Happy New Month Everyone!!!
How are y'all doing? hope great! I must say as i type this, i'm so excited. You know why??? Cos i can now .........Wait for it..........Wait for it..........Wait for it..............Make pounded yam in a blender!!!!!! Yayyyy!!!!. Sounds unbelievable right?.....hehehehe!!!. Even as skeptical as i was while attempting it for the first time, my mum was staring at me like...."This babe wants to spoil my blender O!....someone's soooo going to get me a new blender.....lolz!". When i was finally done and i served up the pounded yam to her with okra soup,she stared at me in shock and even told me to make extra for my papa. No lumps, No koko....just pure, smooth pliable pounded yam. I want to say a big thank you to those who suggested i tried it out after my post on How to make pounded yam from scratch through comments and mails else i'd still be stuck in the stone age. And there i was pounding yam with all my strength....LMAO!!!. Abeg! make una follow me thank God for technology :D.....Lets go there!



How to make pounded yam in a Blender/ Food Processor
•Prep time:
  5 mins
•Cook time: 15 mins
• Serves:      4

Things Needed:::

• A Blender or Food Processor
• A medium sized pot

Ingredients:::
• 1 Medium Sized Yam tuber (Preferably old yam)
• Water


Directions:::
Step 1: Slice and peel the skin off the yam - Wash thoroughly with clean water

Step 2: In the medium sized pot, boil the yam with water till soft for about 15 mins. Don't let the water used in cooking the yam dry up as the yams need to be moist before blending. Once the yam is done, cut up the chunks of yam with a fork and place in a blender.

Step 3: Pulse the blender for some few seconds so it'd break up the yams further. Blend for about 2-3 mins till you have a smooth and stretchy yam (Please note that the blades of the blender need to be sharp to achieve this). 

Step 4: Turn out into a flat dish and serve with any Nigerian Soup of your choice

    Brilliant idea, rather than use yam flour (unsure of whats in the flour?????) I've always used (after boiling the yam) a potatoe masher and then wooden spoon to blend to a near smooth texture. YUMMY!

  11. Pounded Yam in blender? OMG! Some Naija Sistas are truly creative. You are one genius, Dobby. My readers will surely like this.
    It may not be like the real thing but when you are abroad with no mortar and pestle, and no choice but poundo (yam powder), fresh yam "pounded" (lol) in blender could taste like heaven.
    Thanks for this post Adaobi.

    1. Currently, i use a Russell hobs mini food processor. it's quite stronger than most blenders i've used in the past.
