  • To clean and chop yam - Before you start working - apply oil on your knife and hands and then scrub the yam under running water and then make big slices or strips of 1 inches thickness.. Don't forget to grease your hands otherwise they may get itchy due to the yam's skin.
  • Then peel the yam skin carefully with a strong and sharp knife and chop into small cubes.(after peeling 1 kg whole Suran you will get around 750 gm suran pieces )
  • Wash the chopped suran pieces with enough water and then pressure cook with 2.5 glasses of water and 1/4 tsp turmeric . You may need to cook for 3-4 whistles depending on the quality of suran, But don't over cook it else it will get mashed up while stir frying.
  • You can also boil it in a pan then add some extra water and cook till done .
  • Drain the boiled suran on a colander to remove the extra water.
  • Mix all the spices and salt in a small bowl and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom wide pan or use a nonstick pan.
  • Now add the cumin and carom seeds in the oil,when they start to crackle add asafoetida and cloves and give it a stir.
  • Add the mixed spices in the pan and then immediately add the beaten yogurt and mix.
  • Keep stirring the yogurt until it start boiling.
  • Now add the boiled suran pieces in the yogurt and mix gently.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 3-4 minutes ,mix twice in between.
  • Now add the chopped coriander and mix gently.
