Fried Yam


  • 1 white yam
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable Oil


  1. Peel and cut the yam tuber into 1 inch cylindrical discs. Make several cuts across the discs to get large chips. Wash the yam chips and place in a bowl.
  2. Add a little salt and toss the contents to distribute the salt.
  3. If you are using a deep fryer, pour enough vegetable oil into the fryer as per the instructions manual and preheat the oil to 170 ° C. You can also use a pot to fry the yam chips. It is preferable to use a pot rather than a frying pan for this fried yam recipe because pots provide more depth for the frying process.
  4. When the oil is heated, add a few yam chips, leaving enough room for flipping the chips.
  5. Stir the chips till they have turned golden.
  6. Remove the chips and place in paper towels to absorb the oil.
