suran chips recipe with step by step photos – suran also known as elephant foot yam is a tuber easily found in india.

i am not sure about other indian cuisines but it is commonly used in the kerala cuisine. suran was a regular in my house and i would love this veggie in the form of stir fries, in curry dishes and also as chips.

i have introduced elephant foot yam to a few folks including the hubby who had never had it before and they all loved it. so when you get your hands on elephant foot yam, do try these tuber veggie.

a few health benefits of elephant foot yam (suran):

  • high in fibre and in omega 3 fatty acids.
  • low glycemic index – hence good for people suffering from diabetes.
  • cools the body.

this is my mom’s way of making the chips. its a good side veggie dish with a dal rice combo or sambar rice or rasam rice combo. other recipes i make from yam is suran vada and yam fry recipe. you can also check these baked potato chips, banana chips and sun dried potato chips recipe.

peeling and cutting the yam can be a little problematic. you need a sharp and heavy knife to cut the whole yam. so be careful when you are doing it. better to get a halved or quartered yam from the vegetable vendor.

secondly your hands may get itchy while cutting the yam. to avoid this, apply some oil to your hands whilst chopping the yam. a souring agent like tamarind or lemon is added to the yam to reduce the itchiness. for this recipe we have always used lemon juice.

this is a simple and an easy suran chips recipe which has only 4 ingredients in it, except yam – turmeric, red chili powder, lemon juice and salt.

for a variation and to give a garlicky touch, i added some leftover red garlic chutney from the previous day’s dabeli. but this is not essential. the chips taste excellent with the 4 ingredients.
