Kunu drinks are non alcoholic beverages made from grains with spices and herbs like ginger, cloves, and sometimes chillies and african negro pepper added for nutrition and flavour. Sweet potatoes is also a main ingredient in kunu, while malted rice can also be added for that malted feel and taste. They are very satisfying and great to take on a hot afternoon.

HOW TO BAKE CAKE IN A PRESSURE COOKER

Image
To bake with a pressure cooker, you need to take off the gasket and whistle from the pressure pot. You don't want your cooker to burst from pressure.  You also need something to insulate like I did here. The lid will still click lock without the gasket and whistle. I baked this cake to save gas. I have shared recipes of cakes baked on stove top before, this is not the first time. The size of cake is so small that I felt using an oven will just consume too much gas for something this tiny. On the burner it's like cooking any other meal. This cake turned out really good. I don't know if it's the pressure cooker or the small burner I used that gave such a perfect cake, we all love it.

This is my first attempt and I'm making just little. Masa is so delicious that right from the day I saw it chopped in bits and added to the suya I got outside, tasted, I fell in love and promised myself I was going to learn how to make this delicacy. If you like Nigerian puff puff, you'll love masa. I didn't use many ingredients, wanted to savour the natural taste of masa first before adding onion and others with my next try. I make puff puff a lot and one very common thing between masa and Nigerian puff puff is that same aroma after leaving to ferment and rise. When I opened the blended rice, the aroma confused me, I thought someone replaced my mixture with puff puff batter.

Masa is made with that special tuwo white rice used in making rice fufu (tuwo shinkafa). I was really

Vegetables Cornmeal With Fish

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.
