Nigeria is on the verge of entering the rainy season. It will be wonderful to serve this dish in your house during this time period because it makes one feel so warm after eating it. As a result, I've been indulging in pap recently. After making the pap, I like to sprinkle a little sugar on top and pour my milk over it. It tastes heavenly. This meal contains very little sugar, but it can still be served without it. You can eat it with akara ( Beans Cake), moi moi, or bread. It is all up to you.

We must have all known that pap is manufactured from maize (or corn). To make pap from maize, soak the maize in hot water for several hours after removing it from the cob. This allows the maize to ferment and soften. Then you pull it out and prepare it for grinding. The dirt component of the maize is next sieved off with a white and clean cloth.Depending on your preferences, yellow or white maize could be used. Because pap is not subjected to any chemical or industrial processes, it is considered a perfectly natural meal. It never loses its nutrition.
Pap is one of the few foods that requires little time to prepare. Making pap is as simple as adding a little water to your raw pap, turning it into a smooth paste that is neither too thick nor too runny, and then pouring hot water until it hardens.
