    littlefarmgirl's Note:

    This is a popular african snack, don't know where my mom got the recipe from, but it's very tasty, you could use ordinary potatoes instead of yam. They are traditionally made plain, but can be flavoured with vegetables, meat, fish or different spices, depending on your mood. ; )
