How to Make

It’s pretty easy, peel the yam, cute to cubes and boil in water till soften- do the same for the potato. Puree the Yam and Potato together. Start to add the bread crumbs – add until you get a nice mix you can work with and doesn’t crumbles. I used a cookie cuter to great those plate rounds but you can make them in any shape you want, just make sure that thickens is no more then a inch. One the rounds as ready, place 2-3 tablespoon of quality olive oil in your pan and fry each side till golden. You can store in the fridge up to 3 days.
