I'm still trying to figure out how to shape yam this good. What can cut a heart shaped yam for me because this here is what I crave for lunch. Was it boiled before cutting or cut before boiling?

Nigerian Pounded Yam Made With Food Processor

Smooth, soft, hot, elastic pounded  yam in the dough bowl. Waiting to be scooped out.
 With all the blog posts on making pounded yam in a food processor, I never bothered trying because there was always someone around to help with the pounding. Well, yesterday I craved hot pounded yam with hot draw soup at a time there was no adult around and I had to quickly search the blog for the pounded yam in a food processor post by Onome.

How To Make Pounded Yam With A Food Processor

Making African pounded yam with a food processor
Hello Aunty Eya, 
I am tired of eating poundo yam but can't pound boiled yam smoothly with a mortar and pestle. I visited a friend and ate very well made pounded yam  made with her food processor.

She actually wrote down the steps for me but I am yet to have a food processor. I was just wondering  if someone can make, take pictures and help share with us, it would be more fun and easier to make.

Her first attempt was lumpy anyway, but the one I ate was exactly like yam pounded  with a mortar and pestle by professional yam pounders. When she asked me "doesn't pounded yam look like dough?" I just knew that the dough blade in a food processor should do the yam pounding job.
Here are the steps she wrote out for me:

  1. Boil the yam soft like the one you boil for pounding.
  2. Attach the dough blade to the food processor and turn the heat to low.
  3. Allow the yam to continue boiling while you pick a few slices depending on the size, and place in the food processor
  4. Cover your bowl, then turn the control dial to maximum
  5. Keep the engine running at maximum, watch the yam turn into grains like garri before pulling itself together into a dough.
  6. Allow it to run for a few seconds longer before you stop it, open the bowl and scoop out your pounded yam wrapped around the blade.

    Those who like soft pounded yam can add a little hot water with the yam slices before covering the bowl.
