But no matter how much we love garri, sometimes we might get tired of enjoying it as a swallow or a snack. In Nigeria swallow is the most common food, that can be made from garri. Although there are other delicacies and snacks that you can make from garri, but most people have not discovered it.
Today i have 2 delicious snacks that can be made with garri, and I thought of sharing them with you. These snacks are snacks that are used to everyone, the first one is sold by people who sell roadside snacks, but what people don’t know is that Garri is what is used in preparing it.
So let’s get started on the preparation process.
Ingredients You Need
Dry Grinded Pepper
Any Vegetable Oil Of Your Choice
Salt To Taste
Now let’s get started on the preparation process
Fill a pot or kettle with water and boil it.
Measure two cups of garri and put it into a bowl, add half cup of sugar(you can reduce or increase it to your taste), add one cup of your dry milk, and add salt and dry grinded pepper to taste.
Stir to combine all the ingredients, get the hot water, and use the mixed garri to prepare your normal eba.
Now break about two to three eggs into another bowl and whisk.
Now mix the eggs with the eba, you can use your hand or wooden turner for this.
Leave the eba and egg mixture to cool for twenty minutes.
Now start rolling the eba into any shapes that you want. You can roll it into the shapes in the picture below.
Place a pan on fire, pour in some vegetable oil and allow the oil to heat up.
Now fry your mould eba in the oil, but be careful when adding them because they are soft and they might break.
Fry your rolled eba till the colour turns into a golden brown colour, and your garri snacks is ready to enjoy.
If you have leftover eba at home and you want to prepare this snack, then don’t worry because I will show you how to prepare this snack, from left over eba.
Boil some hot water and pour it into the left over eba.
Add milk, sugar, Pepper and salt to taste.
Now break your eggs into a bowl, whisk the eggs and add it to the eba then mix the eba and the ingredients, it is advisable to use your hands for this because, spoon or spatula will not be able to combine the eba with the ingredients. If the eba is very strong, put it in a pot and put on the fire, and stir it in the fire. This method will heat up the eba and soften it.
After mixing the eba with the ingredients, keep it for twenty minutes to cool, and mould into any shapes you want then fry it in a hot oil.
