How to Prepare Cheezy Yam Balls.

Empty a pack of Sympli yam cubes into a pot of boiling water. Allow to cook for 8 mins or till very soft.

In a bowl, pour in hot yam and mash with butter, seasoning cubes, black pepper, and chopped parsley and set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, mix breadcrumbs and Suya spice and set aside.

In another bowl, whisk eggs and set aside. Cut cheese into small cubes.

Scoop some yam into your palm and place a cube of cheese in between and mold the yam around it into a ball.

Dip the yam in egg mix and roll around in seasoned breadcrumbs.

Heat up oil in a frying pan on medium heat, gently place each ball into oil and cook until golden brown.

Serve your cheesy yam balls with a spicy creamy sauce.
