At Last, My puff puff is excellent!!!

Asaro (Yam Porridge) By Chidinma

Nutritious Yam Porridge
 Hello, Aunt Eya, this is the recipe.

Thank you, for having me over again. I'd like to introduce you to:

How To Roast Whole Chicken By Lizzy Obaze

My roast chicken being cut
very low fat and NO carbohydrate change of lifestyle.

Seasoning: curry powder, knorr cube, salt, garlic, dry herbs and jerk chicken seasoning.
