Hello there !! I'm glad you found my blog :-). I'm Nithya & my very close friends call me Nithu. I started this blog back in 2007, when my daughter Divya was born & I christened it " Divya KuttyzKitchen". I'm blessed with a handsome little guy too. My precious two kept me busy for quite these years, its Feb 2014 and I realized my blog needed some serious uplift, So here I am back to blogging. I use my iPhone for clickin & uploadin the pictures in my blog.I know its needs improvement. Let's just say, I'm just happy the way they are for now & when I do find time, I might improve on it. I also own an Etsy store, where I sell my handmade Soap bars, Cupcake soaps, Body butter, Body scrub, Lip balms & more... I plan on adding a few more Categories to my blog like Kiddie food, Travel, Soap making, Crafts etc..

  1. CHENAKILANGU / YAM - 5 (Slit lengthwise) Pressure cook in cooker for 1 whistle..then immedietly release the pressure and throw the yams in a bowl of cold water..

  2. (if u forget to do this..then start again from step 1..since u dont get a crisp fry..if the yam is overdone)

  3. Chilli powder - 1.5 spoon

  4. Garam Masala- 1/4 spoon

  5. Turmeric Powder - 1/4 Spoon

  6. Salt - taste

  7. Oil - 5 spoons for Frying


  1. Once the yams are out of the Cooker..They go rolling into a bowl of cold water

  2. Remove the skin

  3. Now add the skinned yams to a huge bowl..now add the chilli powder,garam masala, turmeric powder, salt and mix well..

  4. Take care not to break the long Yam..

  5. Leave it in the refridgerator..till the pan is ready

  6. Heat the pan and add 4 spoons of oil and allow it to become warm..

  7. When the pan is warm enough..add the yams making sure they dont stick to each other

  8. Turn the yams over to allow them to be golden brown on each sides..

  9. Keep pouring 2 spoons of oil in the pan as the pan starts to lose oil..

  10. Fry it just like how like how u fry a fish...

  11. 10 Min snack...that goes well with Sambar...Simple still..just curd Rice :)

I've attached a pic of Yam..


The Same recipe can be repeated for Potato, Elephant Yam..also

Just make sure the yam stays in the cooker for just 1 whistle..

If u have any leftover unfried yam..just leave them in the fridge..and it can be fried the next day for a even more crispier and tastier snack...
