Breakfast And Lunch Post....

Today's breakfast inspiration is Akara (bean fritters) and pap

    


Here are a few tips on how to achieve perfectly smooth akara balls like the ones in the photo:


Tip 1: Blend your beans with as little water as possible. If your blender can't work with very little water, then it's best to grind your beans in the market with those heavy duty grinders. Too much water will make your akara flat and ugly.

Tip 2 (very essential for puffy akara): After grinding your beans and other ingredients, pour some of the puree into a mortar (this should be the amount you can fry in one go). Using a pestle, work some air into the mixture by turning clockwise or anticlockwise for at least 5 minutes. Your batter is ready for frying when it becomes noticeably lighter in colour and doubled in volume.
You can use an electric mixer for this step but nothing beats the good ol' mortar and pestle.

Final tip: Add your salt just before frying. Salt can disrupt the leavening process, so it should be added after the batter has risen sufficiently.

Follow these steps and you'll be wowed by how smooth and puffy your akara balls will turn out.
Happy frying!!!


And for lunch, how about some Banga soup made with fresh fish and chicken?






It can be paired with pounded yam too, not every time starch.

Wishing everyone a foodilicious weekend!

Bread and tea...

QQ said...

Sorry, tell her in a polite way that she should explore other soup. Watch YouTube videos of soup with her. If you know how to cook, tell her on a Saturday you want to pamper her, then cook what u like and enjoy it together. U can tease her that she should cook your type of sauce too. U go dey alright.

Viva Ciara said...

I'm telling you, the banga is dope.
My mum thinks I'm trying to check weight when I eat the quantity I can and tell her I'm satisfied (I'm not even fat so I don't know why she thinks so).
She keeps singing that breastfeeding mothers eat by 6am,10am...,and before 9pm I should have eaten like 8timesπŸ™†πŸ™†
Me that I wake by 9am, she'll be screaming that I'm supposed to have eaten Like twice already.
She's just oohh so wonderful, I'm asking God to keep her alive for me.

Banga soup is too oily.

Plantain chips!!

Chichy's Kitchen said...

You can scoop out the oil after boiling your Banga juice. That's the only way to make it less oily

Chichy's Kitchen said...

You're welcome

Chichy's Kitchen said...

I assumed most of us already know the ingredients... Beans, onions, pepper and salt are the basic ingredients. You can add anything else you like
