How to peel and clean suran /jimikand/Elephant foot yam?

Always apply oil on your hands before you touch the suran/yam as it causes itching.

Or always wear gloves before working on suran. Clean and scrape the suran under running water.

After chopping the suran soak it in water with some salt or else it will get discolored and turn dark due to oxidation.

Either boil or deep fry suran before using it in any preparation. Using raw suran is not advisable as it gives you itchy throat, same as like hands while cutting and chopping this vegetable.

Suran ki sabzi, my way

I have come across so many recipes using curd or yogurt in making suran ki sabzi. However we Sindhi’s use onion – tomato based semi solid gravy, that is known as Seyal Suran.

This preparation requires very less amount of water, while cooking suran, as suran is either deep fried or boiled first and then added to onion tomato gravy.
