One of my favourite dish I want to share the recipe with you is pounded yam. It's a common meal in Benin and Togo.
Firstly, we have to peel the yam, clean it with water and slice it in a pot. Secondly, we cook the yam in the covered pot with water. Finally, the cooked yam is pounded in a mortar with a particular technic until the yam become elastic.
In Benin, pounded yam is often eaten with soap made with spices and grinded peanut.
