How to Roast Nigerian Pear In A Fry Pan

Roast Nigerian pear with boiled yam
Roast Nigerian pear is best served with corn, boiled plantain or boiled yam. It can also be eaten with bread or drinking Garri.
Can anyone guess why I'm posting this delicacy today? I wanted to post a different delicacy but changed my mind. This is some form of punishment to those of us who wasted precious sleeping time fighting on the blog.

 While others lifted hands praising at different places of worship, you guys rushed home early and continued to exchange blows. I wanted us all
to go on hunger strike sef but changed my mind when I saw that you hugged and made up.

Today, no macaroni, rice or pounded yam for us, it's their fault. Let us all eat ube with boiled yam.
Roasting washed salted Nigerian pear in a hot pan
Continue to stir pears until they burn and then get soft. Stir atmost like three times in all. Allow intervals for a little burning.
Pear is well roasted. To enjoy some salt in there, put some marks on the pear with your kitchen knife while washing.

When you shop for Nigerian pear (ube). Go for darker ones. They taste better. Most Reddish ones get soft too quickly and are not as tasty.
Enjoy!

I would have loved to vote for Bonario, Ahdaisy, Ace and Jay if it were to be more than 1 for their sound advice, consistencey in what they believe in and be true to themselves but since it is 1 person, I will vote for Bonario....

      Hi, what you've probably been buying are either frankfurters or hotdogs flagged as sausages. Real beef sausages are not salty at all, infact they are very yummy. I always get mine from UTC on Awolowo road but I know they are also stocked in large supermarkets nationwide. Insist that you want the real deal when you get there.

      Hope this helps

      Wish u guys wd see d quality of meat they use in those 'sausages', u wd FLEE and not look back. Rather u do minced meat from d mkt. Do substitutes. Avoid those sausages! Worst ones are d ones in tins. Stay healthy people.

    Hehehe... ROTFLMAO! This post really cracked me up. I'm sure when Aunty OJAY was posting this, she was like: "since y'all choose 2 fight n tear each other up immediately after service, on a holy Sunday morning. I promise Y'all on the very beard of Abraham dat, No food 4 any of U until further notice." but later, she reconsidered n came back wit a face that says: "they are stil my Children, I can't watch them go hungry." and then to her Children (US) "Oya, make una come Chew pear n yam (yam of all things, not even something more palatable like Pear n Corn or Plantain.), who no like am fit go on hunger strike. I dey go sleep joor, una no go kii'mee" hehehe... Real Punishment dey ground 2day. This no be wetin me and Broda Bona dey chop. I dey go sleep too, HOLY COMMUNION DON DO FOR US. (thats a Holy 'FEAST' babes)

    VALENTINE.

  13. So we have permission to burn this one Aunty Eya? :D This is my first time hearing about this combo. Will try it as soon as I get close to any ube! My best way to enjoy ube is to keep the raw one inside my cheek till it melts. :) Let's see if ube and boiled yam will overtake that one.

    2. My ogbonge Madam at the top, I love burnt ube o! You know how we are always taught to be careful not to burn our food. While reading your explanation on leaving the ube to burn, I was like: come to think of it, we actually have permission to burn this one! With some oily ube, you'll be begging them to burn sef, and they will be wasting time. haha

    Ube needs steam to soften.
    collect little hot water from the boiling pot of yam with a bowl, put the ube inside and cover. It would soften before the yam cooks.
    Or, put the ube inside the pot of yam, remove, after 5 minutes, cover in a bowl, it would soften.
    or after the yam cooks, drain off the water in a bowl, and put the ube inside and cover, it would steam.
    or put the ube inside the pot of yam after draining and cover the pot. It would soften.
    yam and ube is not a good combo just as carrot and coconut was not. IMO.

      Thanks for these tips. I love using hot water and steam too but sometimes they get too soft. Roasting makes them kind of soft and a bit hard that's why I roast most times. I have a special frying pan for that tho.

      Thanks Aunty Eya. Roasting in a hot pan is my fav method.

    2. @Mrs Dayo, whenever you use steam, don't leave it for too long. Check for the level of softness at various intervals. You can still get the hard-soft combination when you use steam. Just try to time it.
