Wara chicken bread rolls

If you've been to the northern part of Nigeria, the name wara wouldn't be an unfamiliar term to you. It's also not uncommon to find wara sellers, mostly fulani women hawking pots of white wara in street corners. Simply put, wara is locally made cheese which is commonly sold in parts of the country where there's access to fresh milk.
There are two major types of wara i.e wara milk and wara soya made from milk and soya respectively. The uncooked curd is known a cream cheese which is the major ingredient we'd be using for this. The cooked curd is what is mostly available by the sellers. It has a rubbery texture and is used in making beske, a golden brown snack made from deep fried cheese curd. If you can't find fresh wara milk around your vicinity, simply use any prepacked cream cheese you can afford. I love making this for breakfast and the aroma it leaves the house with is usually breathtaking. This i'm sure you'll love it too.
