WOK'CHOP: Yam and Plantain Porridge ...Without Palm Oil

I'm not a fan of yam, I rarely eat it....maybe once a month if I do and I like it sweetened with over ripe plantain. I know some other people like yam, so I will share my recipe.

Ata Rodo
Vegetable Oil
Knorr Seasoning

  • Blend tomatoes, pepper and onions. Transfer it to a pot and boil till it is almost dry and in form of a paste like the picture above.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a separate pot and fry onions and green pepper, add some knorr seasoning and fry till the onion is cooked, then add the tomato mixture, reduce the cooker heat and allow to fry, stir it frequently. Add seasoning to it.
  • Chop yam into cubes and slice the plantain as well.
  • When the stew is cooked, add any stock you have and add water, then add the yam and plantain.
  • Add the blended crayfish and any other ingredient you want, mix everything then cover the pot. 
  • Allow the yam and plantain to cook till it softens, then using a wooden spoon mash a bit of the yam. I like mine all mashed up like baby food. I don't want to see the yam. Some people don't like to mash it up at all, they like seeing huge chunks of yam.
  • Allow it to simmer for 5 more minutes and turn off the cooker....
