INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Tuber of Yam
  • Table Salt
  • Vegetable Oil

PROCEDURE:

  1. Cut the yam into small sizes (based on your preference) and place it in a large bowl
  2. Wash the yam well with warm water a few times and set aside
  3. Add salt (to taste) and add cold water to the yam, making sure that all of it is fully submerged in the salty water
  4. Allow the yam to soak for a few minutes
  5. Place a deep frying pan on medium to high heat and pour around 2 ½ to 3 cups of vegetable oil into the frying pan
  6. Once the oil is hot, add a few pieces of yam to the hot oil and allow it to fry until nice and crispy, about 10 minutes
  7. Once it is properly fried, in a separate bowl, place a few paper towels inside the bowl and transfer the hot pieces of yam into the bowl
  8. Repeat the above steps until you have fried all of the pieces of yam
  9. Serve the fried yams with Baked Tilapia, Meko (Hot Red Pepper), and Shito (Spicy Black Sauce).
  10. Enjoy your meal!

Tip: If you want the crunchy, roadside fried yam taste, sprinkle a bit of cold water in the oil once it is hot.
