    DEar Sailaja,
    Follow the MW recipe - but steam it on the stove. Proceed in the same way.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Senai Kizangu (Yam) chips - a perfect combo for Bisibela!!

    For SBS photos, please goto
    Senai Kizangu (Yam) Chips

    Buy fresh senai, preferably yellow inside & not red. The variety called Malabar senai is very good. Keep immersed in water for an hour before cleaning, to get rid of all mud.
    Peel & cut into “logs” – 3-4” long & 2cm*2 cm.

    Slice them using a chips slicer.

    Wash 4,5 times in plenty of water, rinsing well. Drain completely & spread on a cloth under the fan for an hour.

    Heat oil in a kadai & fry 1 cup at a time like usual chips. Wait till the bubbles stop completely.

    After frying all batches, deep- fry a few red chillies, remove, add hing, salt, haldi to them & powder when still warm. Add to the chips & shake well to spread uniformly.

    Cool & store airtight.

    Banana Chips - less popular but more tasty than Potato Chips!

    Please go to
    Banana Chips
    * banana chips.jpg
    Follow the same method for deep frying like Senaikizangu Chips.


    Senaikizangu (Yam) Chips
    Select fully frown raw bananas.
    Wash the bananas, peel & keep immersed in water.
    Drain, wipe & slice on a plate.
    Transfer them to hot oil & proceed as above.


    Nenthrangai Chips:
    Peel and soak in plenty of water,to which haldi is added. After 1 hr, take them, wipe them & directly slice on to very hot oil. This has to be done very carefully & comes only by practice. Keep a little salt water ready. When the chips are half-fried, sprinkle salt water on to the oil (carefully) so thatsalt adheres to the chips. As you fry a few batches, decrease the amount of salt water because the oil would have become salty by now.

    Please go to
    Finger Chips
    for potato chips.

    Jain Cabbage Sabji - I learnt this from a Gujarathi friend.

    You have to try it to know how tasty, this seemingly simple dish is. Goes best with rotis, besides a dhal. This is an everyday dish,.
    Buy fresh, heavy cabbage. Shred thin in a slicer.
    Jain cabbage sabji - 1.jpg
    Chopped cabbage - 3 cups

    Tomatoes, chopped - 3 medium

    Green chillies, slit or chopped - 2-3

    Red chilli powder - 1 tsp

    Salt, sugar

    To temper:

    Oil - 1 tbsp

    Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

    Hing - ½ tsp

    To garnish - coriander leaves.

    Heat oil & temper as give.

    Add tomatoes & green chillies & sauté for 3-4 mts.

    Add cabbage, mix well & cover.

    Cook for just 4-5 mts & open.

    Add salt & sugar.

    Simmer for a few mts & remove.
