Garlic Spiced Yam Air Fries step by step
- Julian cut the yams.
- Bring water to boil in a vessel.
- Add the Julian cut yams in the vessel and boil it for 2 minutes.
- Strain out excess water and shock the yams with cold water to stop further cooking.
- Place the yams in a bowl, sprinkle some salt.
- Wrap them up in a towel or a paper towel and place the bowl in the freezer for 12-15 minutes. (This step is important because the freezer reduces moisture in the yams).
- While our yams are freezing, let’s start making the spice mix for them.
- In a bowl, mix all ingredients for the spice.
- When the yams are cold enough take them out, in case you do not have an air fryer but have an oven skip to step number 16.
- Place the yams in the air fryer at 370 for 10 minutes.
- After ten minutes when you pull them out, they should be almost cooked, throw them in the bowl with the spice mix.
- Move them around in the bowl until all the spice mix has been stuck to the yams along with the olive oil.
- Place the yams in the fryer again and run it for 5 more minutes.
- In case your yams are still not crispy enough, toss them around to air them and put them again for another 2 minutes in the air fryer.
- If you are using the air fryer this is the last step of this recipe for you, savour the flavour.
- If you are using the oven, ensure it is preheated to 420 for at least 15 minutes..
- First mix the frozen yams in the spice mix and then place them on baking sheets.
- Place them in the oven at 420, for 25 mins (keep checking to avoid burnt fries).
- If the fries are not as crispy as you expect, keep them for 5 minutes longer.
