YAM (yama imo?)

May 28, 2019

I’ve been looking for 'yama-imo 山芋' which is kind of  'Yam (potato)' for a long long time in Perth.

'yama-imo' have very sticky texture when grated and are used for Okonomiyaki, soba noodle, rice topping, sashimi etc etc.    Not a daily used vegetable, but common in Japan. 

 

I found odd looking veggie labelled 'Yam Yam'...   

looked different from the one I'm after, but bought it anyway just to try.

 

Very expensive, $17 KG !

I bought only one small piece, costed $4 😣  

1 piece of yam, size of a potato, $4....

 

Peeled and grated.

It didn't have sticky texture after grating at all, a bit watery like grated Japanese radish(daikon).

 

HOWEVER---

It was very tasty ! !   It had nice sweet flavour  😋

 

I'd love to try make new dish using this 'yam yam' if it's a lot cheaper 😓
