“Yamarita is a dish made from boiled yam dipped in whisked egg, then fried till golden brown. I often make Yamarita when I have leftover boiled yam from the previous day’s meal. Yamarita is often served with any hot dipping sauce or stew. Most fast food joints in Nigeria serve hot Yamaritas daily.” –  Dobby, Dobby’s Signature
