Senaikizhangu Roast - Elephant Foot Yam Roast

Senaikizhangu Roast - Elephant Foot Yam Roast, this roast is my husband's favourite. He like the tangy taste in Yam. If yam is not cooked properly, we might get an itchy feeling in our tongue and throat. If you cook it in tamarind extract, you will not get that itchiness while eating. This roast is very simple and easy to make. Kids will definitely like it. Try this!
