Usually I am making Yam dishes at the time of Onam which is very important and popular festival in Kerala. Yam will be available at that time in both houses and shops. We can make a lot of variety dishes by using Yam and every dish are very tasty. Today I made Easy and Spicy Yam Masala Stir Fry by using natural Yam which was there in my home. I like masala stir fry dishes very much so I am trying to make different types masala stir fry by using different vegetable and this dish is one taste dish among them. This is looking attractive and taste also is really good. We can make this type of dish with Colocasia and Potato. This is little bit spicy dish and you can add your own ingredients for making masala based on your taste. I like to add Pepper Powder taste very much so here I used Black Pepper Powder here. I made it by mixing both Red Chilli Powder and Black Pepper Powder. Fennel Seeds Powder gives a good smell and flavour to this dish. We can make it very easy with limited ingredients and time. It also has the flavour of Garlic and it is an excellent combination with hot plain Rice for lunch. Totally it is a very good tasty vegetable dish.
