Chenna Cheera Thoran (yam And Red Spinach Stir Fry)
We as Keralites adore yam as a vegetable. We even make a pudding out of yam which is considered a special offering in some temples. In curries there are specific recipes for this vegetable like a kootu curry, chenna theeyal or a stir fry. This tuber is very sensitive to seasons and if not handled properly can cause skin irritations to the one cleaning it. Also in some seasons it causes itching in throat if you consume this yam. But its known for its meaty texture is delicious when paired with greens like the red amaranthus in this recipe.
