Chena Moloshyam | Yam in chilly sauce

A quick-fix if you have yam handy.Yam,being the starchy and versatile, gives the required base and consistency in this spicy moloshyam.Maugre it’s peppery feel,you can’t ignore this simple curry I bet !

Ingredients

300 gm yam,cut into medium pieces
2 cup water
salt as required

To Grind

4-5 dry red chillies (depends on your tolerance level)
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tsp black pepper seeds
4 cloves of garlic

To garnish

2 sprig curry leaves
1 tsp coconut oil

Method

Pressure cook the yam adding salt and water.Cook in full flame till four whistles.Switch off and keep.Meanwhile grind the ingredients mentioned into a smooth paste.Open the cooker lid and bring the yam to the stove.Pour the ground masala to the yam and cook in medium flame.Mash the yam with the back of a spatula and check the seasoning. Moloshyam should be of a medium thick consistency.Switch off and sprinkle the curry leaves and coconut oil.Serve with rice !

    This looks good. The only thing I do not like about yam is the preparation of the vegetable ( root). But this one seems so good, I think I will include it in my next shopping list. You have a nice gravy without the use of coconut.
