If I ask my husband during weekend "What do you want me to cook for today ? ", He will be very happy to tell me a menu  which includes "Tambli" for sure :-) . End of the day we all  like delicious home food makes us feel complete. Isn't it ? I have many other Tambli recipes in my regular menu list. They are Shunti Tambli, TomatoTambli , Menthe tambli , Palak tambli , Jack Fruit Seed Tambli etc..etc
Today I will share one another easy Tambli using yam which I learnt from my neighbor aunty during my stay in Krishna Nagar Apartments Bangalore.Like other Tamblis,  this is also prepared using coconut and curd. Serve this mild yogurt based dish with warm rice. Please don't forget to get back to me with your comments if you try this recipe.





Serves 2-3 

Ingredients:
1/2 - 3/4 cup of cleaned chopped Yam cubes
salt to taste
1-2 cups of yogurt
2-3 tbsp of fresh grated coconut/coconut flakes
1 green chilly ( you can increase if you want spicy tambuli )

for seasoning:
1 tsp musatd seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal

1/2 tsp of jeera/cumin seeds
1 red dry chilly , chopped into halves
1-2 tsp of cooking oil/preferably coconut oil
6-8 curry leaves


How To Prepare?
  • Wash and boil the Yam till they become soft. I usually pressure cook them.
  • Take out the boiled yam cubes and let it cool. Once it is cool, Transfer them to a mixer jar.Add green chilly, coconut and salt into it . Grind all the ingredients into a smooth /coarse paste.Now Add yogurt to it and grind all together till it becomes fine paste.Pour this tambuli into a serving bowl.
     
                              

  • Prepare the seasoning in separate pan. Heat oil in  a pan. Add urad dal , mustard seeds and red chilly to it . Fry till mustard seed pops out . Now add cumin seeds and curry leaves .Fry for few secs and add on top of the tambuli. Give a nice stir before you serve. This goes well with warm rice.



Tips/Notes:

  • You can add more curd if you like. Don't use very sour curd.
  • You can add turmeric while boiling Yam.
