Sorry beaf I dey sleep.
Tomatoes (sliced or tin)
- boil some rice on fire
- slice the onions, tomatoes and pepper.
- boil little oil and add some concentrated tomatoes according to your taste.
- I like my knorr to melt right in front of my eyes so I add it as soon as the oil is hot.
- Now put the sliced ingredients inside. Wait till everything mixes to your taste.
- Don't forget to put some salt.
- Take the rice off, wash it and put it inside your stew, adding some water. (In this case I avoid adding more salt because the stew does enough for the flavour)
Wait till your rice is cooked to your taste and VOILA, your jollof is ready!
This for those days you haven't got a large quantity of time at your hand and you just want to eat something fast but at the same time, delicious.

# Akanmu A.K.A Ogi
If someone can help and tell me how to prepare that, I'd be really grateful! My naija hubby complains about the food but can't explain how to make it
An oyinbo wife who needs help
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Beaf: 10:47pm On Jul 09, 2009|
. . .And you're mentioning Akanmu and garri for drinking? Kai! Is your load near the door?
My dear, please post an article asking how to prepare sheokoyokoto; you need that badly
Where is your man from?
Get advise from Michellin89, FL Gators, *Hauwa*, IfyAlways; these are smart.
Avoid argent, she will make your man run like 404 --- noodles ke!
How I wish the grand $Osisi was here

Quote from: Miss_Ife on Today at 05:50:21 AM#Akanmu A.K.A Ogi
eheh, thanks, i can cook a few things already (but will take your advuce on the sheokoyokoto ).
About the garri for drinking well the deal is : just mix it with water/milk/sugar and drink, right?
As for the akamu my hubby says it's made of corn flour, but that's all i got from him, the thing is I am sure that I will be able to cook it but i don't even know what it is
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Beaf: 1:39am On Jul 10, 2009|
Miss_Ife:Yes its corn flour. You should be able to find it in African shops (I must say, I've never come across it in the UK). I also think you'll have better luck in your search if you call it pap or ogi.
You prepare and serve it exactly the way custard is prepared and served (both being cornflower).
Akanmu can be served with any of stewed beans, moin moin or akara (really depends on where your husband is from or your/his taste).
Akanmu is off-white with a slightly sour taste and has about the same consistency as custard.
Although everyone eats it, akanmu is used as a filling food by the poor. . . Could be the reason why your husband passes over the details.
ps. Tell us the "effects" of sheokoyokoto on your poor hubby when you've tried it
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Miss_Ife(f): 4:09am On Jul 10, 2009|
Thanks for those details! I thought Akamu was more like a thin porridge (without eggs) rather than custard. I only have regular corn flour here (not from african shop) so I guess it won't have this special sour taste, Does it come from fermentation?
I might be able to do something that my husband will like though
p.s.: what is the sheokoyokoto ?
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by spikedcylinder: 11:57am On Jul 10, 2009|
Fried yam and v.oil nko?
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Beaf: 8:59pm On Jul 10, 2009|
Without Efo riro? Fail. . .
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Beaf: 9:11pm On Jul 10, 2009|
Sheokoyokoto is as old as time.
It is a non-lethal weapon of last resort, primarily employed to deliver a pre-emptive and unshakable blow to ones love rivals.
A concoction of herbs and other sweetnesses that knock seven senses out of your man; leaving you as the drooling focus of his attentions, season in - season out.
It does not harm your foes, but will rattle your beloveds eyes back to front.
It is the meanest love portion.
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Beaf: 9:16pm On Jul 10, 2009|
No, it isn't custard at all. You are right akanmu is fermented corn flour, so normal flour won't cut it.
I've forgoten exactly how its made, but should be able to get back to you on that.
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Miss_Ife(f): 1:25am On Jul 11, 2009|
aaah ok, love potion! I don't think we'll need that now (though, maybe when he'll get tired of my "food experiences", )
As for the akamu, I will wait for the details.
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Beaf: 12:41am On Jul 12, 2009|
Here you go Ife.
How to make akanmu
[li]Get a large quantity of dry grains of corn[/li]
[li]Wash in clean water[/li]
[li]Soak in a covered container of water for 2-3 days[/li]
[li]Manually pulp the softened grains by rubbing between your palms[/li]
[li]Grind to a paste[/li]
[li]Sieve to remove coarse bits of grain outer skin[/li]
[li]Allow to settle[/li]
[li]Pour out water and dry[/li]
Prepare similar to custard. . .
Hehe. Fill the bowls and supply the moin moin!
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Miss_Ife(f): 1:38am On Jul 15, 2009|
Great! thanks, please don't talk about moin moin though, I tried it for the first time yesterday and it was a real mess (the paste remaines liquid even after cooking), I'm so ashamed
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by uzwu: 9:52am On Jul 15, 2009|
Eya pele. Maybe you added tooooooooo much water.
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by TOYOSI20(f): 12:45pm On Jul 15, 2009|
I cook in large quantities and then just bring 'em out and heat up when i need to, like jollof rice, soups and all that, saves time, and stuff,
But the easiest food Ever that tastes good, and is satisfying @ da same time has gat to be dodo!!
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by shilling(f): 9:01am On Jul 16, 2009|
Kpokpogarri? Just wondering, what's that?
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by Kinkinatus(m): 6:20pm On Jun 05, 2012|
So where are the various 10 minute naija meals? All I see is whether rice should be washed before cooking etc. C'mon lets see more recipes.
|Re: 10 Minute Nigerian Recipes by ogugua88(f): 7:43am On Jun 06, 2012|
What of yam and vegetable?
I boil one yam and drain it once it's cooked and soft. Cover the pot to retain the heat. In a pan, heat up small red oil and some onion and allow them to saute (you can do this while the yam cooks to save time). Add the oil and onions to the pot of yam. Add a little spinach (or whichever greens you like), crawfish, ground pepper, and either maggi or salt to your desired taste. Heaven
