Yam Curry

---------- Recipe via Meal-Master (tm) v8.01

Title: Yam Curry
Categories: Veg-cook, Sept.
Yield: 4 servings

1 lb Tender yams
1 To 2 Tbsp salt
3 c Vegetable oil for deep
2 In fresh ginger root
1 Garlic clove
2 To 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 t Cumin seeds
2 Green cardamoms
1 Bay leaf
4 Peppercorns
1 Inch stick cinnamon
1 t Turmeric
1/2 t Chili powder (or use cayenne
1 t Ground coriander
1/2 t Garam masala (optional)
To taste salt
4 oz Fresh tomatoes (or use 8 oz
Canned tomatoes)
4 T Yogurt
1 1/2 Cups water
1 T Chopped coriander leaves

The yams in this dish are cooked in a sauce very much like that
traditionally used for meat. Serve with chapatis and rice. The recipe is
derived from one in The Hamlyn Curry Cookbook, by Meera Taneja, which
I recommend highly.

(1) Peel the yams, cut them into 1 inch cubes, place in a colander and
sprinkle liberally with salt. Let stand 10-15 minutes, then dry on paper

(2) Meanwhile, finely chop the onion, ginger, and garlic, and roughly
chop the tomatoes. Heat the il over a moderate flame, add the cumin seed,
and cook until they begin to splutter. Add the chopped onion, ginger, and
garlic. Cook until the onion is a rich golden color. Add all the spices and
season with salt to taste. Cook a few seconds more, and then add the
tomatoes. Let this cook while you continue as below.

(3) Heat the oil for deep frying to 350 deg. F and cook the yam cubes,
a few at a time, until golden brown. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper. Set

(4) Add the yogurt to the tomato mixture, and continue to cook until the
oil begins to separate out. Add the water and bring to a boil. Let boil a
few minutes, then add the yam cubes, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for
about 25 minutes.

(5) Serve hot, garnished with the chopped coriander.

Difficulty: easy to moderate. Time: 1 hour preparation, 30 minutes
cooking. Precision: measure the ingredients.
