Yam Porridge, also known as Asaro in the Yoruba language, is a popular and traditional West African dish, particularly in Nigeria. It is made from yam tubers, which are peeled, washed, and then cut into small pieces. The yam is then cooked in a pot with water or stock, along with other ingredients such as onion, pepper, and tomatoes.

The yam is cooked until it becomes soft and begins to break down, forming a thick and creamy porridge. It’s then seasoned with salt and other spices like bouillon powder and maggi to give it a unique flavor. Some people also like to add palm oil to the porridge, which gives it a rich, nutty flavor.
