1 medium size tuber of yam
5 cups water
Cut yam into round circles, peel off skin of yam and cut into into four
Wash in cold to lukewarm water and put the washed yam in a large pot and
add enough water to cover the yam and cook until the yam is very soft.
Drain and pound smooth in a mortar with pestle, or put in food processor or
yam pounder one piece at a time until it forms a soft dough of pounded yam.
Alternatively, use motar and pestle. Add the pieces of yam gradually and
pound into a smooth paste. A few table spoons of hot water (one or two) may
be added to smoothen the paste.
Serve with any soup of your choice.
