How to cook yam

  • Slice yam into about 1-inch size and peel the skin off.
  • Rinse in clean water till water runs clear and no residue in water.
  • Put yam in a pan, add enough water to cover it, add salt and place on medium heat and cook till soft. Test with a fork, if it goes through, then the yam should be soft enough. 
  • Drain water from yam and move on to making the egg sauce.

How to make egg sauce

  • Break eggs into a shallow bowl, whisk till egg white and egg yolk are well combined, add salt and whisk to combine then set it aside
  • Place a frying pan on a medium/low heat, add of vegetable oil, heat for about 2-3 minutes
  • Add chopped peppers and onions (this should sizzle) and cook for about 4-5 minutes or till oil floats on the sauce, add salt, seasoning, curry and thyme. Stir to combine ingredient with sauce and also avoid sauce sticking to the pan
  • Add whisked eggs to sauce and leave for about a minute before stirring. (this will allow the egg to set a bit) Stir to scramble egg. Serve egg sauce with boiled yam immediately.
