Bintdawood:
Kosai in Hausa, Akara in pidgin English [Yoruba]πŸ˜€
The picture of the Kosai you made with peanut oil shows it's indeed well made and I like the way the smell usually wafts through the air to embrace the person frying it, the kitchen and dining room, etc.

Just a quick NOTE here though, and I want YOU to re-edit the WRONG information in your post that has been there since April 2024. Let me school you with some insightful evidence.

YES, the fried beans delicacy is called Kosai in Hausa language, even right up to the Northern parts of Ghana (Gonja) due to the influence of long-distance Hausa traders (or the assimilated Agalawa or Nigeriene Tuareg caravan traders of Katsina and Kano in Hausaland) in that area of Ghana.

But "Akara" is an original Yoruba word for fried bean cake NOT Pidgin English, and Akara is even CLEARLY listed in the first ever Yoruba to English dictionary of 1833. You can easily download a FREE PDF copy of the oldest Yoruba to English dictionary via a Google Search online. A lot of Yoruba words are being used as loan words (borrowed) by some other ethnic groups and folks in Nigeria due to their interactions as a result of British Colonialism, such as "Egusi" and "Oga" which are also listed in the same 1833 Yoruba to English dictionary. But these Yoruba loan words CANNOT be found in the oldest dictionaries of these other ethnic groups indicating that they borrowed it from the Yorubas. These ignorant younger ones from some of these ethnic groups like the Ibos had to be shown these CLEAR facts recently in 2024 when they started claiming that Egusi is a word from there ethnic group but knowledgeable Yoruba folks uploaded clear screenshot and documents showing that Egusi is not just a Yoruba word but has been eaten for centuries as a soup thickener.

Aka-ra (simply means to COUNT and BUY)
Aka (Count) Ra (Buy). The process of counting and buying the fried bean cakes.


Alubosa for instance is a loan word used by Yorubas just like Albasa is a loan word used by Hausas but which is of Arabic origin. There are some Yoruba words that also have Arabic loan derivatives and are used interchangeably. This is a result of the strong presence of Islam in Yorubaland (Oyo Empire) for over 500 years now after it was brought by Islamic traders and preachers from Mali Empire, long before Uthman Danfodio's great grand parents were even born. So, it is always good to keep these facts in mind about the origins of words.


Hope that helps.

Bintdawood:
Tuwon shinkafa with EgusiπŸ˜‹
May God continue to bless the hands that feed us🀲🀲
@Bintdawood,

That's truly impressive. Egusi (melon) with Tuwon shinkafa... What vegetable(s) was used to make that Egusi soup? Is it Zogale (Moringa) or what? I never knew that some of you folks in Northern Nigeria add Egusi to your soups. While traveling internationally, I like to sample unique cuisines from around the cultures I come in contact with. It'd love to try your Tuwon shinkafa and Egusi combo on any of my leisure travels to the North.

Second are you an original Hausa (Kanawa) OR a non-Hausa like Aisha Yesufu.

Pls can you drop the exact recipe you used to make your Gwate?
I had this last when I was a kid. Got hold of some Fonio seeds and all I do is make it like oats.
Help me relive my children pls.
Sorry,my reply is coming late.
I first washed my bones,season and boiled. Then in went my tomatoes, onions, pepper and garden egg(the small ones,bitter ones). Let it boil then add the yakuwa. Then your washed Acha and let it cook on low heat. Add your veggies (spinach, cabbage and spring onions). That is all
