Once again, I went searching for a recipe I could use. Turns out this really awesome chic in the UK has a website where she posts recipes for many different Nigerian dishes. If you are interested in learning about cooking Nigerian dishes, go check out her website. She has very good and detailed instructions and she takes the best pictures when it comes to food preparations and the actual meal.
Anyways, here we go. I am practicing my photography skills and it was pretty gloomy outside on Monday morning so I had no natural light. When I tried to use the flash, it just came out all white.
Peel the yams. I used the tip of the peeler to take out any brown areas hence the craters you see.
Wash the yam and cut them into sticks.
Soak them in salt water (just add salt to cold water in a pot) for 4 - 6 hours. The instructions said to put it in the fridge but I didn't have the fridge space so I just left it in a slightly cool area.
Drain and then throw them in the deep fryer (or a frying pan). I heated my oil up to 360 degrees. Leave them in there for 15-minutes or until golden brown.
Hubby got me this deep fryer last year and I REALLY REALLY REALLY love using it. Unfortunately, I don't get to use it much so I am glad it came in handy for this. I plan on using it again for another snack food soon.
Put the yam fries on a brown paper lined pan. Salt and pepper if desired. Enjoy!
The beef stew:
This was very easy.
Jamaican curry powder
Packet of gravy mix to add some thickness
A little bit of water
|Just throw all ingredients in the crock pot and turn it on lo for 6-hours.|
