Yam is one vegetable which i have never used or ate before my marriage. In my in-laws house its a custom to eat this vegetable on Diwali day however nobody use to like this.. So I also ate it for the sake like everybody else in the family but i loved the taste. Yam Kabab is my first prepration of yam which when i did for the first time was loved by the family. Here is how i made it to impress them as a newly wed bride…

Yield / Serves
Yam Cubes: 200 gm
Tamarind : half a size of lemon
Rice flour : 3-4 tbsp
Garam masala powder : 1tsp
Dried pommegranate seeds powder: 1tsp
Ginger Garlic paste : 1tsp

Oil for frying
Boil half a liter of water with salt & tamarind. Add washed yam cubes into it & cook for 10 min on medium flame. Once done separate yam from water & keep it in strainer for 5-7 min to remove excess water.
Tamarind is added in water because yam may cause itchiness when eaten without any tangy or sore thing added to it.
Now mash boiled yam cubes & add rice flour, ginger garlic paste, garam masala, red chili powder, pomegranate powder,salt , green chili & onions.MIx well & keep in freezer for 20 min
After freezing make small lemon size balls & press it to give a round shape or any desired shape.
Heat a tawa or a pan . Shallow fry the kababs 2-3 min each side & serve with your favorite dip.
- 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.
