    First remove the skin of Yam/Kanda gadda and cut it into pieces. Now light the stove and put a vessel and add pieces of Yam/ Kanda Gadda in it, pour water till it is submerged, and cook on medium flame. (Alternatively, put pieces of Yam / Kanda Gadda in the cooker, pour a cup of water and keep it until it gets 2 whistles, then turn off the stove, remove the cooker and let it cool down). If it is cooked in a vessel directly on the stove, after 10 minutes of cooking, turn off the stove and keep the Vessel aside and let it cool down.
     
    When the kanda pieces / Yam Pieces are cooked well, add cold water and keep it for a while. The pieces are slightly firm and the piece does not crumble. Meanwhile, light the stove and heat a pan on medium flame. After heating, add oil to it and heat it. After the oil is heated, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and fry it. After roasting well, add finely chopped green chillies, finely chopped onion pieces and fry well.
     
    Now add salt, chilli, turmeric, garlic paste (or sprigs of garlic) and fry well. The garlic paste should be fried till raw smell goes away. Now add tomato slices or grind tomato and take out the pulp and fry it well. It is not mandatory to add tomato, but if we put it, the taste will be better. After the tomato cooks well and turns red, add amchoor and roasted cumin powder and mix well. Now add the pieces of Yam / kanda gadda and mix all the spices, salt and chilli powder well and fry the pieces well for 2 minutes.
     
    Now pour water in the curry and cook it well. The water will reduce and the curry will become a pulp. Meanwhile, add some jaggery and mix well till it dissolves. Jaggery dissolves quickly if we heat. 
     
    Now add curry leaves and cook it. After the water reduces and the curry thickens, add coriander leaves and mix it, turn off the stove and keep it aside. After that, the delicious Yam Curry / Elephant Yam Curry / Kanda Gadda curry is ready. Very tasty. Be sure to do it and tell me how it is.
