Japanese Yam Recipe - yamaimo fry recipe - Simple poriyal recipe



I got introduced to this yam by my veg seller. She told me it is good for bone and we can just grate it and cook with rice. But I use this in similar way how we use our senai kilangu or elephant foot yam. yamaimo = Japanese mountain yam.  This yam is really sticky and I wash couple of times before using it.  
Ingredients

yamaimo  - 2 cups (when we cut into 1/4 inch cubes)
