Maragenasu Palya / Yucca Subji


1 Small Maragenasu / Yucca / 2 cups of chopped Yucca

Pinch Of Turmeric powder

1/4 - 1/2 tsp Chilly Powder

Large grape sized Jaggery 

Salt to taste

3 - 4 tsp grated Coconut

1 - 2 strands of Curry leaves

1 tsp Black Gram seeds

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds

2 tsp Oil


Remove outer cover of yucca, wash it and chop it into small thin pieces as shown in the picture below. Remove the innermost hard part if any.

Put chopped Yucca, turmeric powder, chilly powder, salt, jaggery, around 1 cup of water in a pressure cooker and cook. (3-4 whistles). Once the pressure goes off, keep the Palya in medium flame and stir it once in every 2-3 mins. Once the water is almost dried, add grated coconut and keep the Palya in low flame for about 2-3 mins.

Add black gram seeds, mustard seeds and oil in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and put it on Palya. Mix it and serve hot. It goes well with rice.
