Acha pudding with bean cake. Kunu Acha da kosia By Deborah Bala

A Serving of  Acha pudding with bean cake (Akara balls)
Acha is the name in Hausa the scientific being Acha digitaria exiles(fonio or hungry rice) Acha is very nutritious and good for diabetic patients because of the low carbohydrate content.  It's very cheap and a must have for healthy meals. Acha can be made in tuwo form as if one is making  semolina, it can be made in a jellof form. 

For the Acha pudding, wash the Acha properly
because of sand, preferably use calabash so that the sand can sit at the button and be thrown out. Put water in a clean cooking pot, once the water boils add the Acha and keep stirring. Acha pudding is ready you can eat it with milk and sugar but for diabetic patients and health conscious persons its best to take it without sugar just add enough milk.

    Couscous is a wheat pasta while acha is an actual grain like rice or millet. Some consider it a variety of millet. If in Lagos, try Iddo. The tuwo rice sellers have it. My acha pudding recipe includes orange peel, nutmeg, 2 bay leaves, salt, clove and anise seed. Boil together for about 15 minutes and add coconut milk and creamed coconut to finish. Add sugar and a touch of evaporated milk to taste.

  12. It's actually called 'Hungary' rice, as in the country, and not 'hungry' the feeling. Nigerians mostly make this mistake.
    Acha is my mom's best food, cos she's on a strict diet, I've tried to eat it but really can't. It tastes like garri that is soaked with hot water cos of how garri-like it is.
    I can manage it if it's made in the jollof form with all them carrots, cabbage etc
    Nice one deborah.
