Spicy Yam Rings Recipe

Spicy Yam Rings Recipe

Ingredients :

500g (1 lb) yam, taro or sweet potato

2 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

2 heaped tsp hot curry powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

100g (3.5 oz) melted lard (optional)

dry breadcrumbs

oil for shallow frying

Method :

Peel yam, taro or sweet potato. Cut into 2.5cm (1 inch) cubes and place in a steamer to cook until soft. Allow to cool slightly, then mash. Stir in salt, pepper, curry powder and chili powder and mix to a smooth paste with melted lard. Sweet potato is usually of a much more moist consistency than yam or taro, so if it used, omit lard and substitute a little flour, preferably split pea or gram flour.

Knead for several minutes to distribute the spices evenly, then with oiled hands roll into balls about 4cm (1.5 inches) in diameter. Put on a square of muslin, with space between each. Cover with another piece of cloth and carefully press down to flatten a little. Press the thumb or forefinger through each flattened cake to form a ring. Remove cloth. Smooth edges of each ring and coat thickly with breadcrumbs. Let stand for 15 minutes, in the refrigerator if kitchen is warm.

Heat oil to smoking point, turn heat down very slightly and fry yam rings quickly until crisp on the surface but still soft inside. Lift out and drain on absorbent paper. Serve either warm or cold.
