When reminiscing some boarding house chronicles, one meal that should ring a bell is Kwado. It was one of those meals we ate when we were so broke while in school and couldn't afford a real decent meal. Times like that meant we had to get creative with whatever we had available to get by....In came kwado. I mean, who didn't have garri or sardine available stashed somewhere in a locker. About 3-6 people would gather around one little bowl of kwado like it was the tastiest meal in the world..lol!
Kwado is a cold meal made with from a mixture of dry pepper/yaji, mashed sardines & oil, onion, kuli kuli and sometimes stock cubes. It's mostly prepared by BROKE boarding house students with no option of getting a decent meal :D. What do you call this in your language?
