Should I even apologize for not blogging like i normally do or can we all just act like nothing happened and I am updating normally. Yes lets do the latter!
As most of you know, I write for the Sunday Punch every week and sometimes it gets overwhelming trying to figure out what to cook for my column because I have to ensure its something people in Nigeria can have access to. EASILY. Thanks to my constant reading/researching and learning, I always coming across different meals that I know would work well for my column. I write them down on a list and weekly I look through the list to pick what I am going to make. Sometimes I have to try a recipe more than once in case I need to re-measure my ingredients but for this one, I ball-parked everything and it came out perfect!
I heard of Banga rice, a few year’s ago when I was in Port Harcourt for holiday and I made a mental note about it. Fast forward to last year and I saw a post on instagram from a restaurant and they had banga rice on the menu. I remembered the taste and was definitely interested. Banga rice is pretty much rice cooked in palm nut sauce from THIS recipe. You cook jasmine rice in the sauce add dried fish, some banga spices and some stock! t ends up perfect! absolutely perfect! This recipe has been on my must-try list since forever! I wanted to buy the paella pan before I made it so that coupled with some other things made me FINALLY try this recipe for the first time last week. The taste was everything I thought it would be and more. I liked the added taste the shrimp and dried herring added to the dish as well. I really hope you do try this recipe and if you have any questions, you know where to find me! till next time,
