See the recipe for Yamarota below







  • Yam Batons
  • Eggs- You can also choose to use just the egg white
  • Pepper-Cayene pepper
  • Salt
  • Seasoning Cubes- Optional
  • Oats
  • Cooking Spray- Optional


  1. Cut your yam in rectangular strips and boil in salted water for about 5minutes. Timing will depend on how much yam you are boiling. What you want to achieve is an almost cooked yam. If you overcook, the yam will get soggy. You still want it firm. As soon as a fork goesthrough with just a little resistance, take it off the heat and drain immediately. if you leave it in hot water, it will just continue cooking. Once drained, lay it out on a plate, and leave it to cool
  2. Beat your eggs, and season with salt, dry pepper and seasoning cubes. Pour oats unto an empty plate.yamaraota 1.jpg 2
  3. Dip your yam batons into the eggs. You need to let the yams cool down a little, because if you dip hot yam into the eggs, it will start to cook the egg.yamaraota 1.jpg3
  4. After dipping into the eggs, then place on the plate with the oats and roll around until the oats have coated the yam. i must tell you, this isn’t as fast as with flour, just roll until you can cover the yam as best as you can.
  5. Lay on an oven tray, and you can decide to give them a sqiurt or two of cooking spray, or brush lightly with oilyamaraota 1.jpg 4
  6. This helps to make them brown and pretty, you can decide not to. Bake in an oven at 220 (UK oven), or until browned. If you use too high an oven setting, the oats will burn, and you don’t want that.yamaraota 1.jpg 5
  7.  These are so good, like you wont believe. Visually, spot on, crunch, spot on, taste, spot on, calories, waaaaay less than using flour
