Fried Rice With Akara, Soy sauce And Coated Chicken

fried rice with akara and coated chicken
There are many methods of cooking fried rice,
depending on what you want. For me it's how and what the girls want that I cook. My ingredients change according to the mood. Sometimes they don't want red kidney beans and I use cooked and fried cow liver. The color also depends on the brand  of curry used.

This blog has taught me a lot. Thank you guys. I never knew Benny spice, I learnt on this blog. I never used soy sauce in my house. I tasted it only when I eat out. Now I know how to use and enjoy it at home. For mivina spice, I got but haven't used it yet, When I do, I'll let you guys know, and will share the pics. My cooking skills have really improved, courtesy: you guys sharing different recipes with us. Thanks.
Eya was a good cook, now she is a better one.

    1. No, Sweet16mum, it didn't take the place of vegetable oil. I added 2 dessert spoons of soy sauce to vegetables. You can see the dark soy sauce on the veggies in the fry pan. There's a little oil on the bottom of the pot.

  2. I had to scroll up several times to see if it is really Akara. Hm, Aunty Eya U dey o. Looks so good. Pls how do you dry breadcrumbs? Must it be in the oven? I tried Microwaving the bread, it ended up being burnt bread. :-(

    1. Thanks Ahdaisy. Sometimes I dry in a fry pan. Place the slices of bread in the pan and continue to flip sides so it doesn't get burnt. When dry, I remove from heat and allow to cool a bit and harden even more, grinding is very easy when bread is dry. Use a dry fry pan with low heat. It dries well. Wheat bread doesn't dry fast. Use ordinary mallam bread or french bread.

  4. Hello Eya, this was exactly what I made today without the akara o, I just didn't remember to take pics. I made my breadcrumbs by blending/pulsing little bits of bread. It came out perfectly. Thanks Eya.

    1. Hi Chommy, I wish you remembered to take pics. That would have helped us compare notes and decide on which to do for Easter.

    Akara? My first time of hearing it can be served along with rice to the family or guests...personally I eat it like that whenever I have leftovers because it is still the same beans to me. I am learning everyday. Thanks for sharing Eya.

    Hello eya, had made akara for breakfast yesterday. Do u guys know instead of turning the blended beans(in a mortar) to infuse air, dt one can use baking powder. It makes my akara rise up like puff puff, all beautiful and brown and the best part is dt the baking powder doesn't change d taste. Just tot I shld share this. Also made cake yesterday too and coconut chips. It was rather fun. Eya, keep it up. Creative Mom

      U re welcome. Glad to be part of the family. As for the quantity of baking powder, I really have no idea. I guess a lil quantity shld do. I have beans tat were literally attacked by weevils, so I'm dedicated these beans to akara/moi moi. Eya, pls do u knw anyway of conserving beans so that these insects don't get to it. Tnks. Creative Mom

  13. Put beans in a plastic airtight container and store in the freezer.

    Another way of preserving beans to keep out the insects is to store the beans in a jerry can, maybe 4-10 ltrs can. The kind you use to store water in the fridge, before you close airtight, pour a large quantity of ground dried pepper and shake vigorously, then close airtight. It works like magic!
