For all those who must be wondering what "kand" must be, it is actually a part of the yam family. It is also called "purple yam" and is available abundantly during the winter. I actually bought some to make "Oondhiya" for my family, but since there was much more than I needed, I just deep fried cubes of kand and tossed the pieces in some fresh mint leaves and poppy seeds. What I had was a really tasty chaat recipe which I would like to share with everybody.
