Yamarita fries recipe (coated yam)

Yamarita fries recipe (coated yam) is what I will be sharing with you today.

Still on yam recipe matter! In my previous post,  I said to get the feel of the sweetness of yam is between the month of Feburary-June because almost the water in yam has dried up.

Enjoying more of yams this season where almost all yams you get in the market are sweet is worth it.

You could prepare and twist it in whatever way. You can enjoy your yams, with vegetable sauce, egg sauce, porridge, raw fresh palm oil as in the previous post, pepper soup, fried, as well as the yamarita fries recipe (coated yam) we have on ground.

The first time I tasted this recipe, I was like wow! So there’s something more to fried yam?

I love fried yams but yamarita is kind of taking it a step further to another level of super taste, lol!
