Yamarita for me is the highest form of enjoying yam. Its taste and feel is absolutely fantastic. it gives this heavenly sensation when having it as a meal especially with a very nice and delicious sauce preferably garnished with seafood. I recommend you try it especially as I have shared my experience of making it for a special sunday. Catch ya!!
Ingredients ( this is a guide only. Quantity is dependent on preference)
1 small tuber of yam
a tin of corned beef
1/2 kg of king prawns
half a cup of plain flour
-slice your yams in to shapes, depending on preference
-Rinse the slices of yam and place in a bowl, add some sugar (not compulsory) -Add some water, cover up and place in the refrigerator over night to soften and sweeten.
-On the next day parboil the yam with the same water as it was in the fridge
_once parboiled, drain and powder it in a pan with the plain flour,
heat up a pan or wok with sun flour oil ready to fry the yam
-Whisk 2 or 3 eggs in a bowl and place the powdered yam in the egg one at a time, roll over till the egg is all over the yam.
- once the oil is heated place the yam in the hot oil one at a time to fry.
-In about 4 mins it should be ready or better still when the yam turns golden.
-Remove the shell from your prawns, rinse and steam or stir fry in a wok (add spring onions peppers etc depending on preference)
-After about 5 to 10 mins or when the colour of the prawns changes you can set aside. if you are using ready cooked prawns you can skip this step.
-In a hot wok, add some sun flower oil, and stir fry your diced bell peppers, onions and scotch bonnets.
-Do this for about 10 mins and add your corned beef.
-Stir fry for another 3mins, then add your eggs depending on preference.
-To keep it nice you don’t need to whisk the eggs since you are stir frying.
-After 3 mins your egg scampi sauce is ready.
