Jicama is a type of yam that is quite gorgeous. It is also called Mexican Yam and is delightful and refreshing when raw – not unlike an apple in texture and flavour.
Just occasionally available in our Central Market, we grab them when we can. The shape is always intriguing. This evening there were Parsi Crudites with salt and spices, featuring Jicama, Green Mango and other vegetables with Celtic Sea Salt, Chilli Powder, Chaat Masala and my Kitchen Bench Podi – mainly home grown curry leaves and chillies at the moment.
