Pulusu is a popular preparation style in Andhra cooking, and basically features greens, vegetables or other ingredients in a tamarind-based gravy. A remarkable flavour derived from minimal ingredients and a simple procedure makes the Yam and Spinach Pulusu a great hit with everybody. The pulusu gets a flavourful boost from a simple masala powder of mustard seeds and red chillies, which also contains a bit of rice to thicken the gravy quickly.

The subzi looks like potato and spinach but its actually the yam. And it is as delicious as the aloo palak subzi. the different type of masala blended for this subzi givesa great spiciness and strong masaledaar flavour.
