Preparation of pounded yam

1. Boil your yam till the yams are well done. Make sure you cut them into small pieces.

2. Put the pieces of yam into your blender, blend for 2 seconds and add a few more. You can keep checking it and once it is smooth, stop the blender.

Note: If you leave it running for too long the pounded yam becomes softer and elastic.

Serve your pounded yam with your favourite soup.
