NUTMEG CAKE (NIGERIAN) BAKED IN A PRESSURE COOKER

Image
The few ingredients used here are proof that this is a very easy delicious cake to bake. I can eat this particular cake because it's not too sweet. I need to remind us that to bake in a pressure cooker, you need to remove the gasket and whistler from the pot. After discovering how much gas is saved when small cakes are baked in a pressure pot, I don't think I can go back to baking my tiny cakes in the oven. My oven consumes so much gas in those 45 minutes of baking a small cake. I'll leave that for when we bake with more than one baking pan. With a pressure pot, I make use of just one burner. That is like using just the quantity of gas needed to 

YAM PEPPER SOUP FOR NURSING MOMS

Image
Yam pepper soup for new mothers is cooked without oil, can be cooked with any meat of choice. It goes well with chicken (local chicken not broilers). You can use goat meat, ram, beef, dried fish, fresh fish and so on but I think fish and chicken are healthier options. Different parts of Nigeria serve this meal to women who just gave birth to babies but, there are slight variations with ingredients and consistency. The name says it's great for nursing moms. I am not nursing any baby right now but made it because it's good for everyone. Very nutritious. Yam pepper soup is one of Nigeria's many delicacies prepared especially for postpartum moms, to help

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.

CHICKEN WHITE SOUP

Image
Chicken white soup and fresh fish white soup are the easiest to cook of all Nigerian white soup varieties because they both taste really good without the addition of all other proteinous ingredients like crayfish, fish, stockfish Etc. The chicken alone in there is enough to give you a delicious pot of soup. Even a learner in the kitchen can cook Nigerian chicken white soup. We have a goat meat white soup recipe posted on the blog already and that too

HOW TO MAKE MOIN MOIN WITH RAW EGG AND BEANS

Image
Moin moin recipes we posted on the blog all have beans as the major ingredients and they came out perfect even though none was cooked with a mixture of raw eggs and beans, like the coconut milk moin moin. The popular Nigerian moin moin recipe is the one that adds hard boiled eggs while wrapping the moin moin.





This weekend, I made very fluffy, delicious and excellent moi moi by just adding whisked raw eggs to the ground beans and whisking even more to get air into the mixture and make it light. It worked so well. By the time I finished uploading the pics on Facebook, the very large pot of moi moi ws cleared by my family who kept picking and going for more. I enjoyed mine with soaked garri, while some served themselves with pap and moin moin, others just ate the moin moin with no accompaniment and it was really delicious. If it turned out not so good, I would have warned so you don't waste your time trying. But this one is some moin moin recipe everyone needs to try.

Image
Okpa (Recipe below) can be eaten at anytime of day. It is made from okpa beans known as Bambara beans/nuts. There are so many benefits of eating bambara nuts, whether boiled, cooked as okpa, or roasted. These Bambara nuts boost blood production, they are rich in Iron.They supply remedy for lack of sleep, help treat insomnia and get your body relaxed for a good night sleep. Help fight arthritis, okpa reduces the danger of stomach cancer, lowers cholesterol and even fights anaemia also known as kwashiorkor. Bambara beans are rich in antioxidant properties that help you fight quick aging, they are rich in proteins, carbohydrates and varying minerals. They are also reported to be therapeutic... Try them and see.  Well, I don't cook with cellophane bags and do not encourage anyone to do so at all at all BUT for this particular okpa, I chose to go the nylon bag way. I wanted the exact look I see on those okpa sellers' heads around Area 1. I don't even know where to find
