In January of this year, we had a little initiative on our Instagram page where we talked about Nigerian foods that can easily be prepared in a microwave. The conversations were definitely very exciting. I love the swallow option so much especially when you just want to make food for one or two people. The amala recipe works for pounded yam, semolina, wheat, garri etc.
Our #microwaveseries continues with microwaved #amala. Note: make sure you combine mix well in step 1 to avoid lumps. You can decide to cook further after step 4, add more water, combine, cook for another minute. Other solids will be featured in the series. #9jafoodie #9jafoodieMicrowaveSeries #naijafoodie
Direction : combine 1 part elubo (amala powder) with 2- 3 parts water (depending on how soft you like it). Stir well to combine. Microwave for 90 seconds. Remove and stir. Microwave for another 60 seconds.
Hands up 🙋 if you throw things in the microwave and wait to see what happens ? Behold Quick eggs: <1 minute breakfast with a single dish to clean up. What else have you tried cooking in the microwave? Ps: a little oil in the bowl will keep the egg from sticking. Cook for 1-1:10mins for a firm yolk. #9jafoodie #egg #quickcooking #breakfast #microwaveseries #9jafoodieMicrowaveSeries
Presenting Microwaved Moimoi. This was suggested by a member of the 9jafoodie Nation. Verdict- it worked out great! . Note: think width not height for this. You want to cook in something wide so the batter is in the bottom half, this will ensure a more even cook throughout. If you put too much in one bowl, this will not cook evenly (I learnt the hard way). Took less than 15 minutes from start to finish!!! #9jafoodieMicrowaveSeries #9jafoodie #naijafoodie #moimoi
What else do you use your microwave oven for?
