Tangy South Indian Chicken
Jerusalem artichokes are part of the sunflower family and are sometimes called sunroot or earth apples, because they are the tubers of the plant and grow underground. They are completely different from globe artichokes, which come from the thistle family.
Jerusalem artichokes can be used in many different ways but in general they're used in the same way as potatoes. They have a crunchy texture similar to water chestnuts with a slightly nutty flavour and can also be used raw in salads.
With this recipe I like to keep the masala dry and pungent to infuse lots of spice into the dish while keeping it light on calories. It's important to use cumin and the asafoetida not only for flavour but also to balance the digestive properties of this vegetable. This is a wonderful alternative to a side of Bombay potatoes. Try something different!
