Ekpang Nkwukwo


Humming … “I can only imagine”

Yes o! I can only imagine the multitude of people salivating at my topic. Well, that is relative and dependent on my crowd being mostly Nigerians and a few people outside Naija and Africa who know what I’m talking about.

My friends (FK and Lucille) and I had a discussion about a dish I could cook and I chose Ekpang Nkwukwo amongst so many more. To ensure it wasn’t just about something I picked up from the net and forwarded, I made up my mind to cook the main thing and send via web to them. I’m so looking forward to the time when you can cyber-taste food, so Lucille won’t have to travel all the way and neither would I.

Dear Dream Readers, here’s what I came up with and for your information, the Periwinkle is for FK alone as she plans to cook Ekpang Nkwukwo also, but can’t seem to find Periwinkle to add – so I’m sending her these. Hope it will suffice FK. *wink*.

I guess most of you would want to know the process and the ingredients to use, so I’ll suggest this link http://www.mybelledonfull.com/2012/05/18/ekpang-nkwukwo/ to you. Don’t tell FK I said this, but that’s where she’s learning to cook hers. LOL

As for the final thing, I can only give you a plate, as I have so many mouths waiting to enjoy it with me. Besides, I made mine a bit dry, so by the time you add enough liquid to get the porridge, it should go round everyone that wants to taste. I trust I made your evening pleasurable.

Behold...Ekpang Nkwukwo

Pray tell, how did it taste, what would you like for me to cook for you next time?

  1. Looks delicious, thanks for sharing.

    Whao, mybelledonfull.com has got a serious competition! Seriously, I, too look forward to when we could web-taste dishes and felt it right on the tongue…asking for too much?

    Thank you sister! I see that periwinkles were pretty much used for the base so to prevent the wrappings from sticking to the pot also as garnish to the dish – periwinkles it is!

    • so you see I was thinking about you when and the future of your pot when I offered you the periwinkles. LOL
      You won’t believe that I got many calls on that post asking if I still had the food left-over. Now, I’ve made so many promises to give out when next I cook.

  2. You are so right that not many outside of your country would have had this dish. This 73-year-old African American was only familiar with several of the ingredients in this recipe. But, I trust you and if you say it’s tasty I would give it a try. Hugs.

    • One of the other reasons you always get my hugs rfom across here. LOL. It really is tasty. If you were my friend on Facebook, you’d see all my people in the U.S asking for theirs. I’m sure you would have loved it but I’d do yours with less pepper. 🙂
      And another hug.
