Recipe By:
  • 2 c. cooked yams
  • ½ c. flour
  • 1 T. allspice
  • 1 T. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 T. black pepper
  • ¼ c. chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • 1 T. Greek yogurt
  • Canola oil
  • Chutney (store bought—your favorite flavor like Mango Chutney, goes well with this.)
  1. Mash the yams in a bowl and add the flour, allspice, ginger, salt, pepper, cilantro and yogurt. Mix well.
  2. Form into small patties about 2” in diameter.
  3. In a non-stick skillet, pour enough oil to cover the bottom but not too deep. Heat over medium.
  4. Place patties in skillet, leaving space between them and fry. Cook about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden and crispy and cooked throughout.
  5. Serve with your favorite chutney.
****This will make about 14 cakes. You can substitute canned yams but you may have to add more flour as canned items tend to have more liquid in them.
