Facts about elephant foot yam- So as I try to remind you of those mines which have almost disappeared from our kitchen. Whose nutrition is amazing but their taste is also fantastic. In this episode, I am discussing about ‘Suran’ or ‘Jimikand’ (elephant foot yam). This is a great vegetable option. It is included in traditional food in almost every region of India.
Facts about Origin:
Originally, Suran’s origin was believed to be India but in 2017, after the arrival of new scientific facts, the name of Island Southeast Asia came to the fore. Although it has been used in India for a long time. Even in Indian texts and Vedas, it is mentioned enough. Due to its medicinal properties, it has been used continuously.Also read: How do you like to eat onions? What do you know about these onion stories
Names are also fun:
Although Suran or Jimikand is used in every part of the country, but its names are completely different. In such a situation, if you have taken the name of your area to some other place, then perhaps no one will understand which vegetable you want to eat. It is called ol in Bengal, while Suran in UP and Gujarat, Jimikand in Chhattisgarh, Batema in Tripura and Chena in Southern India (Kerala).
Nothing ‘equal’ to it:
It is eaten in many ways. For example, by making roasted vegetable, by making chokha and also by making chutney and pickle. A special suran chutney made in Bihar is called ‘par’. This name is given because mango, ginger and suran are prepared by putting equal amounts in it.
Its benefits on your body:
It is a very nutritious vegetable. While it increases digestive power on one hand, it is also better for the health of skin. This is helpful for those who want to lose weight. Also, there are abundant vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in it, which protect people from many serious diseases. In North India, its demand increases greatly at the time of Deepawali.
So you too include Suran i.e. Jimikand in your lifestyle and take care of your health.
