Don’t let your mango go to waste now that it is in season. Mango lassi is one of the many ways you can enjoy mango other than just eating it. It is served as dessert/drink in India and Bangladesh. It can either be served as a savoury or sweet drink. You can jazz it up with honey and spices if you want.
As easy as this soup is, I always make a call to my mum still, to ask for the recipe all over again each time I need to cook it (don’t ask me, I don’t know why I do it). My mama makes the best okra soup ever, whether plain or the one pot soup and she doesn’t mess about in the kitchen, she knows her onions. I made this okra soup on Sunday after church and I couldn’t help but share with my fellow foodies.
I’m still on about valentine and #bae. Valentine should not leave you out of pocket and should not be a thing of impressing others for the wrong reasons. We should learn to embrace change and do something new sometimes. If you go out on a date night at every val's day, why not give it a miss this year and stay at home to cook something really quick and special for your love.
Nigerian government have messed up valentine for all hard life baes..lol well you've got no excuse now but to make valentine happen for your loved ones. you dont have to spend heavily on gifts and you dont buy true love with gift either.
I made these pies today with my little one. It is easy and fun to make, there was a bit of mess involved because of the help I had from Her Royal Highness which I found a way around in the end. I cleared up separate work space and placed her own little baking items there; that did the magic.
Happy new month my fellow foodies, I can’t believe we are in the second month already. Today’s recipe could pass for a snack or brunch but typically, it is eaten in Nigeria as beer-mate after a stressful day, mostly a reward after a long day at work. Valentine is around the corner and this recipe can grace your table on a date night.
The first time I cooked this soup, I invited my dad to mine for lunch. I called him on the phone and I started going on about this new soup I learnt to cook from the TV. He was like your mum is not gonna like that. I told him, trust me she wouldn’t mind if she tastes the goodness of this soup.
This recipe is one of the quickest meals you can make after the day’s hard job. It requires less or no prepping time and it is healthy and super delish... the fish can be cooked straight away as you don’t need to marinate it, the sweet potato doesn't need peeling, all you have to do is season well, put in the oven and wait to enjoy a stress free meal after a stressful day.
This stew is different from ‘ayamase’ simply because of the choice of pepper. Green bell pepper is used for ayamase but if you want the proper local taste, then I think you should try it with the red bell pepper and some tomatoes. To be honest I didn’t discover ayamase until I was in my 20’s.
There is no story behind this wonderful recipe. I woke up this blessed morning, checked my fridge for what to cook and I ended up with suya popcorn chicken. If you love chicken and you want to try something new and not necessarily going to KFC to enjoy their lovely chicken popcorn, then I think you have come to the right place.
