1/4 medium size Water Yam
16 pieces of Beef ( small chunks)
1 cup pieces smoked Fish
1/2 cup smoked Prawns ( dressed)
11/2 cooking spoons Palm Oil
1 table spoon chopped Effirin
Dried Pepper to taste

Salt to taste

1, Peel, wash and grate the water yam, add a little salt and mix
2, Season and steam the meat with onion, pepper, salt and beef seasoning
3, When meat is cooked add the smoked fish, prawns and correct seasoning,  some more water and cook
for about 3 minutes.
4, Add the oil and cook for 5 minutes.
5, Using you hand drop the water yam  paste in small ball into the pot. Make sure to leave space between the balls to give enough room for the stock to boil up and cook the water yam
6, Reduce the flame to very low to allow the water yam  balls cook through. Do not stir immediately . If need be rock or shake the pot to free the water yam to cook. When cooked the balls are translucent  And the sauce thickens. Takes about 15 minutes to cook though.
