Danwake and abacha although they say, one man's meat is another's poison
Danwake! I get goosebumps at the smell or sight of it.
I can’t eat awara (tofu right?) ,the one made from soya bean. Chai! I feel like throwing up now at the thought of it.

I’ve never tasted Abacha so I can’t say anything about it yet.

Editan with starch?
Akwa Ibom no dey eat starch na.

What particular food do you guys refer to as starch

Starch is just a complex form of carbohydrate, that is present in many food of plant origin, like rice, potatoes, yam, wheat, millet, maize, cassava, etc.
It's not limited to any particular food.
So, saying "Akwa Ibiom no dey eat starch" doesn't make any sense actually.
Nigerians are just fond of abusing words

Osu pigs don't like it at all.

I have seen many yoruba commenters here declaring their hate for okpa and abacha, and no Igbo person has so far attacked them..

But hate-filled and animal-like tribal bigots like you believe any Igbo who doesn't like your ugly-looking ewedu & amala should be killed.

I'm not blaming you anyway; it's in your disgusting nature

I've seen someone looking for gluten free bread at a store .. I wonder if that Nigerian also eat GMO oyinbo man food..

Bros, just dey play....
Normal chicken is supposed to grow in like 6 months. But the ones they use for Macdonalds KFC grows in 1 month. The chicken is still biologically a baby, but it is full adult size. That's why the bones are soft. The chemical used to expand that chicken is till in the chicken. You eat that chicken a d you too expand fast like the chicken. Other fertilisers in other foods also affect you the eater this is why forcing people start getting all this gluten problems. They eat too many chemicals in their fake diet. You don't know that Nigerian guys diet history. But it very well can be the case.

Ah! Absorbent paper towel and little oil... That's a great way to get minimal oil in the plantain.

You like wheat bread with peanut butter too? I guess great minds "eat alike."

In my travels around some countries, I always like to taste the street foods and cuisines of the different cultures and it's been a fantastic way of appreciating the skills that go into developing these foods.

Lol... grin That cracked me up. So, "YOUR EYES eat first." Folake, It seems you're a "very visual person" as well. A significant part of your love language must be embedded in visual aesthetics.

You seem to have grown up knowing only the Amala made from unripe plantains in your city or State of residence based on your mum's culinary preferences.


Last but not least, I suppose you're referring to wheat swallow made from whole wheat flour in your last paragraph. Whole wheat is actually made from wheat bran and germ combo.

Amala however isn't made from whole wheat flour. Just as I stated in the last post, Amala comes ONLY in 3 major swallow varieties among Yoruba folks namely:

1. Amala ogede is made from ELUBO OGEDE (unripe plantain flour) which is a shade of brown color.
2. Amala isu is made from ELUBO ISU (yam flour) which is brown in color.
3. Amala lafun is made from ELUBO LAFUN (cassava flour) which is white in color.



Sorry. I slept off early last night.

Yes, the greatest way. If I ever crave fried plantain, I have to eat it hot straight from the fire. Otherwise, it'd be soggy for me and I'd lose interest. I also microwave fried plantain when it's warm or cold. lipsrsealed

Yes yes. You have great taste. kiss Wheat bread is the truth.

Oh that's nice. I'm very careful of street foods cos I have sensitive stomach.

Yeah. My eyes eat first. My main love language is Acts of Service/Gifting. That alone is visual. Seeing is believing right? grin
I also like fine things, fine men etc.

Yes. I know amala made from only unripe plantain. My folks used to buy lots of unripe plantain, sun dry and do the plantain flour thingy.

You're right. Wheat swallow. I ate a bit of wheat swallow in my childhood. I haven't eaten it since then.

Thank you for explaining that. Appreciate it.

Owo and starch

White okra soup no oil

Garry and fish

How on earth do people enjoy eating these aforementioned food? If e near maut na vomit be that ooo

Exactly

A other is Ewedu and Amala...how do people eat back of Yam that should be given to goats to eat and dried

Starch, I find that extremely crazy! You use starch for industrial production and clothes eating it is just madness

Also, Ukwa! I find that tasteless ....


But in my list
Ewedu and Amala
Starch
Ukwa
That Yoruba marshes beans
Then beans and bread! That's dirty !

Pizza. I still don't understand how people enjoy eating it.

The other day I took my son to eat dodo pizza. They are another pizza franchise.

I pointed out to him that there is clearly a difference between their pizza and domino's. He had already noted it. Domino's has a much drier crust.

I am saying this because I would say domino's are the entry level mass market pizza.

I know, but from food manufacturing point of view, there are no artificial ingredients in indomie, I just want you to spread more of your misinformation. All of you should better be careful about some erroneous lies you see online. Indome is from wheat flour, not different from your normal bread or biscuits.

First of all, don't you know the meaning of the word, "artificial"?

Domino's is worse. They'll keep adding unnecessary ingredients to it until you can't even point it what it takes like anymore.

If I'm hungry, I prefer eating real food. All these pizza, shawarma, fries...etc, are what most ladies prefer to real food. That's what's giving them protruding stomach.

Well, i'm getting a bit tight at the waist.
Noodles and Abacha are as good as nothing, when I eat them.
Rice, plantain, moi-moi, wheat bread are very filling.
-
Eba, yam, fufu causes instant constipation for me, and I've stopped eating those.

Getting a bit tight at the waist might be as a result of eating late at night.

You might want to eat 3 hours before your bedtime.

Wait, is company-sealed juice natural? I mean, is such juice the same as home-made juice extracted directly from fruits?

Instant noodles, for instance, often contain artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives to enhance taste and extend shelf life. These additives could be considered artificial elements within the overall product.

okay then ... But gluten comes from wheat, barley et al .. So how does it have an association with the BMO foods ...

I really still don't understand the correlation
