One really good food that I loved as a kid and is now a favourite of mine is Kwahka. (Pronounced “Kworka”). A delicious corn pudding made from very ripe plantains, palm fruit extract and cornmeal. Originally cooked by wrapping the corn batter in plantain leaf pockets and steamed in a pot.
As a kid growing up in southern Nigeria, I believed one of the perks of being a Niger Deltan was the good food. Not only good food, but most of all the fresh fruits and vegetables. Naturally fertile plantations where rich cooking oils are extracted from. such as palm oil, fresh fish and all kinds of sea foods from the Niger River and livestock that vary.
Kwahka has been a age-long street food of the Niger Delta (Southern Nigeria). I’m delighted to share this age-long recipe with you.
Here’s the recipe :
