Gone are the days when we slap Nigerian food on the plate. This current day, our soup staples (morsel types) are presented in an appealing and appetising ways. I posted Ofe Onugbu on Facebook recently and I had a request on how to make Eba roll, I know this post (eba roll) is available on some other food blogs but hey it is rather late here than never.
If you think bread- making is a hard job, then think again. This is a fool proof method I found here. I tweaked the recipe a bit, I have made this twice now and I tell you nothing beats home made bread. The lovely aroma coming out of the kitchen oven would blow your mind away. This is the easiest method to make Nigerian styled Agege bread.
Plantain is one of the good carbs you can eat and get away with. Not only is it a good source of energy and starch, it also aids bowel movement. It has lots of minerals and it is a good source of vitamins A, C, B6 etc. I learnt more about plantain fufu when I was on a year programme of the National Youth Service Corp in Kano
The Okazi leaf is mostly used in the eastern part of Nigeria. I recently had a request for lumpy egusi on my blog although, I have other types of egusi soup (melon seed) cooked with uwgu but I thought it’s high time I made another type of egusi and since some of my readers are now requesting for it. I enjoy egusi soup in any form it comes.
Dodo Ikire is very easy to make, it is sweet, squidgy and also brings back lovely childhood memories. The best part of it for me that makes it different from any other street snacks is the way it’s packaged in a pointed-like wrapping and every bite of the snack you take you’ll wish it lasts forever.
The first time I ever tasted Banga soup was with my dad in Lagos. We were at this restaurant and he ordered Banga soup. I started interrogating him immediately, what is Banga soup? What is it made of etc? My dad just told me, ‘IYA’, calm down, you will see it when they serve us! When they served him his soup, it was in a clay pot. You need to see the look on my face that day. What!!!
Today I am dedicating this post to my igbo friends. I was on the phone to my friend the other day and I told her I am cooking ofe onugbu but I don’t have ogiri, she just told me don’t bother. She said if you give a non ibo man maybe he would eat but an ibo person would definitely not like it and that got me thinking for a minute. I told myself, if I’m cooking this soup, I better do it right.
I made this recipe last valentine’s but didn’t blog about it as the pictures I took were not good enough due to poor lighting although, I shared it on Instagram. The weather was pretty kind to me last weekend and I made this as brunch for my family. Every bite of this suya burger was juicy and yummy. I can’t wait to make it again.
Hello lovies, hope you all had a good week? Here is a quick recipe for the weekend. If you are a lover of pasta and spaghetti, then this one is for you. You can even prepare your indomie noodles with this super easy recipe too. My friend (Imimi) always make this food while we were in school, she would cook her spaghetti jollof with tomato puree and chilli and I tell you it was the bomb.
At most Nigerian parties (owanbe), Fried rice is usually available on the menu. Everyone seems to have different method of cooking their fried rice. I catered for my Cameroonian friend once and she said she would rather have chopped meat instead of liver, mainly because of her guests, it added a different twist to the rice.
