How to make Curried Rice

Eating white rice could be quite monotonous and sometimes boring. To jazz up white rice, i sometimes add curry powder to improve the taste as well as give it a visual appeal. When prepared with stock and stir fried with vegetables then you've got fried rice. When paired with chicken stew, veggie chicken gravy or even beef and potato soup, it takes the flavor overboard. Here's a quick tutorial on how to make curried rice.

Beef and potato soup recipe

There's this restaurant i go to eat in once in a while located not too far from where i stay. They've got a lot of tasty meals on the menu but one meal that stands out for me is this beef and potato soup. At first, i probably got attracted by the colors but then it takes more than colors to keep me coming back for more. So, instead of enjoying this meal alone i decided to start making it at home for the fam . This recipe is very much inspired by their beef and potato soup creation...although I do not know their recipe and this isn't exactly a "copycat" version per se. This is just an easy way to make something similar at home for everyone to enjoy and i think it tastes even better ;).

How to preserve tomato and pepper puree without refrigeration

With bumper recipes which require a mixture of tomato and pepper as a base such as jollof rice, jollof spaghettistews and sauces, pizza, figuring out how to preserve these perishable goods couldn't be far fetched. Also, with the current state of the already epileptic power supply in the country, learning to store these goods without placing it in the refrigerator or freezer would come in handy. Preserving it this way makes it easier to use when ready and can also store for several days and even weeks with or without refrigeration.

Abak Atama Soup recipe

Happy new week people! Hope y'all had a splendid weekend like i did. Over the weekend, i cooked one of my favorite soups known as Abak atama. For those who don't know yet, Abak atama is a popular soup Native to the Efiks which is an ethnic group located primarily in south-eastern part of Nigeria i.e Cross River State. It's similar to Ofe Akwu of the easterners and Banga soup of the southerners with the only difference being the spices and herbs used in cooking. The name "Abak" simply means palm fruit extract and "Atama" is a vegetable also known as Beletete in delta state hence the name Abak Atama which is derived from a combination of the palm fruit and vegetable used in cooking it. It's mostly prepared with seafood which is quite popular in the region but you can use beef in the preparation also. Below is a quick tutorial on how to cook it.

Naija Toast - French toast recipe using agege bread

I have a theory, that once breakfast is good, the rest of the day goes on perfectly well. Our very own Naija toast is one good way to bring stale old bread back to life. This is a recipe adopted from the popular french toast using Agege bread. If you're confused on what to have for breakfast then look no further. This recipe works best if you've got old dry bread although you can use any type of bread you want. The theory applied to Naija toast is simple. Hard agege bread is dipped into a mixture of milk and eggs then pan fried with butter and served with a syrup by the side...Straight forward isn't it?
