Hausa Recipe Month!!

Hausa Recipe Month!

Hello folks, I hope 2012 has been great to everyone thus far.  Let me start off by saying a BIG thank you to every single person that voted for us on the Nigerian Blog Awards, we won as a fan favorite and also as judge’s choice; It is a great honor and we are extremely thankful to every single one of our followers, contributors, critics and fans. Thank You!!!!

To wrap up 2012 in grand style, the 9jafoodie team has declared December as Hausa food month; we hope to bring you some of our favorite Hausa recipes.

Looking at food culture in Nigeria, the Northern people have contributed richly to our national food identity. They have contributed meals like; Tuwo(tuo), Kuli-Kuli, Masa, Suya, Yagi, Kunun, Fura de Nunu, Kilishi, tsere, waina to name a few. In its best days, Northern Nigeria was an agricultural hub, this factor plus colonization and religious preferences have had a great influence on northern cuisine.

We are looking for contributions from far and wide; we greatly encourage everyone to contribute in any form within their capacity. Please submit Recipes, pictures or suggestions to [email protected]

    Hey, I am a Scottish Girl married to a Hausa Man…who cannot cook and of course id never allow him in my kitchen so luckily I could already cook a vast range of Naija and Hausa Dishes…i can give u the recipie for Danwake although it wont really taste the same as the Garin Danwake..(the good expensive mix) from The north..
    It contains
    .2 spoons of Kuka (make sure its good and it draws well)
    .1-half spoons of Beans Flour
    .Half a Cup of Potash
    .1 spoon of Wheat flour
    And add water to the thick consistency and then try that I use it at home 🙂 Hope this helps. If u need anymore Recipies I am here to help as another Oyinbo Foodie

    Pls can anyone give me the recipe for making “Margi special”? It is a type of soup common in Maiduguri.

    This should be interesting. I’m looking forward to learning how to make a lot of things I grew up eating and miss so dearly.
    P.s Suya and tsere are exact same things so are waina and masa

      hi Shey!!! ho really? my understanding is that Tsere is made from minced meat instead of strips of meat…. and waina is a breakfast egg omelet while masa is made from milled rice.
