Guess its nice to let you guys know  that the admin of Umahiprince'blog is also a cook. It was fun this afternoon when i discussed with my friends and readers that I'll start to drop few things that i can be able to prepare in other to enable my readers not just to known what is happening around them, but to also learn how to  be perfect in the kitchen

Today am gonna start with how to prepare one of my favorites "Yamarita and pepper sauce". In this article, i will be giving you guys my personal twist on making the otherwise basic yam and pepper sauce. It has become a menu item in my house that my family and friends always request.

It is so easy to prepare, just follow the simple steps and you are on your way to enjoying the tantalizing dish of Yamarita and Pepper Sauce.

Are you ready? Let's start....


  1. Yam
  2. 2-3 Eggs
  3. Half cup of flour
  4. Dried pepper (optional)
  5. Salt
  6. Seasoning cube
  7. Red bell pepper (Tatashe)
  8. Scotch Bonnet (Ata Rodo)
  9. Onions
  10. Thyme
  11. Ginger
  12. Crayfish (optional)

Method – Yamarita 

  1. Cut the yam in rectangular shapes, wash and boil with salt and water. The water should not be too much so that the yam wouldn’t be too soft and break to pieces.
  2. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, add salt and seasoning to your desired taste and set aside.
  3. Mix the flour with dried pepper,  I like to add some seasoning spices as well and set aside.
  4. Check you yam by putting your fork in the yam, if it goes through then it’s soft enough, remove from the fire, drain the water and keep.
  5. Heat up some oil in a frying pan (enough oil that can deep fry the yam), when the oil is hot, take the yam and soak it in the beaten eggs and make sure it soaks in. Once soaked remove from the egg and roll it in the flour and dried pepper mixture (making sure the flour covers all the sides of the yam) then put inside the hot oil.
  6. Do this same process to all the pieces of the yam and after frying, arrange them on a paper towel to remove excess oil

Method – Pepper Sauce

  1. Blend the pepper and onions (I usually do not allow it to blend smoothly) then boil the blended pepper so that the water can dry out.
  2. Heat up a little oil and fry the spices (crushed ginger, thyme, diced onions) then add the blended pepper. Season to your desired taste.
Yamarita and Pepper Sauce is ready!!!  You can decide to serve with Grilled Fish or Chicken or enjoy it with the Pepper alone.
