Yam pancakes


    This is a very delicious recipe that can be enjoyed savoury or sweet. It's extremely divine and a great recipe to enjoy on a Saturday. I'm going to be making this with a spicy mushroom sauce.

    1. Heat oil in a frying pan.
    2. Finely chop the mushrooms and half of the onion and place them into the hot oil. Saute for about five to ten minutes.
    3. Add some butter into the pan.
    4. In a food processor, blend the chilli peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, parsley, tomatoes, bell pepper, garlic cloves and half the onion until almost smooth.
    5. Add the blended mixture to the mushrooms and stir well.
    6. Add the Maggi, thyme, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper and stir until well combined.
    7. Add vegetable stock, soy sauce and water and then cover to simmer for about 30—35 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
    8. Peel and wash the yams and cut into medium wedges.
    9. Blend the water yams, flour, eggs, garlic powder, salt and onions in a large food processor.
    10. Finely chop the red bell pepper and work it into the batter with a spatula.
    11. Add the paprika, chilli powder and black pepper to the batter and mix until well combined.
    12. Heat the oil in a skillet.
    13. Scoop some of the batter into the oil and then spoon some of the minced meat and minced chicken on it.
    14. Then cover the meat with the batter and brown on both sides.
    15. Cover the skillet and let the pancakes cook so as to cook the meat through.
    16. Serve the pancakes with the sauce and enjoy hot.


    The sauce tends to be very spicy so you can reduce the peppers down to your taste.
