Now, before you make this, be sure you are making enough for the kids and also put on your kitchen discipline armour otherwise you finish eating it before it gets to the dining table. It is so easy to make that before you say
“shred yam and carrot, then fry”, it is already done.
This is one of those ‘conjure something up’ spontaneous ideas and i actually started out without knowing what it will turn out to be. I was actually thinking of making 9jafoodie’s yam casserole dish (nice recipe that i’ve tried twice) before my head decided something else. Now, this hash looks more like a finger food and African Salad (Abacha in Igbo language) comes to my mind. Try allowing the the kids to use their hands (washed…remember) to savour the dish. It is carbohydrate and
green orange vegetable, and you can serve it with fried fish for a more balanced meal.
- Yam (quantity depends on number of children you are serving)
- Cooking Oil (I use olive or sunflower oil)
- Seasoning and Pepper
- Grate yam and carrot. Mix together with seasoning in a bowl.
- Pour a tablespoon of oil in a pan, add your mixture and stir fry till the yam turns golden.
- So easy…right? Try it and give me a feedback.
- When you grate yam, the quantity you get is a lot more. Therefore, a little yam will go a long way than when you cut and cook it.
- You can grate the yam and carrot with your manual grater, food processor or even a spiraliser, if you want it to look longer like noddles.
