Asun (spicy smoked goat meat)

Hello Kfam,

Today’s recipe is for Asun. Asun is very spicy smoked goat meat. It is traditionally prepared over open fire (grill) then sautéed in hot pepper and spices. This delicacy can be served as appetiser, main meal or snack.

Asun is prepared with goat meat with skin on but for those of us who live abroad and do not get goat with skin on you can also use the one without. Also the meat can be grilled in oven in the absence of open fire. Follow my recipe to making flavor packed asun. Let’s cook:

Asun

INGREDIENTS

1kg Goat meat

3 scotch bonnet (red, green and yellow)

1 Onion

2 stock cubes

Salt

DIRECTIONS

1) Wash the goat meat and put in a pot. Season with 1 stock cube  and salt and boil

IMG_5476

K’s Cuisine tip: Do not add water to boil the goat meat. Boil on very low heat so the water that comes from the meat doesn’t dry up too quick.

2) When the goat meat is cooked soft increase the heat and let the stock dry up with the meat

IMG_5494

Tip: This ensures all flavour from the goat meat is retained.

3) When the water dries up you should get a bit of fat from the goat meat settle in the pot. Keep this aside.

IMG_5497

4) Cut the goat meat in bite size, pour in oven tray and grill in the oven.

IMG_5519

5) Rough blend the peppers and onion. You can use food processor for this.

IMG_5486

You can use just red scotch bonnet. I prefer the 3 for colours and flavor 

6) In a wok, add the oil from the goat meat then add the rough blended peppers. Pour in the grilled goat meat and sautéed for a minute or two.

IMG_5522

IMG_5524

7) Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.

That’s Asun ready

This can be eaten as starter or main meal

Ogi Zobo Trifle

Hello Fam. Hope your week is going great.

Last week i gave you a new Nigerian breakfast, Akara in a hole (Recipe HERE), today i am giving you a New Nigerian dessert and I call it Ogi Trifle.

So what is Ogi trifle? Let me start with what  trifle is for the benefit of those who are not familiar with it.

Trifle is an English dessert that is made up of atleast 3 main ingredients which are cake, custard and fruits. It is almost usually served at christmas and there are different variations of this dessert. I have created Nigerian trifle using 2 Nigerian food Ogi (pap) and Zobo. Dang! was it banging or what? oh yeah it was.

This dessert is quick to make if you have the cake made beforehand. You can use home made cake or if that’s too much trouble buy from the stores.

Valentine is coming up and if you are dining in and have been thinking of what to make for dessert then give this yummy creation a try. Let’s do this:

Ogi Trifle

INGREDIENTS

Sponge Cake (Recipe HERE)

Fruits- raspberry, strawberries (I used frozen summer fruits)

Zobo syrup or Jam

Ogi (Pap)

Double cream or whipped cream

DIRECTIONS

1) Prepare the ogi and leave to chill. Don’t forget to sweeten with sugar.

IMG_2582

2) Cut Sponge cake in cubes

3) In a dessert glass, trifle bowl or any glass cup arrange the sponge cakes at the bottom of the glass

Akara in a hole

Hello Kfam, how are you all doing?

It’s so cold in London and I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning.You know the type of day when you just want to stay under the duvet and sleep all day? Yeah one of those days but then a girl’s gotta to do what a girl’s gotta do right? So here i am at the restaurant working hard and hustling my passion and making this post.

So on today’s recipe, As I was about to write this post I deliberated on what name to call this. Akara in a hole? Bird’s nest Akara? Akara hole? Akara toast? Toasted akara in bread? Then i thought oh shoot..It really doesn’t matter what i call it, i just want to give you the recipe so you can make it and enjoy it! I decided to call it Akara in a hole.

So what is Akara in a hole? Akara in a hole is a new Nigerian breakfast developed by yours truly. It’s very easy to make, you can make it as healthy as you like, it’s quick and delicious. It is toasted bread and healthy akara all in one piece, no mess, no fuss, looks appealing and above all practical!

So fam, here is another K’s Cuisine original recipe. Let’s Cook:

Akara in a hole

INGREDIENTS

Akara batter (Recipe HERE)

Sliced bread

Butter or Sunflower oil

Basil (Optional)

DIRECTIONS

1) Place sliced bread on a board or plate and using a cookie cutter make a hole in the centre.

You can use any shape of cutter. I decided to use heart shape

IMG_2280

2) Rub the pan with One or two teaspoons of oil and place the bread on it

IMG_2284

3) Scoop Akara batter in the hole and leave to cook for atleast 40 seconds before attempting to move the bread so as to avoid making a mess of it.

IMG_2285

4) Move it around and flip over to cook the other side

Akara in a basket

5) Akara in the hole is ready. There you have Toasted bread and Akara in one. How cool is that?

Akara in a hole

I cut into two so you can see how the bread is well toasted and Akara is well cooked? Super yum!

IMG_2287

You can put butter on the toast when warm and enjoy with a cup of tea, coffee and juice!

Akara in a hole

Say hello to a new Nigerian breakfast the K’s Cuisine way. Oh it doesn’t have to be for just breakfast, It can go for Lunch and dinner too.

Bird nest Akara

Bon appetit.

Extra Notes

For healthier option use brown bread

Let’s not forget the cut out part. Toast and enjoy. Nothing goes to waste.

You can apply extra butter on the toast after it’s done. Apply while toast is still warm.

You can achieve in waffle maker and toaster.

For extra flavours add basil and peppers in the akara batter just like I did in the picture below.
