Yam (Senai Kizhangu)- 1/2 kg
Salt - 2 tbsp
Red Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Oil for frying

Mix salt in 1/4 cup of water and mix well so that all salt dissolves thoroughly. Dice yam into small cubes. Wash them thoroughly to remove the starch completely. Dry them with kitchen cloth so that no moisture is retained in the cubes. Heat oil in a deep frying pan and add a handful of cubes. Add 1/2 tbsp of salt water to the oil after reducing the flame to medium. Fry till the cubes become golden in colour. Turn them around occassionally. Drain from oil and spread on kitchen towel to remove excess oil. Fry the remaining cubes also in similar way in batches. Put the cubes in a mixing bowl and add chilly powder. (After tasting add a little more salt if needed).
