  • Preheat the oven to 170°C
  • Cut off one end the yam and cut into big chunks.
  • Peel the yam and cut into sticks/batons. Drop the yam into a bowl of water to prevent browning.
  • Pour the yam sticks into a colander to drain, then pour in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter so it turns liquid. Pour into the bowl with some salt and the spices.
  • Toss the yam to get even coating on all pieces and pour on a baking tray.
  • Make sure the oven has achieved the right temperature, and place the tray in.
  • Leave to bake for 20 mins. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
