Elephant Foot Yam Fritters Recipe -- Kanda Garelu Recipe -- How to make Kanda Vadalu Recipe


Hi Good Morning,

Today I will post here how to make elephant foot yam fritters or kanda garelu. It is another traditional dish among my family circles. It is often served as a side dish with rice. It substitutes curry. But we can have it like a snack also. Today I made it as an evening snack to my kids, served it with tomato sauce.
Kanda Garelu
I took the recipe from my mother's elder sister, doddamma. When I was very young she prepared this for me. I still remember that taste. Whenever I met her in any gathering, recollect those memories. We get very rarely this vegetable here in the local market. Whenever I get it,use some portion of it for making curry with bachali kura and some portion for stir fry it. And part of it I use it for making garelu.
These are made in two ways, one is soak toor dal and chana dal along with yam, grind it to a paste and make garelu. Another is instant variety, grind yam alone and add rice flour to it and all the spices to it and make garelu.
Today I am posting the first way of making it, as it is the most liked by one and all.
