Recipe 5: Suranache kaap (Yam)
Contributed by Rujuta Diwekar
Have added this so that husbands can contribute in the kitchen. The wife is not going to feel like a full-fledged meal, so she can eat this instead of nothing or just the ‘kaap’ instead of sabzi with either dahi-rice or just rice.
Suranache kaap (yam is called suran in Marathi) is a great starter by itself. It is traditionally served as an accompaniment with a hot meal of dal-chawal.
1. Roughly cut the outer skin of the yam with a sharp knife.
2. Chop the yam in big chunks / blocks.
3. Pressure cook the yam blocks and then allow to cool completely.
4. Slice the yam into V inch-thick long pieces. .
5. Shallow fry in oil on a cast-iron tava till the yam slices turn crispy on both sides.
6. Season with salt and red chilli powder.
7. Serve hot.
You can make ‘kaap’ with raw bananas and potatoes too. For these three, skip the pressure cooking step. You need to marinate the sliced vegetable with salt, turmeric and red chilli powder half an hour beforehand. Coat the sliced vegetables with rava (semolina) or rice flour before shallow frying.
