen yam cubes easily as anything, you can make out any kind of dishes with this already cooked frozen yam cubes quickly as they are already ready to cook. Weekend while cleaning my freezer, i got a packet of already cooked yam cubes.Without any hesitation i prepared this quick,spicy,yummy,crispy yam roast flavoured simply with fennel seed powder and spiced with chilly powder,salt and rice flour.This roast tastes simply awesome with curd rice or sambhar rice.Sending to SYF & HWS Series-Fennel seeds guest hosted by Kaveri,event by Anu.


2cups Yam (cubed & thawed)
1tbsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Fennel seed powder
2tbsp Rice flour
Salt
Oil

Take the thawed yam cubes in a vessel,add the red chilly powder, fennel seed powder,rice flour and enough salt, mix well until the yam pieces (sprinkle water if needed) gets well coated with the spices.

Heat oil for shallow fry, gently sprinkle the spiced yam cubes to the hot oil,fry until they turns crispy on both sides,drain it with a paper towel and serve hot as side dish or as an appetizier.

  8. Lovely. I wish they would market yam like that - partially cooked and frozen. I hate the thought of cleaning and peeling yam, otherwise I love the veggie/root
