Dundun alata

I have bought the locally sold outdoor dundun many times and I’ve always enjoyed it. The only challenge is that it’s only sold in the evening where I stay. I wanted it in the morning this day, so I thought of DIY (Do It Yourself). Yeah! Then I had to factor in my love for pepper… I really love the spice pepper gives food; fresh pepper… hmmn…

Dundun alata is a really simple and fast to make… And will be just perfect as a snack or as a meal with sauce. You want to try out your own; really!

Let’s get cooking!

Ingredients 4 Servings

  • Yam chipped 1/2 tuber
  • Red Pepper Grounded as desired

Peel yam and chip into desired shape.



Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Put them on a kitchen towel; this will absorb any excess oil.

Step 5

Eat as much as you want. It’s so lovely…

Ps: I tried to make some in the oven instead of frying; it was as lovely, and with the joy of healthy cooking! This was how I served mine…
