Yam porridge is a hearty and satisfying Nigerian dish that is perfect for a comforting meal. When paired with fried fish and ponmo, it creates a delicious and well-rounded meal that is sure to satisfy. In this blog post, we’ll explore the ingredients and preparation of this beloved Nigerian dish.

Yam porridge is made by boiling yam until it is soft and tender, and then cooking it in a flavorful broth made with onions, peppers, tomatoes, and a variety of spices and seasonings. The result is a thick and hearty porridge that is perfect for pairing with fried fish and ponmo.

To prepare this dish, start by peeling and cutting the yam into cubes. Boil the yam in a pot of water until it is soft and tender. While the yam is boiling, sauté onions, peppers, and garlic in oil until they are softened. Add fresh tomatoes, tomato paste, and the spices and seasonings, and simmer until the sauce is thick and fragrant. Add the cooked yam to the pot and stir until it is well coated with the sauce. Add enough water to create a thick and creamy porridge, and then simmer until the flavors are well blended.

For the fried fish and ponmo, start by seasoning the fish and ponmo with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, and then fry the fish until crispy and golden brown. Drain off any excess oil and then serve alongside the yam porridge.

To serve, plate a generous portion of yam porridge, along with a few pieces of fried fish and ponmo on top. Garnish with fresh herbs or sliced peppers for added flavor and color.
