In a pan add little oil and fry above ingredients together till they are golden brown. Cool. Grind to a paste.

Heat 2 tbps of oil in a pan. Add the ground masala, salt to taste ( adjust since we already added to the yam). And little of the liquid. Keep stirring till it cooks and become semi dry. Now add the cooked yam and mix well. Allow it to get dry. This is a spicy side dish. You can make with any yam.
