  29. Wonderful! wonderful!! recipes. Trust me to visit this site everyday as I am always at a loss of ideas and hubby is already complaining that my food is getting monotonous. Not easy combining 9 - 6 job with ensuring variety, is it?
    please, do an article on best ways to preserve good food and still get fresh taste. Should I "half cook" and freeze?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks dearie, it is not easy combining 9 - 6 job with family , but it is ''do-able'' :).
      If you'll be cooking any meals with vegetables, such as Nigerian soups, make sure the veggies doesn't cook for too long, so that when you reheat it from the freezer, it doesn't taste bland or overcooked.
      The freezer is every woman's best friend, but don't half cook your food, try investing in a microwave(if you don't have one already) it's a great way to reheat food without over cooking it.

  32. I'm getting married to a lovely nigerian man... I want to be able to cook the food he loves... Everything looks delicious but I have on question. I'm allergic to curry...is there anything that I could substitute the curry powder with? Without sacrificing taste.

    1. Hi Kathryn, congrats on your upcoming marriage.
      You can leave out curry in almost all Nigerian recipes, but with Nigerian fried rice, curry is essential.
      Curry is actually a mixture of several spices, do you know which spice you are actually allergic to, here is a basic homemade curry recipe. You can omit the spice that you might be allergic to and make your own from scratch.
      2 tablespoons whole cumin seeds, toasted
      2 tablespoons whole cardamom seeds, toasted
      2 tablespoons whole coriander seeds, toasted
      1/4 cup ground turmeric
      1 tablespoon dry mustard
      1 teaspoon cayenne

    Nky, I quite agree with you on the ease in your cooking steps. But I must commend your even more for the basic and a major contribution to the growing number of busy Nigerian youths in several parts of the world. Particularly Nigerian Youths that missed out learning how to cook from their parents while growing up for one reason or the other. They now have a second chance. This is saying a BIG "Thank You"on their behalf. You and your peers have filled up a steep void in our food culture.

  38. Hi I'm a Nigerian boy who hasn't cooked for a good 8 years since I left Nigeria and when I tried the Moi Moi recipe it was quite a disaster! The paste came out too rough and it didn't taste anything like moi moi! Please help!

    Replies
    1. Hi Ebuka, I don't think you made use of the recipe on our page.
      And if you made a paste with ''beans powder'', then you can't expect to get the same taste as the real thing, cos it contains preservatives.
      Next time, make use of fresh beans and follow our recipe as it is, and you won't have any problems.
