Kanda Attu/Yam Dosa

imageKanda Attu/Yam Dosa

Kanda Attu is vegetarian/vegan omelette,no doubt about it. There are so many traditional recipes which are not preparing these busy days. This recipe is also one among them. Almost traditional recipes are on the verge of extinction. I am putting small effort through the blog to remember and create awareness about traditional recipes inherited from grandmothers. The kanda Attu is prepared with just minimal ingredients to relish. The raw yam is chopped, ground along with ginger and green chillies. The batter is poured into thick dosas to get kanda atlu. They are very tasty with hot steamed rice. The Kanda Attu I’ve prepared is authentic Andhra style recipe. There are variations to make them. One can add rice flour or chopped onions while preparing dosas. But I’ve made them with yam only. The addition of ginger aids good digestion and enhances the taste.Here I present yummilicious yam dosa(Kanda Attu) to serve along with hot steamed rice and melted ghee. Njoy Cooking,Serving n Savoring!


Elephant foot yam: 250 gms

Salt: As required

Water: required amount for grinding

Ginger: one inch piece

Green chillies: 2 nos.

Coriander leaves: Few

Turmeric: A pinch

Method of preparation:

1. Take yam and keep it in water for some time so that it’s easy to clean all the dirt present in it.imageimage

2. Peel the skin of the yam and immerse in water because it changes colour.image

3. Now chop the yam into tiny pieces.image

4. Now take a mixer grinder, put chopped yam, green chillies, required amount of salt and chopped ginger.image

5. Grind them together to form a smooth and fine paste. Add half cup of water. The batter approximately yields 8 yam dosas.image

6. Transfer the batter onto a bowl. The consistency of the batter should be like dosa batter.image

7. Now heat tawa, pour the batter and spread the batter quickly with ladle to get thick dosas. Drizzle oil onto it.image

8. Cook the yam dosa on low flame. Keep the lid. The dosas take more time to fry approximately 10 minutes for each dosa. Flip the dosa other side.imageimage

9. Fry the other dosas on both sides similarly. Chopped coriander leaves  can be added.imageimage

10. Now the delicious and attractive kanda attus are ready to serve hot with rice.image

11. The kanda Attu is served for lunch along with simple fry and sambar.image



Some people get itching while chopping the yam, so grease palms with oil before chopping.
