Chena /Yam Mezhukupuratti

One of the common mezhupuratis in our house....and we all love it.


Chena / Yam - 2 cups (cleaned and cut into thin slices - the size of french fries)
Small onions - 6-7
Garlic - 4, big cloves
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp (as per tolerance)
Salt - as per taste
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Coconut oil - 1 tbsp


Boil the yam slices in enough water with little salt and turmeric powder. Once properly cooked, take it off the stove and drain off enough water. Keep it aside.
Crush small onions and garlic using mortar and pestle.
Heat a kadai and add oil. Once hot, add crushed ingredients along with curry leaves and saute till they are almost crisp. Add chilly powder and saute till raw smell is gone. Now add the cooked yam and gently mix everything together. Let it be on heat for atleast couple of minutes. Once the mixture is dry, take it off the stove.
