Elephant Foot Yam – ½ Kg

Salt – 1 teaspoon

Water – 2 Cups

Coconut – 1 Cup




Remove the skin of the yam and wash it thouroughly (wear gloves when doing this otherwise your hands may itch till the yam gets cooked). Cut into slices as shown in picture. Put the pieces in pressure cooker, add salt and water, cook for 5 to 6 whistles (If the yam is fresh from your garden when leaves are still green, you may not need 6 whistles after 2 to 3 whistles it will be ready). Off the stove after 5 to10 minutes open the cooker and remove the pieces to a plate without water. The yam is ready to eat.  Serve the yam with 2 or 3 table spoons coconut and instant onion pickle.
