In this recipe, steamed purple yam is cooked in an aromatic tempering with cumin seeds, curry leaves and green chillies, garnished with fresh coriander and definitely, the addition of roasted peanuts are a highlight and takes the dish onto another level.


WHAT IS THE MEANING OF YAM?

Ratalu in English is Yam or Indian purple Yam. Yam or Ratalu can also be called Kand - and all are the same thing. The yam vegetable is a common name for edible tubers.

According to experts Ratalu or Purple Yam has many health benefits, although it is a starchy vegetable.

Being a good source of complex carbohydrate Ratalu falls in a Low GI healthy food group, means it regulates steady rise in blood sugar level. Ratalu has a brown coloured thick skin and pink/purple flesh which is rather starchy and sticky.

We add roasted peanuts to the stir fry which is a favourite in other recipes too such as Potato and Peanut StirfryPotato in peanut sauceStuffed Peanut Capsicum and Corn on the Cob Curry in peanut gravy,
