Kaand nu Shaak (Pan-fried purple yam)

Dear Gujarati Food Made Easy lovers,

Before we launch into yet another delicious recipe, I would like to apologize for my long absence. I have singlehandedly been trying to transfer my blog to a new platform and having to learn the technicalities associated with this mammoth task has been an adventure to say the least!

I am yet to complete the transfer but as it has been so long since I posted a recipe, I could not leave you all any longer for the next one; it just would not be fair! So I will keep you all updated as I go along this long-winded journey! I have kindly received help from my fellow bloggers and good friends from university and from work respectively – please do check out their websites: and

Today, I am going to share with you the recipe for Kaand nu Shaak (pan-fried purple yam) in English. In essence the main ingredient here is a purple coloured root vegetable that is insanely delicious when made correctly! As expected, my first encounter with this delicious root vegetable (purple yam) was in my grandmother’s kitchen in Zambia.  Being known as one of the 2 best cooks in town (the other one being our next door neighbour), you can’t go wrong with this recipe. Kaand/purple yam can be bought at any local Indian grocery store – just ask the shopkeepers!

Here is a picture of the final result:
