I have gone through Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe of Yam curry & cooked with a few twist

Yam:500 grams ...

Peel and cut the yam into one inch cubes.

Wash them well.

Heat oil in a pan, add 1/2 tsp of mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves.

When the seeds begin to splutter add yam pieces, salt and toss.

Add one cup of water, cover and cook on medium heat till almost done.

Add green chilies

Dilute the tamarind pulp and jaggery & coconut milk in a cup of water and mix.

Lower the heat, cover and cook till the yam is completely cooked & gravy becomes thick.
