Suran vada recipe with step by step photos – no onion no garlic patties or cutlets made with yam and spices.

suran vada

I had made these yam patties some time back. Just that I did not get time to add the recipe then. Hence posting now.

These suran patties are very easy to make. they are crisp with a soft texture from inside. The only time taking part is chopping the suran or yam. Do peel and chop the suran carefully. You can also apply some oil to your palms while chopping yam, so that your hands do not feel itchy, after chopping.

The recipe has lemon juice as a souring agent, which reduces the itchiness. Though you can even use ½ tsp tamarind pulp instead of lemon juice.

Serve these suran vadas with tomato ketchup or tamarind chutney or coriander chutney.

  2. Hi dassana,
    Love these vadas.My mom and mil makes these but in a different way.we call it kanda in Telugu.it is washed three or four times .and then ground and lil rice flour is added for holding and then deep fry like vadas.and we also make dosas with the ground suran. They are very tasty. Suran is actually very good for women.5 stars

    1. thanks lavanya for sharing the andhra version. i should try soon. i have never heard about dosas with ground suran. like you mention, it must be very tasty.

      1. Yes they are very tasty.you can add soaked moong dal or chana dal along with suran and add redchilles and grind ,add salt and jeera ,then make like adai.you could do it without any dals also .my mom doesn’t add any dal but either ways its good
