Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.
Bring 1.125L water to the boil in a large saucepan. Using a wooden spoon, stir in 350 g (2 cups) pounded yam flour until combined. Reduce heat to low and continue to stir for 5 minutes or until thick, soft and smooth; add more water if necessary. To eat, pull off pieces and use to scoop up the egusi.
