2 Creative Ways To Include Egg In Your Diet- Yamarita & French Toast

The egg is one of Mother Nature’s numerous gifts to us. An egg can either be included into our cuisine to reap from its great taste and nutritive content or could be incubated, developing into a chick.
I sometimes do get bored with the regular scrambled eggs or omelette and have fun with French toast or yamarita. Easy to prepare, tasty and Yes! Nutritious.
 Yamarita is simply a dish of parboiled yams dipped in eggs and fried. Fried yam with a twist.
Materials needed
  • Yam sliced in rectangular shapes
  • Egg
  • Plain Flour
  • Cooking Oil (enough quantity to deep fry the yam)
  • 1 Teaspoon Cayenne/Atagungun
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Curry Powder and other seasonings of your choice
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder (Optional)
  • Salt to taste


  • Wash sliced yam pieces thoroughly, place in a small pot. Add water to cover the yam.
  •  Add salt and boil on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • After parboiling it, drain the water afterwards and leave to cool.
  • On a flat plate, combine the flour, pepper, bouillon cube, curry powder and other spices and set aside.
  • Break the egg into a flat plate, add salt to taste and set aside, you can also add a bit of seasoning.
  • Dip each yam into the egg mixture slightly to allow flour stick properly to the yam.
  • When that’s done, place each yam into the flour mixture, coat the yam chunks with the flour mixture ensuring each yam is well covered.
  • Set the coated yam aside on a flat plate. Then dip each yam piece into the egg mixture properly to ensure the egg mixture covers the yam as much as possible.
  • Place oil in a pan and set it on low-medium heat, to heat up. Dip each flour and egg coated yam into the oil and fry on all sides till slightly brown.
  • Strain in a sieve and serve as Yamarita is ready to eat.
Yamarita can be eaten plain with tea or with any stew or sauce.
