This week’s Ask AvartsyCooking inquiry is from Omobola from Lagos, Nigeria who would like to know what other snacks she can make for her husband to munch on during those times when he doesn’t feel like eating a full meal. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, send your question to email@example.com.
Hello Yetunde,I noticed my hubby is soo picky and always complaining that the fridge is so dry, nothing to put in the mouth. Please help advice how I need to be more creative and would appreciate if you can tell me how to bake cake (home made) and other snacks that I can make too.Thanks so much for always being there.Cheers.
My answer~ I have a separate page just for snacks that you can find all the snackable recipes on the site so far. I’m not much of a snacker myself, but I do remember snacks from my secondary school days in Festac, such as boiled peanuts (epa), the ones in the shells that you had to use your hands to break open.
I also remember Kuli Kuli, Liki Liki (in a black, velvet like shell which you’d remove and ‘lick’ the light brown/tan seed covering. I also remember Baba Dudu (this was a string of dark brown snack often in clear plastic/nylon bags).
You can purchase Kulikuli, Likiliki and Baba Dudu from street vendors. I’m not too sure how to make Kulikuli. You can also make or purchase Boli (roasted plantains) and have that with groundnuts for him.
I have a cake recipe, nothing major, but it’s cake! I hope that helps! Perhaps other readers can chime in as well!
Loves, do you have other suggestions? Please help Omobola out in the comments section.
