What you do

Cut yam into round circles, peel off skin of yam and cut into into four(4) parts.

Wash in cold to lukewarm water and put the washed yam in a large pot and add enough water to cover the yam and cook until the yam is very soft.

Drain and pound smooth in a mortar with pestle, or put in food processor or yam pounder one piece at a time until it forms a soft dough of pounded yam.

Alternatively, use motar and pestle. Add the pieces of yam gradually and pound into a smooth paste. A few table spoons of hot water (one or two) may be added to smoothen the paste.
