DRIED TILAPIA COCONUT RICE

It's dried tilapia coconut rice because it was cooked with dried tilapia as the source of protein. Coconut rice is best cooked with dried fish if there is no fish, crayfish has to be added to get that local Nigerian coconut rice flavour.

RICE MOI MOI RECIPE

RICE moi moi is a type of moi moi that I make by grinding grains of rice together with ingredients and wrapping up the mixture in leaves to steam and cook.  My rice moi moi can be served without an accompaniment but I love to serve this blended rice wraps with some protein and vegetable stir fry. 
A trial of this my new creation rice moi moi will convince you that this is moin moin. If you can and if you like the locust beans taste, try serving it with locust beans sauce and

UGU LEAF STEW COOKED WITH FRESH TOMATOES EGGS AND FISH

Image
Ugu leaf vegetable stew can be served with rice, boiled unripe plantain, boiled yam and any fufu of choice. This stew is easy to cook. We have a recipe on ugu leaf stew posted here on the blog already. The reason we are sharing this recipe too is because that did not include tomatoes and eggs. For a change, after cooking this ugu leaf stew, you may also try the vegetable stew on the old post and see which you enjoyed most. I can't really say because I love both and they are both very easy and quick to cook.
If you have oil, salt and seasoning cubes at home, with 

HOW TO MAKE TOMATOES STEW WITHOUT FRYING

Image
These four methods of preparing fresh tomatoes before cooking Nigerian tomato stew, they work for me every time. They never fail to deliver: I can't even remember the last time I had to waste gas or electricity boiling tomatoes till dry before making my stew. There's no need for that anymore...
1. Boiling the washed tomatoes before blending.
2. Blending before boiling but, straining out the excess water once the foam is gone and paste separates from liquid.

NIGERIAN CONCOCTION RICE (LOW COST RECIPES)

Image
This yummy pot of  Nigerian yellow rice cooked with palm oil and proteins, without tomatoes is very tasty and filling. With just 8 ingredients, your delicious rice is cooked. Great when you crave rice on a tight budget. Some call it MTN rice because of the bright yellow colour. It can be cooked very peppery with assorted fresh peppers or just moderately spicy. The more the proteins used the better it tastes. With just ground crayfish or dried prawns alone, this delicacy can be cooked and served with pride. This is another way

MY NIGERIAN WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY DAY 26

Brunch and dinner for yesterday Thursday, March 29. Before the carrot and cucumber smoothie was ready, I ate 2 boiled eggs sha. Dinner was just 1 cup of boiled rice and beans with stew and a side of cucumber slices. E nor bellefull me but I just maintainnnn...

After yesterday's planksand all, I couldn't find the energy to work out today, make I rest abeg. Still gliding on 80 kg this morning, I snacked on roasted groundnuts at night (Not advisable though) God be praised for how good I feel about my size as I look forward to my desired final destination which is 76kg by God's grace oh! Then I can increase my portions a bit and just maintain that. What ever you desire to weigh is possible, you alone have the power to get yourself there or to just give up and stay where you are just wishing. We can do this. I want to try and see if it's possible for me to lose the weight and return again to 76 kg (That's what I weighed after my first pregnancy. I remember nursing my firs…

Day 25 OF MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY WITH NIGERIAN FOOD

Image
I'm so so excited. When I stood on the bathroom scale and saw the figures, I just smiled to myself and concluded that my goal to drop down to 80kg by weekend is realisable and very very close. The results are slow and steady but sure. I won't rush this because I'm not looking at short term weight loss. It is a lifestyle change. I want to permanently change some things about my size and live healthy. Some friends are suggesting different dieting methods to help me lose the weight faster but that's not what I want. Losing it faster and gaining all back is what I have done in the past, in 2010 precisely when I lost some 10 kg in two weeks for a major event and right after that event, the cravings won't let me sleep at night. I wanted so much to swallow something with some soup, I craved for normal Nigerian jollof rice and fried rice like wetin? Couldn't even last one week longer before nI crashed like a... (Thinking of the word to use here sef). So, I returned to…

How To Cook Roasted Coconut Rice

Image
Roasted coconut rice has that extra roasted aroma that makes you want to eat some more. I wanted to
cook coconut rice but in a different way and while staring at the coconut lying on the table, I just went..."Why not roast the coconut first before blending?" I
quickly picked it up and started cleaning to cook before the idea disappears.

It's very easy to cook and the whole family enjoyed this flavour. When coconut is roasted, it brings sout very good aroma, imagine how it will taste after blending. The roasted coconut milk I tasted after sieving, it was so good, couldn't share. Great if you don't want to sweeten your milk. The roasting gives it both inviting aroma and
