Made me some tasty akara goodness… Love it. Thanks to my friend Ighi for showing the right way to do it! #akara #westafricanfood #africanfood #fritters #beans #bambarabeans #somethingdifferent #homemadetomatosauce
Can’t wait to see Half Of A Yellow Sun. I love Chimamanda’s writing, have read all her books, have seen her at writers events here in London and have been an avid follower before the Beyoncé song… #africanart #halfofayellowsun #chimamandangoziadichie #inspiringwoman #hopemovielivesuptothebook #africanwriting
This filter shows how the okra has still got the green vibrant color.
So you boil a little water (enough to just cover the rest of the ingredients - eyeball it ) Once water has boiled add the onion, okra , chilli and a bit of tomato if you wish.
Add about 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda, this helps break the okra down and also keep its colour.
Add salt and keep stirring to keep it from spilling out.
Cook for another 5 minutes or so - remove from hear to check if the okra has broken down into slightly smaller pieces.
Serve with sadza/pounded yam etc and eat whilst still hot.
My black kango. The best pot to cook sadza. It’s an enamel cooking pot manufactured by Kango and every Zimbabwean family I know owns at least two. I just wondered if any other African country use these enamel cooking pots as commonly as we do. #kango #blackpot #pots #instapic #sadza #zimbabwean
