I don't like it now because it makes me nauseous. My old man used to put ginger or pepper(it made him nauseous without it) and I got used to that as a child.

I love pap very much but with much sugar. I dont like it with milk because it changes its taste. I love it on Saturdays because after taking a bowl-ful of it, it makes me sleep deeply.
Re: why do people hate pap (Ogi) so much? by maurchy: 2:30pm On Jul 19, 2010
though the lumpy akamu can be verrry disgusting. you just have to know how to make it well before it can be lump-less.

I may have to revisit this thing, maybe I didn't make it correctly lol. I definitely wasn't flooding it with milk and sugar.

you don't have to flood it with milk and sugar. it's still nice without anything. the nearly bittersweet sour taste is still okay.

I think most people just find the smell repulsive.
Re: why do people hate pap (Ogi) so much? by sophy09: 6:14pm On Jul 19, 2010
I love pap especially the white one with a lot of sugar. I don't like adding milk to my pap. The thing I like most about it is that it make me feel sleepy. I take it most times when I cannot sleep.

Pap is good and I grew up on it back in the days. I've not taken it for some time now because it is not readily available where I am currently. I feel the reason why many folks on this thread dislike Ogi or akamu is because of the way it is prepared by different people. When I was in boarding house in Ogun State in the early 90's, I hated the Pap that was served by the school authorities. It was watery and you were also given two small akara balls to go along with it . Those were the days of suffering as a secondary school student. However, when I went home for holidays, My step mum prepared the Ogi in a superb way. It was thick and she served it with delicious Agoyin beans and sugar.

It should be noted that there are different kinds of pap. I don't like the white pap made from white maize [ I guess this is the type of pap that many nairalanders find it nauseous and do not like ]. I love the ogi made from Yellow Maize and Guinea Corn [ This variety of Pap is reddish in colour ]. The Yellow Ogi is my favourite and we used to have loads of it stored in our freezer. Ogi is very nutritious and I love taking it topped up with Bournvita and granulated sugar [ not the unhealthy Dangote sugar o ]. Cheers.
