What is Suran ki Sabzi?

Suran also known as Elephant Yam is a popular root vegetable. Suran is a versatile vegetable that can be used to prepare gravy dishes, baked or fried chips as well. I have prepared Suran Tikkis which turned out to be super yummy and has been a regular snack at home. You can check and try my recipe for Suran Tikki. Not just tikkis, I have also prepared Suran | Yam Chips as well. Yam chips are a healthy snack and a perfect and best substitute for potato chips. You sure must give it a try and look out for my recipe for Suran | Yam Chips.

Suran ki Sabzi | Suran Masala is a delicious dish which calls for a very few basic ingredients available at home. You can use boiled suran or just cook it along with the masalas. I prefer to cook it with the masalas as it wonderfully absorbs all the delicious flavours. Suran sabzi is a perfect substitute for non – veg and so I do add some chicken masala to this which enhances the taste of this dish, one can also choose to add pav bhaji masala or any garam masala. Ofcourse, you need to be a little careful while peeling the yam, I prefer wearing gloves however, one can choose to apply some oil to the palms before handling suran. Do try my recipe and I’m sure you’re gonna love it. Don’t miss to check the video that I have shared for Suran ki Sabzi at the end of the post.
