Vegetables Cornmeal With Fish

Image
I enjoyed this a lot as a child, ate lots of cornmeal s during the rains, Mostly cooked with broad pumpkin leaves. Green amaranth is also good when there's no pumpkin leaves. If you are from the South South, you may have tasted this delicacy. I can eat this for dinner because corn is not high in calories. We enjoyed this meal after so many years, I just remembered it this week. Cooking with kpanla fish makes this a very very affordable dish because kpanla fish is the most affordable fish in Nigerian market right now.
We have food is Nigeria abeg, in abundance.

What's The Difference Between Gravy, Sauce, Soup And Stew?

Hello Aunty, please do not laugh at me. I need help with differentiating some of our Nigerian meals, knowing where they qualify. Gravy, soup, stew and sauces, I don't know the difference. Who knows should please help a sister out. Also list Nigerian food that fall under these categories. Like white soup, does it come under sauce or soup? I'm confused because other world culture soups that

How To Preserve Water Leaf (Nigerian Spinach)

Image
I tried freezing because, of all the leafy vegetables used in Nigeria, water leaf is the most difficult to preserve. It has to be used straight from the market or the very next day else the leaves begin to drop and rot. This worked perfectly for me. The afang soup was to be cooked three days after shopping and this water leaf couldn't have lasted that long.

After shopping, the very next day, I had to wash, chop, pack in a bag and store in the freezer for two days. I expected the leaves to look wilted but they came out looking very fresh and green. Now I can buy water leaf ahead of time for weekend cooking.
Water leaf is used for cooking, softening other vegetables in Nigerian soups like fried afang, edikang ikong soup, groundnut afang soup and sometimes bitter leaf egusi soups.
Wrapping in paper bags before putting in cellophane is what I'll like to try next.

Christmas Food Made Easy! Any Idea?

Hurrah! Christmas is just around the corner again!  Christmas is unarguably the largest celebration in Nigeria, it is not only celebrated by Christians but by everyone in the country. Perhaps the main reason for the general acceptance is its timing, just six days before the year ends, what other time would you rather chill out and celebrate? I think we all agree that one of the reasons everyone loves Christmas celebration is the fact that New Year celebration is another remarkable festival enjoyed by everyone irrespective of religious beliefs, so while Christmas means so much for Christians, it also serves as an appetizer before the main meal (New Year) to non-Christians.
There have been several questions pointing to what Christmas means to Nigerians. If your guess is as good as mine, you would agree that there is something about Christmas that resonates with everyone’s soul in this part of the world. So as a proper Naija bred, I would say that Christmas is a season for jollification, s…
