The first thought that comes in my mind on mentioning the word Koorkka, also known as Chinese Potatoes, is my childhood. This tuber was cultivated in the backyard of my Dad's house. This tuber has a distinct fragrance and supposedly has medicinal values. Once the yield is taken, Koorkka was prepared
Another Tip For Cleaning : Wash the Chinese potatoes till all the mud is gone and put it in a cooker. Add water and wait for 1 or 2 whistles depending on the size of the koorka. The skin comes out very easily.
