Have a taste of yam porridge this weekend

Yam porridge is a special type of African food prepared majorly from yam. Its uniqueness has to do with its recipe—depending on locality and culture—that comprises, but not limited to crayfish, snail, carrot, dry fish, variety of pepper and green beans.

Relished more during New Yam Festivals, it can also be enjoyed during other ceremonies like weddings, birthdays, and even at homes and restaurants.

With all these inviting culinary qualities, it is surprisingly easy to prepare, and at the same sweetly addictive.

Let us go straight to the kitchen and prepare our mouth-watering yam porridge.
