Auntie Shiela’s Angawamo

My mum is an excellent cook but i think i am the bomb!! ( hahahahahha, she will fight me if she reads this). Some days are just lazy for me, especially my off days, so i told her i had a craving for fufu with kontomire soup or angwamo so we settled on angwamo. If you dont know angwamo, then get off my page, ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ well unless you are not ghanaian. Angwamo is oil rice. The trick to a prefect angwamo is fry the raw rice in hot oil before the water is added. In Ghana, we usually add salted … Continue reading Auntie Shiela’s Angawamo

Spicy Atomo Chips

Atomo is sweet potatoe….i know you thought it was the local name for a scary big ingredient,sorry to dissapoint. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I love Atomo, my generous sweet friend Richard sent some huge ones my way this week.

Chicken light Soup

Chicken light soup is Sunday’s delight. It is that soup that you can smell from afar and tell your friends you have to go home. That soup that will make you not want to send your friends home. Try my simple chicken light soup and you will love it. It is easy and uses only fresh ingredients and no puree…. (I never said tomatoe puree isn’t good) I steam the chicken with salted beef because I love salt and it helps to bring out all the flavours without trying too hard or adding too much Ingredients 1 pound cut chicken … Continue reading Chicken light Soup

Indomie Egg Stir Fry

I am not a huge fan of indomie, but the few times I ate it, I realized I prefer it dry like the consistency of fried rice and not with all the sardine and bake beans people prepare it with. When I make and eat indomie, it really means there is nothing else in my fridge, absolutely nothing. I made this egg stir fry and I did enjoy it and I really hope you do too, after all we can’t waste several minutes of our time on badly cooked indomie ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ If you are not an indomie fan like me,try … Continue reading Indomie Egg Stir Fry

My favorite people in the world,Nigerians call it puff puff (yes it sounds like a cartoon name) I tried this recipe just a bit … Continue reading Bofrotย
