Nigeria is home to some of the most exotic cuisines in Africa and the world at large. Ranging from Traditional foods to even quick snacks, otherwise known as 'street food', Nigerians are truly a force to reckon with when it comes to food preparation and presentation.
So, which Nigerian Meal do you love the most and how do you prepare it or how do you get it rather?
As for me, I am a huge fan of our Jollof Rice and Pounded Yam and i like it well prepared by people around me or one of the best restaurant out there. On the other hand, i go to market, get the ingredient and give to anyhow who i am sure knows how to prepare it for me or otherwise prepare by myself.

I really dont have a beat food but as an Edo boy I have no option than to fall in love with pounded yam and egusi food the only problem is that as a Lagos boy who never learnt how to pound yam with mortal and pestle it's always ends as a wish whenever I feel like eating it
To me nothing can beat confirm pottage. Its actually a very simple meal to prepare. You will need Yam,ponmo,assorted meat,onions,vegetable if necessary and either palm oil or vegetable oil.
First you boil your water and while the water is boiling,you slice your yam into small cubes and also slice the meat and chop the vegetable. When the water is boiled pour the yam into it and let it sit for a while,then you add palm oil and salt to taste and also leave for some minutes to cook then you add the sliced meat and vegetable and mix properly and leave it to cook until it gets thick.
My best food is bread and beans .yeah its sound hilarious.Lauging out loud.
If you a guy and you don't like bread and beans at all.not even close to liking beans.you have missed road.better start eating cause beans increases growth of the buman body by giving us necessary nutrients to do work at all time

Hmmm.... My best food is actually a unique one though I guess only few will love you have but trust me it's the best food I know so far. Actually, my best food is Boiled Plantain and Vegetable Soup. The preparation of this isn't a long time process, but it's needs a lot of hard work in as to show the delicacy in it. Here's how you prepare a Boiled Plantain and Vegetable soup ;
Firstly, you peel off the plantains, then you slice it in a chubby size (not too small and not too big), then you put the sliced chubby Plantain in a pot then put about 4-5cups of water in as to make the Plantain soft and boils well, then you add a little salt of (1 teaspoon full) to give it nice taste. After that, you leave the pot of Plantain for about 15-20 mins to boil very well, then you check out the Plantain if it's soft to your desire. After that you drop the pot of Plantain and your Plantain is ready. Then,
Secondly, your vegetable soup to go with the Boiled Plantain. Get your vegetable chopped very well and nice, then you get your pepper (tomatoes, rodo and bawa) since it's going to be Efo riro. You grind your pepper not too smooth because it has be a stew. Then you get your meat, fish, crayfish, pomo etc to garnish the Efo riro(Vegetable soup). Since, all the necessary ingredients have been gotten then you start your preparation.
After grinding the pepper (remember not too smooth) you pour palm oil into a pot and heat it up to about 30 degrees, after heating the palm oil up, you pour your grinded pepper into the hot palm oil to make the stew fried then you cover the pot and let the pepper heat and boil up for about 10-15 mins after doing that you add your spices i.e Maggi ( 3 cubes), salt (half teaspoon). Then you close the pot again for about another 10-15 mins so the spice will circulate round the stew and gives it a good taste after that you pour in your meat, fish, crayfish and pomo (NOTE: you've to wash them thoroughly) into the stew then close it again for they also heat up with the stew and make soft enough to eat after that, you pour in your parboiled vegetable into the stew and stir it very well then cover the pot again for 15-20 mins after that Efo riro is ready to be eaten. Then your serve both the Boiled Plantain and Efo riro (Vegetable soup) in one plate and don't forget to get a chilled refreshments too so as to cool your mind while eating. You can thank me later after you try this.
My favorite food is beans and plantain. You start by picking stones and any other rubbish from the beans then put the beans in a pot and put water in it then turn in the fire. The water level should be well above the beans. After some time the beans should start getting soft then you put the beans in a filter. After that, out the beans in the pot and the water level should be slightly above the beans. Then you put in 2 teaspoons of salt (depending on the numbers of chips if beans you cooked) after that you put in like 2 teaspoons of pepper then you in crayfish and sliced Onion and by the time you are done with that the water would have started boiling so you now o put in Palm oil, stir and wait for the mixture to almost dry completely then you switch off your cooker and leave the pot of beans open till the little water solidifies. Then you fry plantain and you eat then together.
