To boil kūmara:
- Place kūmara in a saucepan and add sufficient lightly salted cold water to just cover.
- Place a lid on the saucepan and bring to the boil as quickly as possible, reduce heat and simmer gently.
- Cook for 18-20 minutes or until tender when tested with a skewer or tip of a knife.
- Add extra boiling water if necessary. Drain and serve.

Note: Always simmer vegetables as vigorous boiling will cause some vegetables to break up.
