Pounded yam lovers... so I was thinking if unripe plantain swallow could be made this way, then yam could also be made likewise. Though I was having second thoughts but then, I saw a video online where someone made it and I was like shwoo!!! someone is thinking same line and I got the courage to go ahead and try it. But I must say, I observed this method makes the texture feel more like fresh semo, the pounded yam addicts will surely notice some difference in texture.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Tuber yam (for pounded yam)

Directions

Step 1
Peel, wash and cut yam in small bits then pour in a blender with little water and blend until you get a thick smooth paste.
Step 2
Pour the yam paste into a pot and start stirring continiously on very low heat. (make sure the heat is very low as you stir so it gives the yam time to cook while stirring).
Step 3
keep stirring and turning until it all comes together and forms a huge mass

  1. Exactly what happened in my own case too, and I had to check online to be sure someone else had tried it and got this type of result. The yam was white before pouring it into the blender, but it came out brownish black after blending. I wish someone who had really tried it and got a positive result will come here to comment.
