I would like to share a very tasty vegetarian dish through this article today. I like to have both vegetarian dishes and non-vegetarian dishes very much but we all will have some favourite or special dishes and Yam stir fry is my favourite dish among them. I have been using Yam dishes since my childhood because it doesn't have creamy effects so it will not overcook while cooking it so it is suitable to make stir fry. We can get a variety and special feelings while we eat Yam dishes because it has a crispy feeling. Yam is a fat less vegetable and everyone can use it without any fear. In Kerala, Yam is cultivating for both income and homely needs. Yam is available in round shape and its inside will have light brown colour. Yam is the special and main vegetable for Onam celebration. I bought Yam from outside to make this stir fry today. It is my own recipe and I used the ingredients which I like but it is really tasty. This is super combination with Rice, Chapati and Dosa but my favourite combination is with Rice. It is little bit spicy dish and has the flavour of Garam masala powder and cumin seeds powder.

This is the famous dish for different celebrations or festivals such as Christmas, Easter, birthdays, weddings or any other special celebrations.

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry. I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes.

It will be a special and variety item to everyone. Its tasty is very nice and different from other fish curries. We need not to add chilli powder to make this and also we need to fry the fish before making this curry. Mainly it is preparing by Christians or in Christian houses.
