Yam and Egg Sauce

Written by

yam and egg suace


  • 2 large eggs
  • 4-6 medium plum tomatoes (finely chopped or sliced)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Dry pepper or freshly chopped atarodo/scotch bonnet pepper (to taste), optional
  • 1-2 seasoning cubes (knorr or maggi)
  • Curry powder
  • 1/2 cup or 4 tablespoons of canola/vegetable oil ( change oil quantity based on your preference, but do not use too much)

I garlic clove (finely minced)


  • In a large or medium frying pan/skillet, heat the oil on medium heat
  • Once the oil is hot enough, add the onions and minced garlic and fry for about 3 minutes on medium heat or until the onions are translucent; stir occasionally

Add the chopped tomatoes and fry on medium low heat for about 7-10 minutes or until the sauce begins to taste more like stew and the tomatoes and onions are completely


bubbles at the top of the mixture. Then you can stir the mixture for about 2-3 more minutes until the eggs are completely solid and cooked. Unlike an egg omelette which is set; the egg stew contains a larger quantity of tomatoes and is more simllar to scrambled eggs as the eggs  form lumps in the tomato sauce.
