  • yam pealed and diced
  • palm oil
  • onions chopped
  • crayfish blended

  • seasoning
  • smoked fished deboned and shredded 
  • salt
  • pepper

Lets Make It...
1. Put a pan with water on heat, when it starts to boil, pour in the beans. Add the onions and salt. Cover and allow to cook.
2. When the beans is almost ready. Take out a seed and press with your finger, if it breaks easily then its time to add the yam. 
3. Add the diced yam. Pour in the palm oil, crayfish, smoked fish, seasoning, salt and pepper. Turn with a wooden spoon don't use an iron spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. 
4. Allow to simmer until the yam is cooked and then you can take it out. It is ready to be enjoyed.
