GSB Cuisine makes ample  use of it and we have several delicious recipes which have all been complied in this blog .

Method :-

Cut the yam into square 1/2 inch thick slices  , Place in a steamer and pressure cook for just one whistle , See that the pieces have just cooked but are still firm and not soft .
Take the salt , chilli powder & hing in a bowl and  mix well.
Coat the pieces with this mixture well
Add some oil on a hot  tawa and arrange  the pieces on it , let roast on low flame .
