RECIPE OF THE DAY: Nigerian Corned Beef and Herbed Akara

Akara is still a Saturday morning staple for most Nigerian families. You can enjoy it with bread, garri, or even pap or oatmeal. I can still perceive the aroma of the Akara from the Akara joint; which was close to my parent’s house. The sweet aroma of the bean batter against the hot oil, the melt in your mouth Akara ball folded into the cavity of a piece of Agege bread. Nawa!
