Gundruk (Shinki)-Tarul (Yam) ko Tarkari :)

Today I made my favorite Gundruk again! My sister recently visited Nepal and my mom had packed me some. I love Gundruk two ways, one is achar (Click for Gundruk and Bhatmas Sadeko Recipe) form of it and another is the one on which I am writing this post. There are several ways to make Gundruk Curry but the way I prefer is to incorporate Tarul (Yam) instead of potato. Also, I love the gravy texture Yam gives to this dish :) Here you go guys, enjoy  Nepali Tummy way of make Gundruk and Tarul ko Tarkari :)
