  • cook chopped yam with turmeric and salt and just enough water to 2 whistles. open after pressure settles and check if it gets easily mashed but stays in shape. discard the water as it causes itching to many. kootu curry recipe
Do not cook it fully because we need to mix both and cook again. Yam will get mashed if cooked fully.
Cook chopped raw banana with salt, turmeric and just enough water in a vessel for 5- 10 minutes. I have used the water used for cooking chickpeas to cook the raw banana.
