The Food I Saw Versus The Food I Cooked by gammarays(m): 10:03am On Aug 29, 2021
Intro:
I'm just a normal guy that can cook what I can eat. I just picked interest in cooking when I saw fellow guys preparing sumptuous delicacies.

Guys can cook nowadays o. Well I'll rate myself 20% when it comes to cooking because I don't have the required experience. I've eaten more food that I didn't cook than the one I cooked.

I bumped into the image below on Facebook and decided to try an improvised version since I can't get access to the main ingredients. I'll be brief as possible but I've written the full story on my lil blog below

I'm just a JJC in cooking, make Una no laugh me o �
@lalasticlala, help move this to the promised land or I add snake. grin

Yeah.....otipuri is cooked with par boiled grounded maize....beans and leaf (preferably bitter leaf).

I wonder why u added plantain to your achicha.

Normal achicha there's no added.

It's difficult for me to eat only beans without adding something

Boarding school days made me hate eating beans only

I see, I saw
I see the beans, agwa
I take the pot ite
I cook, me siwe ya

I cook the bean agwa ya mewe ihun owuon
Owuon
Owuon
It ite gi o di kwa nko?
Owuon, owuon...

Hahahahaaaa

After all the effort put into making what you saw, ended up like normal porridge beans...


On a more serious note.
I think your mistake was from the kind of beans you used and the ingredients. In the original one, it looks like they used black beans the Edo people call oyile or ukpele.

If it's not any of those beans, then they used kporokporo stem to achieve that color.
