Yam (Kanda)

Yam can cause itching while being cleaned and cut. Rubbing some oil onto the hands before handling yam will prevent this happening.

When boiling yam, take enough water in a vessel so that the yam pieces are submerged. Cook on high flame. This will prevent the pieces from breaking up and disintegrating.

Pulusu (Sour Gravy):

Let the gravy boil slowly and steadily. The flavors will emerge perfectly in this way.


If you wish to balance the sour and spicy tastes well, add some jaggery. You may skip jaggery if you do not like it.

Some options:

You may substitute Yam with another vegetable like boiled potato, raw banana or Colocasia to make this Pulusu
