Suran (yam) is a popular winter season vegetable. It has several health benefits, including lots of gut-friendly bacteria that can promote healthy digestion.
This suran ki sabzi (yam curry) is very yummy and easy to prepare. Pair it with any Indian bread like roti or paratha. Do try it and share your experience.
