Yam Porridge

Yam Porridge

This recipe is also known as "Asaro". Made with Yam, vegetables, your choice of seafood(Titus fish, shrimps OR crayfish). Makes for a great dinner idea.


  • Yam

  • Palm Oil (to color)

  • 1 smoked fish (titus/mackerel) OR Dry fish

  • 1 tablespoon ground crayfish

  • 1 medium onion

  • Fresh green vegetable e.g Pumpkin, Parsley or Scent leaf (Effirin or Nchanwu)

  • Habanero or Chilli Pepper

  • Salt – to taste

  • Knorr Cubes

Preparation Method

  • Peel & cut the yam tuber into medium sizes. Wash the yam cubes and place in a sizeable pot.

  • Wash & cut the onions into tiny pieces. Grind / Blend the chilli pepper. Set these aside. If using dry fish, soak and pick the bones at this time.

  • Pour enough water to cover the yam cubes and start cooking at medium to high heat. If you are using dry fish, add it now.

  • When the yams have got a good boil, add the onions, ground crayfish, pepper, Knorr cubes, palm oil & the smoked fish.

  • Cover the pot and continue cooking till the yam is done. Add salt to taste and stir very well. Cook at high heat for about 5 minutes.

  • Add the green vegetable, stir and leave to stand for about 3 minutes then serve!
