    You are just too much and very brilliant. I do appreciate your effort in educating us on food thro this forum. God bless you NKY? In addition please what is cilantro leaf,basil leaf and cayenne pepper in nigerian context

    • Nky Lily Lete
      April 5, 2014 / 11:47 pm

      Thanks dear. As for your question, Cilantro is spanish for coriander leaves and the closest to it in Nigeria is African basil(Ocimum gratissimum) a.k.a scent leaves(nchuawun or efirin).Basil leaf is African basil.Cayenne pepper is dried pepper in Nigerian context….Hope this was of help 🙂
