Suran is called Elephant foot yam in English. It is also known as ‘Jimikand’.

Suran is allowed during the vrat or upwas. Apart from this, other root vegetables are allowed like sweet potato, arbi and the most popular potatoes.

This recipe is again my mom’s recipe. She makes many different suran recipes whether it is for fasting or not. From all the recipes, my favorites are this suran sabji. suran khichdi and suran chips. I will share the chips recipe soon.

Here in USA, i rarely get my hands on the fresh suran. But you can find frozen yam cubes very easily. But I don’t find the frozen one that flavorful. Whenever I see the fresh one in my nearby Indian grocery store, I must buy it. But I think it is easily available in India.

Another way of making suran ki sukhi sabji is same as this potato sukhi bhaji. Just replace the boiled potatoes with boiled suran.

Suran is the root vegetable which gives itchy feeling in your throat if it is not cooked properly. to avoid the itchiness, it needs any sour ingredient (anything khatta) in the dish. This can be yogurt or lemon juice or tamarind.

In this suran ki sabji, yogurt is added. It will help you avoid the itchy feeling in your throat after eating.

1) Peel the suran and cut into cubes. If not using right away then soak in the water. I have cut into ½ to ¾ inch cubes. While cutting and peeling the yam, many times it gives the irritation or itchy feeling to your hands, so grease your hands with oil and then continue.

2) Then take them into the pressure cooker, add enough water so they are submerged in the water. Cover with the lid, put the weight on and turn the heat on medium. Let it cook for 1 whistle only. I have cut into small cubes so one whistle was enough. So adjust the time accordingly. Drain the water and keep the boiled suran aside.

3) Heat the ghee in a pan on medium heat. Once hot add cumin seeds and let them sizzle.
