Poundedyam in a Blender

Hi lovelies.

Merry Christmas

How are you all doing? Great I believe and I hope you have entered for my giveaway in the previous post?

Two Sundays ago, I tried something that stunned my family. I made pounded yam in a blender (not much news tho, it's everywhere now i think ) 

The blender

Poundedyam has always been a regular meal in my house especially during festive seasons, for as long as I can remember until the powdered pounded yam was introduced. You see, pounding yam in a mortar became an unfavourable labour for a lot of people since there was now an alternative (the processed one).

I was surfing the internet sometime in April and came across a post on Dobby’s blog about making poundedyam in a blender and I was shocked. ‘Seriously, poundedyam in a blender, how is that possible’, I said to myself. Well, since poundedyam is my favourite (as an Ondo girl) and just to satisfy my curiosity, I decided to try it out. So I told my mum and she expressed the same thing as it not being possible. In a bid to convince her, I made it while everyone was away and it was perfect. 

I was so happy that I told her of my success. But that was not enough until I show a proof...lol (It was just a little I made and I ate it all). I never tried it again until last month, on a Sunday. We were to have the normal powdered ‘poundoyam’ then I remembered Dobby’s post thought of making a blended poundedyam. Everyone agreed to see the kind of magic I was about to perform...lol

All I did can be seen in the pictures below...
Already sliced
Then into pieces

During the process

Just to impress everyone, I made a quick one and showed them. They were all surprised and told me to carry on..hehehe.

Taaaaraaaaannnn! Pounded yam to fele gaaan

And that was how I made the poundedyam using a blender. It turned out great. 

Poundedyam made easy. 

You can check Dobby’s blog for more details if you have never seen the post. Also, you can check Dooney’s Kitchen, saw a similar post on her blog yesterday)

So has anyone tried it before? Did it also turn out great? Who is willing to try it?

P.S: As for me, this is going to be an habitual way of making my poundedyam until further notice. I say no to the powdered poundedyam. Nothing tastes better than the real thing.

Merry Christmas to you all once again and a wonderful new year to come
