They said that the key to a man heard is his stomach. That means that if you have to gain favour from any man, you will have to give him a well cooked meal. The question is, how many wives are ready to cook good meal for their husbands these days, yet they complain daily that they no longer care for them.
Those who does care a bit about feeding their husbands would resort to processed foods: noodles, pasters and other junk. However, forgetting that every man wants to eat home cooked food to be happy. In helping those who may not know, we will be discussing home cooked Nigerian foods. Your husbands wouldn't have to look at the direction side chicks after reading this.
1. Akam and Moi-moi
This combination is mostly eaten as breakfast. They are both made from corn and beans respectively. The nutrition value of each can be increased with adding milk, soya beans shake, egg and fish.
2. Rice and Fried Plantation
This Nigerian food is a perfect combination. The rice is eaten with stew made from either carrot, tomatoes, or palm fruits ( banga or ofe akwu). Of course, it is garnished with enough meat or fish to complete the recipe.
3. The Nigerian Moi-moi
The Nigerian moi-moi is prepared by soaking beans in water and allowed to get turgid. After about 12 hours of soaking, the water is seived and bark pulled off and milled. After milling, the paste is carefully mixed with other basic ingredients which includes, salt, pepper, onions, oil, etc. The value can also be increased by adding egg and fish like it is in the image below. So, if protein is what you want for your family, Nigerian moi-moi got you covered.
4. Egusi Soup and Fufu
This combination is one of my favourites. It is the mother of all foods in especially in Southern Nigeria. The soup is made by grinding dried melon, mixed and cooked in a pot with other ingredients, including meat. Then fufu is made from fermentation of cassava, seived, cooked and pounded.
5. Ogbono and Eba
Ogbono soup is made from the seeds of a tree known as bush mango or simply ogbono tree. Then eba is also known as garri which is made from cassava. The difference between this one and fufu is that garri is pilled, milled, roasted and finally, prepared with hot water when cooled.
