      Unfortunately I am not sure since I do not live in the states. If you know a local Asian Market, you can check there. Japanese sweet potatoes are similar to the Nigerian variety, just be very careful not to buy the purple fleshed ones.

      Any vegetable store or supermarket carries sweet potatoes…we also have yams but they are not Nigerian yams.

    With raw chilli? That’s one combo I want to try. I used to eat this growing up. Brings back memories.

    I think the only form of potatoes I eat is fries. I should diversify. This looks good πŸ™‚
