3/4 Kg (5 cups chopped) Purple (White) Yam or Dioscorea Alata  |  ತುಪ್ಪ ಗೆಣಸು (ಅಡ್ಡತಾಳಿ, ಉಪ್ಪ ಕಿರೆಂಗು, ತೂಣ ಗೆಣಸು)

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder  |  ಅರಶಿನ ಹುಡಿ

Remove the outer skin of Purple Yam and chop them into medium sized thin pieces as shown in the picture below. Wash the chopped Yam 5-6 times in water until the stickiness goes off.

Put the chopped Yam in a pressure cooker. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, salt, around 2 cups of water and cook them well(5-6 whistles). 

Once the pressure goes off, keep the Palya in medium flame.(Adjust the consistency by adding required amount of hot water) Once the water content is almost dried, add grated coconut and keep the Palya in low flame for about 2-3 mins.

Put black gram seeds, mustard seeds, broken red chillies, oil in a pan and heat. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to Palya. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice | Chapathi.

Tips (ಸಲಹೆ): 
 * Tastes great when it is served hot. Once it cools, the Subji becomes thick
 * Be careful while cutting the Yam as it is very sticky. It easily slips away from the hand
 * Upper part of the root can be used for planting
 * ಬಿಸಿಯಾದ ಪಲ್ಯ ತಿನ್ನಲು ರುಚಿ. ತಣ್ಣಗಾದಾಗ ಗಟ್ಟಿಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ
 * ಗಡ್ಡೆಯು ಕೈಯಿಂದ ಜಾರುವುದರಿಂದ, ಹೆಚ್ಚುವಾಗ ಜಾಗ್ರತೆ ವಹಿಸಬೇಕು
 * ಗಡ್ಡೆಯ ತುದಿಯ ಭಾಗವನ್ನು ನೆಡಲು ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಬಹುದು
