Yield: Serves 1-2
• One seasoning cube (such as Maggi)
• A Pinch of salt
• Two medium-sized onions
• One medium-sized yam
• 250ml pure palm oil
• One yellow Scotch bonnet pepper
Start the charcoal fire: Begin by preparing your charcoal grill for roasting. Ensure the coals are evenly spread and at the right temperature.
Prepare the yam: Clean the yam thoroughly and cut it into your preferred sizes and shapes.
Roast the yam: Place the yam slices on the grill over the charcoal and allow them to roast until they are well-cooked and have a nice char. If you prefer, you can also roast the yam in an oven or a pressure cooker for a similar effect.
Prepare the palm oil sauce: While the yam is roasting, take a clean pot and place it near your cooking area. Pour the palm oil into the pot and gently heat it, taking care not to overheat or smoke the oil.
Add flavorings: To the heated oil, add a pinch of salt, the onions, finely chopped yellow Scotch bonnet pepper, and crumble in the seasoning cube for taste. Cover the pot.
Cook the sauce: Let the sauce simmer, allowing the onions to caramelize and become tender. The goal is to create a sauce where the onions are well-cooked and infused with the flavors of the pepper and seasoning.
Finalize and serve: Once the yam is properly charred and the sauce is ready, remove both from the heat. Peel the charred skin off the yam, and serve the warm yam slices alongside the savory palm oil sauce.
Enjoy your meal: Your charred yam with palm oil sauce is now ready to be enjoyed. This dish is perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner.
