Benefits of making your own bread are so numerous that when you consider it, you would prefer to make it yourself especially when you have a fail proof recipe like the one am going to be showing you now.

Homemade bread is by far better than store bought, its chemical free (no preservatives), it’s rich, tasty and you are in control of what ingredients go into it! So you see that it makes a whole lot of sense to start making your own bread. So let’s get to it already

Ingredients

6cups flour
1/2cup sugar
1teaspoon salt
3large eggs
2cups warm milk
1/4cup of softened butter
3teaspoon dry active yeast

Directions

In a large bowl pour your warm milk (warm not hot) and add your softened butter to it, sprinkle your yeast into the milk (make sure it’s active yeast please) now add your sugar, salt and 2eggs give it a good mix with a whisk and gently add the flour one cup at a time, setting aside 1cup of flour for kneading the dough.

Soft bread rolls recipe1After you mixing in the flour and you have a soft, sticky dough, flour a smooth surface and turn the dough onto the floured surface and knead gently, it will be sticky so just keep adding little flour( make sure you don’t get tempted to use too much flour while kneading or your bread will be strong not soft) knead for 8-10minutes and then place the dough in a deep large bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and allow to rise for 1hour, that’s enough time for it to double or triple in size.

Soft bread rolls recipe1After one hour, uncover the dough and punch it release all the air, transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead again for 5minutes, after kneading, cut the dough into ten or more parts depending on how large or small you want your bread rolls, make each cut out into a ball by rolling it in circular motion till you get a ball shape formed.

Take a baking sheet that has been buttered or sprayed with cooking spray and line your rolls into it. Now turn on your oven to 275degrees, now take a kitchen towel and cover the dough to allow it rise for another 30minutes.

Soft bread rolls recipe1After 30minutes, uncover the dough, crack the remaining 1egg into a bowl and add 2tablespoon of water, mix and gently brush this egg wash all over the dough, place the baking sheet into your oven that had been hearing up and allow this to bake for 30minutes until the bread start to have a golden brown colour on top.

Nigerian Chicken Curry Sauce

Published

on

Nigerian Chicken Curry Sauce1

Just as the name implies, it’s a Nigerian version of the western chicken curry soup, which has gravy like consistency and look.

What makes this different is that we use vegetables that are common to us, corn flour or flour for thickens and trust me it’s so delicious and a great alternative for our tomatoes based stews and sauces.

I put my own twist on it, this recipe is very easy to make and a great way to eat your vegetables, so let’s get cooking. For this recipe you will need the following

Ingredients

Chicken 8pieces
Curry powder
1 tablespoon corn flour or plain flour
Runner beans
Carrots
Irish potatoes
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
Green pepper
Red pepper
Ginger
Garlic
Salt and seasoning cubes

Nigerian Chicken Curry Sauce1 Nigerian Chicken Curry Sauce1 Nigerian Chicken Curry Sauce1Directions

Wash and boil your chicken like I have done in the picture below with salt, seasoning, curry powder, thyme, ginger and garlic, I prefer to use chicken stock in making my curry than just plain water, it makes it more flavorful .

 Slice your carrots into circles not to thick or too thin.

Wash and peel your potatoes, cut it up in sizeable chunks, slice your red and green peppers plus runner beans and then mince your garlic and ginger.

After the chicken has boiled for about 10minutes, take it out and sieve the stock then set aside.

In a clean pot add your vegetable oil on low heat and gently sauté your onions, garlic, ginger and curry, till it’s softened.

Add the carrots and potatoes to the onion mix and stir to combine, the flavors right now will just make you hungry! Allow these to cook together for just 2minutes while constantly stirring.

Nigerian Chicken Curry Sauce1Now is the time to add your chicken stock and cover to boil till the carrots and potatoes are soft but still crunchy, add in the peppers, runner beans and chicken taste for salt and seasoning and adjust accordingly, allow these to cook together for 5minutes.

Take your corn flour or plain flour and mix with 3tablespoons of water, gently stir this into the pot to help thicken the sauce, be careful not to pour in all the flour mix at once or your sauce might get too thick( if it gets too thick just add a little water and you will be fine).

Cook this for another 3minutes and your Nigerian Chicken Curry sauce is readily yes drum rolls right now.

 Serve this yummy dish with rice or pasta, I served mine with rice and enjoy.

Banga Rice recipe - Nigerian palm nut rice

Banga rice is completely different from the native jollof rice and even tastier. Rice is one of the most staple foods you will find in Nigerian homes, and we sure have so many ways to prepare it deliciously.

The secret to the perfect Banga rice is to use fresh Banga juice (visit my YouTube channel for a video on how to extract Banga juice from fresh palm nuts, and remember to subscribe) and fresh Banga spices, lots of onion, crayfish and smoked fish, but please feel free to use the store bought ones if that’s what you can find.

 For this recipe you will need the following and you can also adjust these ingredients to your liking.

Ingredients

3cups rice

Dice up on onion ball and add to the rice that’s already cooking. Wash your stock fish and add it to the rice as well.

Blend your peppers with onions, uncover your rice and add the smoked fish (wash and debone it), the pepper blend, crayfish and the seasoning cubes, taste to make sure you have added enough, you don’t want to overpower the original taste of the Banga, allow this to cook till the rice is soft which should be about 20minutes then you can add the Banga spices, stir very well to combine cover and allow to cook for another 10 minutes.

Once the rice is almost dry add your scent leaves that you have chopped and washed to the rice, stir it well into you rice, which by this time its aroma is disturbing the neighborhood.
