suran fry recipe with step by step pics – tasty and crispy elephant foot yam fry made with minimal ingredients. these are also known as suran phodi.

suran fry recipe

in konkani language phodi are vegetable fritters. here the veggies are sliced and then marinated with spices, later to be coated with rava (sooji or cream of wheat) and then shallow or deep fried. i make phodis at times to go as a side dish with a main course of dal-rice or sambar-rice or usal-rice or kadhi-rice. i prepare phodis with veggies like raw banana (plantain), baingan (aubergines), okra (bhindi) and colocasia (arbi).

some people might have a lot of itching in hands after peeling and slicing suran. so in this case, apply some coconut oil on your palms and then peel-chop suran. you can also apply some lemon juice or tamarind pulp.

at times even after eating, itchiness and irritation can be felt on the tongue and throat. so here some souring agent has to be added in the marination. i usually add lemon juice or vinegar. you can also use tamarind pulp or kokum extract.

i usually buy fresh suran and then do take the effort of peeling and chopping it. but in this recipe you can also use frozen suran. making this crispy suran rava fry is easy and it goes very well as a side dish. though you can also serve yam fry as a snack. few more suran recipes which i make at times are:
