Amala and ewedu soup

SteffySoFynSoFly said...

My grand ma will always make porridge plantain stocked with dryfish and stockfick for me every morning. I couldn't have enough of her well cooked porridge, may God rest her gentle soul. Thinking back now brings back a lot of sweet memories of how she argues with my mom.
Mumsy always have this idea that she was spoiling me way too much.

Atheist. said...

Too numerous to mention.
I remember her warning me not to eat pussy tho.

SteffySoFynSoFly said...

But why do most grandparents pamper their grand kids too much na? Any grandnparent here to shed more light on this?

My grand ma cook favorite meal ke. Someone that will cook 100 cups of rice and use 1 cube of Maggi? She will tell you it is more healthy... hahahahaha.
She will cook soup that I won't understand, or know the name cos she mixed different veggies for different soups inside one pot of soup. Hahaha.
I love her all the same oh, God bless and continually keep her for us abeg.

Errrm, so in a few years such posts will read "mention a meal which your GRAND DAD cooked that was your favorite" as per wife not cook. Hahahahah

Fufu and ogbono soup, I almost eat myself to a stupor one day, cos I just couldn't get enough. Those were the days...........

Oby O said...

My beloved grandma God bless her soul.. She used to make Abacha and fish, native jollof rice and moi moi for us whenever she came visiting or when we vist her.. I miss her terribly..

Sexy Ebony said...

I can't even pictured my grand parents,except my maternal grandma,though I was little then ,the only thing I could remember den,anytime she bath I always feel peppery on my eyes# funny though# .

Ideato/ilaje blood said...

Didn't experience such....

Loveme Jeje said...

My granny can cook soup (ugwu soup) everyday when i was in the village before she passed away. She gave every one of us names. My name is just following me everywhere.

julia christopher said...

oh I remember my granny's jollof rice,with lots of small black fish,she would put all the ingredients in the boiled rice together before heating the pot of rice lol....very delicious!

School Life said...

Pounded yam soup. Sometimes that time, she'll wake me late at night so I can eat.

Chiamaka L said...

Mine is between ofe akwu and ofe onugbu. I truly can't choose. Though as a kid it was ofe nsala. Proudly Anambra chic

NORTH DAKOTA SIOBHAN said...

I come from a long line of cooks.. cooks not chefs..
The best ofe onugbu(bitter leaf soup) i have eaten till date are the ones made by my grandma..
She cooks the best soups.. From onugbu, to nsala, oha, and my favorite jollof rice.. Oh my goodness!
Her cooking is second to none..
I'm glad She passed it down to my mum, then to me..
I will never ever forget her dishes, for as long as i live.

Jasmine said...

My granny and mum can cook confirm yam pottage with vegetable and enuf fish.

omonye enas said...

Bangs and starch

Misy queend said...

I remember Palm oil rice and I remember tasting pepper and crayfish .

Horlarjummie said...

My granny's pounded yam with efo riro is always on point.

Debbie me said...

Lol. My grandma na character herself, cos the reverse is the case when it comes to cooking. You dare not enjoy her food cos her food na drug itself. Can you imagine eating unwashed bitter leaf soup? That's my grandma for you. She would slice the bitter leaf like vegetable and mehnn, food is ready.

ADAOBI ANEKWE said...

I can't forget my Granny's Akidi *very tasty food* and Ugwogoro soup (don't know if I got the spelling right). She was the best Grand mum and I really miss her. God rest her soul.
My mum too can cook for Africa.

Anonymous said...

No Ofeakwu is better than my Granny's own. With plenty dry fish, fresh fish and goat meat. My Grandma is BAE, she used to write me letters and send me money when i was in secondary school. Now when she calls me to buy her anything i don't look back even though i know she still has more money than me. It just feels good to give back.

James said...

LoL

Shantelle's Empire said...

I enjoy all. Especially white soup.

But my granny likes cooking 'bene seed' soup and me no like it oh....i always use the 'water' to eat my poundo yam and leave the rest.hahaha....so whenever I'm around,she cooks every other food but 'bene seed'.

My Iye used to prepare starch and banga soup for me. Oh how I miss my childhood trips to Benin. RIP Iyenogie.

Better Afang soup with periwinkle,stockfish,dryfish,big big meat,plenty crayfish,kpomo and yellow garri.Jesussssss!!!I used to dance in the kitchen while she cooked.I have taken over though,its my specialty.

Mystique said...

My grandmother's ofe egusi with achara and okazi is the bomb! The egusi is pounded and molded with usu.
And then mom's catfish pepper soup with nchanwu is awesome.
Now I'm hungry lol.

My maternal grand mum is a specialist in preparing Ofe onugbo with correct ogiri and akpu,Ofe akwu and ukwa!...
People visit her house for these meal..
She owned a restaurant way back in the village and very popular in those days...
I enjoy visiting her on holidays but you must wake up early to wash bitter leaf which she will compensate you with meat and fanta!...
She will give you like 1k then and tell you to hide it from your parents!...that it is your snacks money in school...
That woman really spoil me...
Choi!...1k then is like 50 k now which I used to flex during break time in my school..
Sadly she didn't live to eat the fruit of her labour...may her soul continue to Rest in peace!...

NORTH DAKOTA SIOBHAN said...

Iye!! This took me back to my secondary school days in benin..

SWAG LAFRESH said...

I didn't eat granny's food. When my paternal granny comes to visit she will just stretch her legs to enjoy my mama's food. When we visit her, my mum takes over the kitchen too. Maternal granny died before i was born.

I tasted my maternal grandpa's food. That man cooks the best banga soup.

Nemerem said...

I am really not a food person, but loves snacks a lot. My grandma improvised by making me local snacks like cassava cake (akara jiakpu), usu (made with egusi) and fried breadfruit. Whenever she hears that anyone was traveling to the north, she must package these delicacies for me. I am her favourite grandchild, her death/burial was a celebration of life, but I cried cos I would really miss her. RIP Mma Nko.

LOVEME JEJE IS UGU not UGWU... UGU is pumpkin leaf, but I wonder why google has UGWU instead of UGU.

My grand ma has favourite grand children, may be because we lived in same compound. When I finally left home and returned, nothing special for me, except the normal AKARA jakpu, usu, belebele-nnama or so, etc. She cooks OFE OWERRI wella and doesn't allow anyone cook for her.

I have 2 grandmother's one white and one Igbo . I love Igbo granny's ofe nsala and onugbu, even now I'm married she sends me onugbu by bus to my base hahaha! Also her porridge yam and fried yam was my favorite growing up. White grandma didn't cook much, but I miss her sandwiches and toast lol. Even though she's dead now I miss the Jollof rice she always asked her maid to cook for us . I pray God keeps my granny, but I'm very thankful to God that she has lived to see my child.

Hnmmm, my grandma food seems irresistible, the number one reason I go on a visit to her place is to eat her fufu with soup(usually called omi obe in yoruba ) accompanied with fresh fish and even meat sometimes, and she balance it with ewedu that has been well garnished with iru... Hnmmm, this food is so delicious that wherever I find myself, I always crave for my granny's fufu cos no other fufu and soup taste like granny's... Olohun je ki isu omo o Jina fun iya alakara ooo(that's what we call her ooooooo)
