Kwado recipe- How to make Kwado


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?

    Dry gari!? We wud soak the gari, drain all d water and let it sit for like 3 minutes (turns out like cous-cous) before adding the other ingredients. You cud add chopped tomatoes and lettuce leaves.

  6. You did not wet your garri with water. The kwado wont be moist. It will be quite dry.
    For those two cups of garri, at least moisten it with one-quarter to half a cup of water so that:

    1) the ingredients mix well
    2) the garri absorbs the water and softens
    3) you don't end up sipping and sipping water while eating
    4) you don't end up frustrated in the loo because your poop is like a rock.

  13. Wet your garri, strain the water, if still moist, allow it to air and spread it. It should be like cous cous

    Add your ingredients. Remove that atarodo.
