300g White Yam
2 Eggs
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Curry Powder
1/4 Tsp White Pepper
1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 Tsp Dried Thyme
1 Stock Cube
1 Tsp Salt
Oil for Frying



  1. Cut the yam into your desired shape or size and put in a pot, cover with water, add a little salt then cook till its soft.
  2. Season the egg with some stock cubes, white pepper, garlic and thyme, whisk the ingredients into the egg then transfer it to a wide bowl to make the coating process easier.
  3. Add some salt, curry powder and garlic powder into the flour, then transfer it into a Ziplock (Its easier for me that way).
  4. Take a piece of yam and dip into the eggs, make sure it properly coated, then put the egg coated yam into flour and coat with flour. Continue this process till all pieces of yam are properly coated
  5. Put some oil in a pan (enough to deep fry the yam), allow to heat up.
  6. Before you start frying, coat them one more time in the eggs, then put in the oil to fry.
  7. Fry on both sides for a some minutes till they are golden brown, then you know its ready.
  8. Enjoy!
