  • Tamarind is added in water because yam may cause itchiness when eaten without any tangy or sore thing added to it.

Recipe Notes

  • I got yam cubes from super market. But if you are cutting it at home always wash it thoroughly many times in water to remove all dirt & apply some oil in your hands before cutting it to avoid any itchiness.
  • You can make balls of above mixture deep fry & put it in some curry. it can be eaten as kofta curry.
