I’m sure you guys are going to love me for giving you these simple steps on how to prepare and enjoy the tantalizing dish of Yamarita and Pepper Sauce.
- 2 or 3Eggs
- Seasoning cube
- Tatashe (Red bell pepper)
- Ata Rodo (Scotch Bonnet)
- Half cup of flour
- Dried pepper (not necessary)
- Crayfish (not necessary)
How to prepare Yamarita
- Peel and slice the yam in rectangular shapes fit for frying then wash them with clean water.
- Boil the yam with salt and water until soft and suitable for eating (be careful not to let the water be too much so that the yam won’t be too soft)
- Remove your yam from the pot by draining the water completely away.
- Break and beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Add some seasoning and salt until you get your desired taste.
- Take a couple slices of yam and soak it in the beaten eggs and make sure it really soaks in.
- Once soaked remove from the egg and roll it evenly, in the flour and dried pepper mixture, then put inside the hot oil.
- Heat enough oil that can deep fry the yam in a frying pan.
- Do this same process to all the pieces of the yam till you finish frying.
- After you finish frying, arrange the yam slices on a paper towel to remove any excess oil
How to make pepper sauce
The pepper sauce is really not compulsory except you want to spice up your Yamarita. But without it, your Yamarita is still fine for eating.
- Blend the fresh pepper and onions.
- After blending, boil the blended pepper so that the water can dry out.
- Heat up a little amount of oil and fry the spices (like the ginger, thyme, and diced onions)
- Then add the blended pepper and season till you’re satisfied with the taste.
Yes Ladies! Your Yamarita and Pepper sauce is ready to be served. Please be careful not to bite your tongue or fingers while devouring it! You’re welcome!
