Yam(Suran) Vadai

I got some frozen yams and my husband didn't liked the usual "Karunai kuzhambu". So I had to search for new recipes and found this good one. As any vadai this tastes good and it stays crispy for 4-5 hours. I used the frozen yam and this can be substituted for fresh ones too.

This recipe makes around 8 medium sized vadais.


Frozen Yam - 1 cup
Chopped Onions - 1/2 cup
Corn flour - 3 tbsp
Rice flour - 1 tbsp
Green Chilli - 2
Ginger - 1/2 inch
curry leaves - 2 tbsp
Oil- to fry


1. Thaw the yams in cold water and steam them for 10 mins. If you are using fresh yams, then clean the skin and pressure cook for 2 whistles.

2. Grind the Green chili and ginger to a coarse paste

3. Mash the yam and add cornflour, rice flour, grinded paste, salt, onions and curry leaves. Mix them well and make small balls of them

4. Heat oil in a pan. When it is ready, press the balls to vada shape and drop them in oil carefully. Cook on medium high until golden brown on both sides.

5. Serve hot as a snack with any green or coconut chutney.
