Depending on the size of the yams you are able to buy, and what you are eating it with, each tuber should feed about 4-6 people.
- Cut the yam up into small strips.
- Put vegetable oil into a pot, until it is at least 2 inches (or about 5 centimeters) high...it should cover the strips completely while cooking. Place on low heat, and allow it to heat up.
- Once the oil is hot, place some of the strips into the oil. Allow it to cook and fry the strip, making sure that it cooks to the inside.
- yams usually don't soak up much oil, but if you want, you can place them directly on napkins to soak up some of the extra oil.
