I made Kalan with yam a day before as it tastes better after a few hours.
Will post pics of the Onam Lunch in my next post.
For now Wish you all a Wonderful Onam.
Yam or Raw Banana cut into squares
Yogurt - sour yogurt is best for this dish .It needs to be beaten to remove any lumps
Pepper powder 1 tsp
For the coconut paste
coconut + turmeric (haldi)+green chili - grind all this
For the temperingMustard seeds (rai) 1 tsp
Fenugreek seeds (methi)1/2 tsp
Dry red chili - 3
Curry leaf -5/6
Once the yam is half cooked add the coconut paste and boil.
Now add in the beaten yogurt and shut the flame,if you boil it further the yogurt with curdle.you do not want that do you?
Temper with mustard seeds,fenugreek seeds,curry leaf and dry red chili.
Cover with a lid for a while,it tastes once the flavours mix in well.
Serve it for your Onam 2012 Sadya !!
