Roasted Curried Yam
Yams are edible root vegetables that are originated in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. It is often mistaken for sweet potatoes. But the yam is sweet and starchier. Yams are packed with vitamins, minerals, and good fiber. It is called Suran in Hindi. It is a very tough vegetable to cut.
A yam can be curried, fried, or stewed with other ingredients to make a vegetable. I decided to a roasted curried yam, the seasoning is smoky and savory and so delicious. It is easy to cook up in 30 minutes.
2 medium-sized Yams
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp tomato ketchup
½ tsp pepper

Salt to taste
juice of half a lime
1 tsp chopped coriander leaves for garnish.
1. Wash the yam thoroughly, peel, and chop them into cubes.
2. Now apply one tablespoon oil, curry powder, salt, and turmeric and rub it in the yam.
