2. Spread the back of the yam on a dry surface with direct sunlight for it to dry, sometimes it takes two days or three before it’s properly dry.
3. Use a knife to remove that part that looks like a paper from the back of the yam
4. Ground it with a grounding machine, to those that doesn’t have can take it to where it will be grounded
After grounding your yam flour (Elubo) is ready and you can make it for consumption.
Back to the boiling yam after the 20 minutes as stated above add your salt, cover it and wait for another 10 minutes and check if the yam is well cooked if it’s well cooked then separate the water from the yam and serve your yam in a plate and also serve your fresh fish pepper soup in another another plate and your food is ready.
