Fresh Yam (Elephant Foot), 1-1.2 kg (approx)

It is a tropical tuber crop that has been in cultivation throughout tropical Asia for centuries. Yam is a starchy tuber vegetable which is likely broadly all over India as well as in many parts of the world.


Yam is consumed as in stir fries, curries as well as in making crispy wafers. Chettinad style Senai is a popular home style dish in Southern India. This plant is given its name because it is quite large and resembles the foot of an elephant. Much of the elephant foot yam can be eaten. When the leaves of the plant wither and die, the corm, or tuber, can be dug up and eaten. Usually it is cooked and eaten as a vegetable, and in many places it is smashed with salt and eaten with rice.

Yam is known as Elephant Foot in English due to its shape. Also it is known as Khamalu, Suran, or Chupri Alu in northern and Central India. Yam is known as Karunai Kizhangu in Tamil, Kaachil or Kavuttu in Malyalam, Suvarna Gadde in Kannada and Ganisi Gadda in Telugu.
