I’m starting this month’s post with my gran’s (Iya Dele) staple, Gbegiri or popularly called abula in some other part of Yoruba land in Nigeria. My grandma used to sell this food and I remember people queuing up every evening to buy from her, she usually serve her gbegiri with Tuwo (corn flour). She prided herself in using fresh ingredients; my best part of the soup is the bone marrow and biscuit-bone that she uses.

At most Nigerian parties (owanbe), Fried rice is usually available on the menu. Everyone seems to have different method of cooking their fried rice.
