This root vegetable derived this name because it very much resembles an elephant's foot.For some people, if they touch this vegetable, itching occurs.It is allergic to some too.But it is very good to cure hypertension and stress. It is also a natural remedy meant to cure constipation, it helps the problems caused by menopause, and also after child birth, helps the uterus to come back to normalcy soon. For ladies, this vegetable is a must to be added in diet.
Since it’s skin has lot of mud, it’s better to wash after chopping fine.

Senai / Yam - very finely chopped - 6 cups
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Curry leaves - handful

For Seasoning
Cooking oil - 5 tbsps
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Recipe Category: Dry Curry/Lunch
Prep time: 15 mts; Cooking time: 30 mts

Serves 4

In a pan, add cooking oil, add the seasoning ingredients

                                Then add the chopped, washed and cleaned Senai, with chilli powder, salt and                                       curry leaves.

                                 Keep on slow fire, and roast evenly. Now it is half done

                                                       Getting roasted beautifully

                                    Done! Enjoy with hot rice, kuzhambu or rasam. This is a fantastic combination                                     for any kind of koottu also.

Some people add tamarind juice, but I don't like it, and don't do it too. I feel, it makes the Senai soggy, and prevents it from getting crunchy and crispy.
