Mama Sunday's Easy Mealz: Review


A few days ago, i received some packs of Mama Sunday's instant rice to try out. The first time i came across this product was during the Taste Off event held recently. At first, i was in doubt on how the final result would turn out but after giving it a go my notion changed entirely as i was really impressed. Prior to trying it out, i never thought jollof or fried rice could be prepared just as quick as noodles. i'm quite certain lots of people would find this useful especially during rush hours. Easy Meals is definitely the perfect blend of convenience and reliability. No artificial preservatives, coloring or flavors added.

How to make Akara (Bean cake)

Akara balls totally remind me of the weekends when i was in boarding school. i'm pretty certain most people would agree that this is one of the most satisfying breakfast meals ever. It is also going to be the softest, easiest, fluffiest akara you'd ever make. Akara (Bean cake) is a deep fried meal made from ground beans (Black eyed peas) and a host of other ingredients. It's one of the most common meals you'd find on the breakfast table in most Nigerian homes. it can be taken alone as a snack or served with Pap (akamu "igbo"/ Ogi "Yoruba"/koko"Hausa"), Bread, Garri, peppered stew e.t.c.

Plantain Mosa

Throwing away rotten plantains is as common as buying them. We all know the drill, once the skin gets almost black, it goes into the waste bin and the cycle of buying and throwing starts again. Well, not anymore as i'm about to show you how to turn overripe plantains into a delightful snack anytime.

Nigerian Chicken Stew (Tomato stew)

Nigerian chicken stew is a tomato and pepper based stew which is used mainly as a compliment to dishes such as rice, yam, potato, bread, plantain and a host of others. For this dish, you can use any type of chicken you have in your house but personally, i love using broiler chicken because it has got more meat than any other type of chicken. If you're a little bit health conscious and you want to keep the fat down, you could take the skin off the meat because that's where most of the fat deposits lay.

Taste Off Lagos (Photos from the Event ) On Street foodie waka

I just love going for street foodie waka events because not only do i get to feed my eye's with lots of goodies, i also get to feed my belly too. A few days ago, i told you about the upcoming taste off event HERE and on sunday the 5th of October, i headed to Freedom park with my very good friend after church service for the event. The venue was packed with lots of food enthusiasts from far and near. At the venue, we were given free Vouchers for drinks such as;Lemonade, Beer and water which was quite good. Apart from the food, i was also glad i finally met up with other bloggers including the beautiful Uzo of uzo's food labs, really lovely lady i tell you.The event was also filled with food vendors from across Lagos who came to showcase their wares. Below are some of the pictures from the event.

Ewa agoyin Recipe

Way back during my secondary school days in Badagry, we always had Ewa Agoyin with Soft Agege bread every Tuesday on the menu. I guess that was were my love for Ewa Agoyin began. The preparation was also something i had to learn unwillingly because back then, whenever we committed a "crime", we were usually sent to the kitchen as a form of punishment to Cook with the Egun Women who were the chief cooks in the school (Most of them were from neighboring countries but had blended into the Nigerian system so well, you could hardly tell.

How to make Asaro a.k.a mashed yam porridge

Yam porridge is a staple food in Nigeria but the version which is quite popular in the western part of Nigeria is known as Asaro (also known as  Ebe (pronounced eh-beh))and this is due to the method of preparation. The preparation of Asaro is quite simple and needs few ingredients with little or no vegetables unlike the typical normal yam porridge. For the preparation of asaro, you'd need a mixture of blended peppers and regular yam. It's a simple one pot meal which takes little or no time to prepare. It can be served with "Obe Ata Iru", Hard boiled egg or steamed leafy Vegetables

Ofada rice stew - Ayamashe sauce recipe

Ayamase also known as designer stew is a tasty stew served alongside ofada rice. It's quite similar to the normal ofada sauce "Obe ata iru" except for some slight changes with the peppers used. It's a delicacy which is quite popular in the western part of Nigeria especially amongst the Yorubas. It also used to be a 'best kept secret' by the natives and popularized by Makeshift roadside restaurants popularly known as Bukkas /"Mama-put" but now common in most households. It's prepared with mostly green peppers and assorted meat or fish hence the name designer stew and like most Nigerian meals, it has got palm oil as a base.

How to cook Ofada rice + Things you didn't Know

Ofada Rice (grown in Mowe Ofada Town, Ogun state, Nigeria.) also known as Abakiliki rice (grown in Abakiliki - Ebonyi state, Nigeria) has it very own unique spot in the Nigerian cuisine table. It's a Locally grown type of short grained brown rice which is mostly sold unpolished and unrefined with part of the bran still intact. Surprisingly, even though it's not as refined as the regular rice and most times abandoned for white rice due to it's peculiar qualities, it's much more superior nutritionally to white rice.

Frequently, i get questions on the standard measurements especially when it comes to baking. i've even resorted to using empty saturated milk cups take most of my measurements since that's what's used as the basic measuring standard cup in Nigeria.

How to make Tapioca pudding with KpoKpo Garri

Whenever you hear KPOKPO Garri on the streets don't be confused, this is because it's simply the one and only Tapioca. I really don't know why tapioca doesn't get so much love as Pap (Akamu/Ogi), as it's absolutely tasty and definitely deserves the same adulation as other Nigerian desserts especially "The Oga at the Top". Tapioca is the white starchy extract from cassava. it's fermented, flaky version is the garri we all know. it's a staple food in some parts of Nigeria and it has a similar consistency with pap, from the way it is prepared to the way it is eaten though its physical appearance looks more like it has got round, clear starch bubbles in itMy first Encounter with this meal was HERE on street foodie waka and i immediately fell in love with it
