A mixture of yam and besan perked up with peanuts, red chillies and onions is used to make scrumptious pakodas, which have a unique crunch brought about by the yam.

A teaspoon of fennel seeds along with coriander and curry leaves give the Yam Fritters a lip-smacking flavour and tantalising aroma. Just ensure that you make the pakodas as soon as you mix the ingredients, as the batter tends to get watery if left for long. The Suran Pakoda is perfect to serve as a tea-time snack .
