Fried Yam (Koliko)

  • yam (as much as you can eat)
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Salt to taste

Peel and cut the yam tuber into 1 inch cylindrical discs. Make several cuts across the discs to get large chips. Wash the yam chips and place in a bowl.

Add a little salt and toss the contents to distribute the salt. Set aside for 20 mins

Fry the yam at 350F

When the oil is heated, add a few yam chips, leaving enough room for flipping the chips.

Stir the chips till they have turned golden.

Remove the chips and place in the paper towels to absorb the oil.

For the sauce: I cooked habanero, smoked fish, shrimp, onion and salt for 5 mins on high heat.
