How to Roll Eba/Garri "Swallow"

When it comes to the Nigerian "swallow", there are different ways in which they could be presented and there's no limit to the shapes you could get. You could use the different methods below for any type of swallow such as; Pounded yam, wheatmeal swallow, Semolina/Semovita, Fufu/Akpu, Amala, Cornmeal e.t.c. For this tutorial, i made use of the yellow garri swallow (Yellow Eba) since Garri/Eba is seen as the king of "swallows", correct me if i'm wrong :). 

Things needed :
Transparent nylon
• Rolling pin
• Flat surface
• Knife/Scissors
Swallow Scoop


#Shape 1: Rolled Eba/Garri

Procedure:
Step 1: Place the swallow with the swallow scoop in the Transparent nylon making sure it's aligned at one edge of the nylon to form a rectangle.

Step 2: With the rolling pin, roll it out on the flat surface


Step 3: With a Scissors, Cut Open the Transparent nylon and gently use the nylon to fold the swallow till you get to the edge.
And that's how to get your rolled garri.

#Shape 2: Eba/Garri Ball Shape

Procedure:
Step 1: Divide the transparent nylon into two. Scoop the swallow into the transparent nylon 

Step 2: Close up the swallow with the nylon and mold to form a round ball-like shape. 

#Shape 3: Garri/Eba Ball Pyramid
Procedure:
Simply wet your hands and roll the swallow into small balls. This is suitable for little kids that cannot roll "swallow" themselves

    Thanks for sharing. I have been asking updand on social media handle pics. no one wants to share. I had an inclination that the roll pin was involved now you shared more detail. May God bless you abundantly. May your needs be met fast as the speed of light.
    God bless
