How to make yam raita

  1. This is how a suran looks. Before we begin making the Farali Suran raita, scrub and wash the yam. Instead of yam you can also make use of purple yam, potato or sweet potato which are allowed to be consumed during fasting. Peel the suran and discard the skin. Wash yam again to get rid of the dirt. The yam peels contain calcium oxalate/saponins juice. When comes in contact with the skin, it starts to itching and causes redness. You can use rubber gloves while cutting them or apply coconut oil on your hands before cutting.
  2. Roughly chop the yam.
  3. Transfer to a pressure cooker along with water and salt. Pressure cook on a medium flame for 4 whistles. Allow the pressure to release naturally and open the lid carefully to prevent yourself from getting burned by steam. 
  4. Drain the water, while it is still warm, mash the yam using a potato masher.
  5. Transfer the peeled, boiled and mashed suran to a deep bowl.
  6. Add 1 cup of fresh curds. Check out this recipe with detailed step by step images and prepare thick delicious curd at home

Raitas and curds are my favourite and having a raita on the fast day is an awesome feeling. This yam raita is ready in no time. the rock salt adds an amazing andspecific taste to this yam raita. Also because the yam is grated you will not find it bland.
