    I’m so sad I discovered this blog late…within the short time I visited, I’ve learnt so much foodie! I’m happy now to have a worthy kitchen team. *winks*

    Where would you get shaki and pomo abroad,what is it called?

      @Ada, Shaki is called “tripe”. It is really the stomach, so some stores have it marked as “cow stomach”. Pomo or Kpomo is the skin and it’s called “cow skin” but I have only seen that at Nigerian/West African shops. In the DC-Maryland-Virginia area, Afrik International Food Market is popular. Their location is in Farmer’s Market in DC and in Hyattsville/Landover, MD

    Can I boil my blended pepper before using it for efo riro? I tried ur style of boiling tomatoes, pepper,onions et all before blending and I rili liked it. The aroma alone makes one hungry. Can I do same for efo as earlier asked.
