Elephant Yam & Raw banana puttu Yam & Raw Banana Bhurji

Usually we prepare puttu in Raw banana. This time, I combined raw banana and elephant yam and made puttu as known as bhurji or Shredded raw banana and yam. With raw banana, i will prepare raw banana fry and koftha balls. Using elephant yam, i tried fried yam and i prepared in Kerala style fry called Elissery . This dish is liked very much by all of my family members.
For making this puttu, we need to boil yam and raw banana. As raw banana will cook quickly, 2-3 minutes of boiling is enough. But some of the yam would take more time to cook. If we take fresh yam, it will cook within 5 minutes. It is easy to prepare. We can make with one vegetable itself without combining.  Let us see how to prepare this interesting dish.
