There are some dishes tagged as week end ones. May be they are time consuming involving complex processes or simply because they are supposed to be relished at pace without any hurry. The whole family gathered around the table chit chatting happily and enjoying mouthful of favourites at leisure. That's a real bliss. At weekends, we always have brunch. Actually my grandparents have brunch everyday around ten ish and a light evening tiffin (snacks) around three. This is a typical routine in most of the Tambrahm house. Eventually these customs changed and got adapted according to one's convenience.
But we stuck to the lineage routines in week ends. An elaborate meal including everyone's favourite was made. This recipe here is a week end special. Since we are all rice lovers, apart from the regular kuzhambu, we have these thogayal, kootu and masiyal. Masiyal is something that is smashed until smooth and velvety, enjoyed with steaming rice. The most important ingredient is the lemon or tamarind that imparts a tangy flavour that should pucker our mouth at each bite.
This recipe is for letter "Y" under "Regional" theme. Check out other BM #32 Marathon runners' posts here in this page.

Looks yum. Will get the yam soon to make this delightful masiyal.
Rajani S says
I have never come across yam masial as such, but if you overcook yam (be it for erisseri or koottu curry), the texture will end up like a masial! I think this curry will go so well with hot rice!
Pavani N says
Yummy looking yam curry. I was thinking of Andhra dishes to make with yam for Y, but couldn't find anything that was special to Andhra.
Chef Mireille says
