Back then during my NYSC at Calabar, I was cooking Eguisi soup and my neighbor dashed me plenty pumpkin leaf (ugu). I decided to use all the vegetable in order not to waste any because I don't have refrigerator to preserve the vegetable. The Eguisi soup automatically turned to vegetable soup.

This doesn't count as a mistake.

It was more like pre-planned or premeditated.

Used hunger eyes bought 4 noodles with 2 eggs.
Needed to fry, but no groundnut oil. Went to my side chick neighbour and asked her to help me with groundnut oil. She asked me to go inside her room and collect it.
Na so I ended up using liquid shampoo to fry noodles.
Worst of it all was I ate half of the noodles before I could detect the acidic taste. Went back to my neighbour and asked her to give me the oil again. She brought another bottle different from the one I collected myself.
I fainted.

I felt there wasn’t much salt to the rice and kept adding salt till I felt satisfied. Rice was ready and everyone had to saved their lives first instead of dying from too much salt in the liver. cheesy

Too many I can’t remember them all now .

What happens to the odour of the kerosene, if I may put it that way?

Didn't you pick up the odour before pouring it in?


It was a very silly mistake, I had the same kind of container for kerosene and groundnut oil. I had realised it was the wrong one I picked, the same moment some drops had landed in the food.

You know how kerosene is, a few drops is enough cause damage cry

Mehn grin grin I remember years back I was cooking indomie and back then we usually beat eggs and pour it directly into the indomie for it to cook instead of frying separately. So on that unfortunate day I mistakenly added half of our dry pepper into the egg sad. I got confused and still went ahead and poured the egg into indomie thinking it would still be okay. I swear people could smell the pepper outside the kitchen. I eventually tried to force myself and my brothers to eat it but we couldn't lipsrsealed. I ending up forfeiting our lunch that day cry

That is the idea. The meat will boost the immune system of the malaria sufferer. Chloroquine + protein from the meat.

Nice one.

I remember when I wanted to prepare this Okra + pepper stew. I had no idea how to go about it.
So, I just poured the okra into the pot, added water. I steamed it for a while and later poured plenty pepper inside.

They sha ate it with joy together with the watery, undone wheat I prepared

Mine was cameroun pepper. I cooked indomie and added three 'ten naira' own. I did not know what made me experiment with three, but i think what pushed me was how beautiful a cameroun peppered indomie looked like. But this one was truly a definition of not all that glitters is gold.
I swallowed the first, second and third spoon successfully. It was when the fourth hit my throat that i discovered tears was slithering down my cheeks. I started feeling hot all of a sudden, i pulled off my shirt, seems it got worse. Then i commot boxers, no improvement. I now said let me go outside to receive fresh air if it will be better, no way. I con dey ask myself, is this how people go mad?
Well i took a very cold bath and i got really better. So, at the end of the day i went back to finish the food. It looked so beautiful.

Putting sugar inside a pot of soup thinking it was salt.

Using groundnut oil to cook soup and couldn't swallow eba with it
If u live outside naija where it hard to get palm oil, u can add lots of oil and fry your tomatoes.
Scope out the oil and use to make soups like okro and egwusi.
