  • To begin making the Kongunadu Style Senai Kilangu Masala Recipe, we will first pressure cook the yam with water, turmeric powder, salt for about 2 whistle.

  • Release the pressure naturally, and drain the excess water and keep the cooked yam aside.

  • Heat a flat skillet with oil, add curry leaves and allow it splutter for few seconds, add cinnamon stick, cloves and let it saute for few seconds.

  • Add dry red chillies, garlic, and ginger and saute until it softens. Later add poppy seeds and grated coconut and saute until they turn light brown.

  • Switch off the heat and allow it to cool down. Transfer it to a mixing jar and add little water and grind it into a smooth paste.

  • Heat the same pan again with oil, add mustard seeds and curry leaves and allow it splutter and crackle for few seconds.
