Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Yogurt - 1/2 cup (beaten)
Tomato - 1 (pureed)
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilly Powder - 1 tsp

Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Dry Red Chillies -  2

1. Heat oil in a pan/pressure cooker. Add the dry red chillies and splutter the cumin seeds.

3. Add the ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute.
4. Next add the yam pieces.
