Suran jo Paneer Lage ! : Recipe

When you look at this picture, it may come across as Paneer but when you look closely, you will realize, this is nothing but humble Suran ( Elephant's Foot / Yam ) This is a recipe that uses rich tomato based gravy without any cream.

Try it :)

  • Take about 500 grams suran and boil it for a couple of minutes.

  • Then cut it into medium sized pieces. Don’t cut too small pieces.

  • Pat dry these pieces and later deep fry suran.

  • In a deep pan, heat 1 tbs oil. Once heated, add about 6-7 garlic cloves and half an inch ginger, roughly sliced.

  • Into this add 2 green chilles slit, 1 onion, 3 tomatoes roughly sliced. Sprinkle some salt and cook this for good ten to fifteen mins on a medium flame.

  • Then turn off the flame and let this cool down.

  • Once cooled, blend in into a smooth paste.

  • Now in the same pan, heat 1 tbs oil and once heated add 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped and 1 tsp jeera. Let it splutter. Into this add the paste we had made of tomatoes.

  • Also add below spices

  • 1ts Kashmiri red chili powder,1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp jeera powder and salt as per taste.

Let this cook for next 10 mins minimum till the spices are roasted properly. This will start releasing oil and develop a beautiful color.

Now into this add half a cup curd.

Once again, we cook this for minimum 10 mins. It will thicken.

  • Now add about 1.5 cup water into this. Mix it well and add fried Suran that we had kept aside.

  • Let this cook for 5 mins on a medium flame.

  • As we had already boiled and fried suran, this shall not take more time.

  • Adjust the consistency and turn off the flame.

  • Serve it with hot chapatis or butter rotis.
