EGG SAUCE AND WHITE YAM.

You asked for my food timetable?

Ngwa o’setigo. Go make egg sauce na white yam. Relax let me walk you through it.

#ingredients : UTC Tomatoes, fresh Pepper, onion. Garlic and ginger (di optional), salt, bonga fish, my blended mixture of 9 natural herbs/seeds.

You can use any tomatoes but UTC is the best. It doesn’t have this sour taste and contains little water. Very red too in colour.

#recipe : cut your tomatoes, pepper onion or blend it roughly using a blender. Make sure your little garlic and ginger is smoothly blended or pounded maka you won’t like the feeling if you come chop any of them after cooking.

In a clean pot, add small oil. Allow to heat up small and pour in your tomato mix.

Stir fry this mixture on a low heat until the water from the tomatoes dries up small. Remember you are not making stew so you need little water from the tomatoes to remain to form part of the sauce. The tomatoes ekwesiro idi very dry like when you’re cooking stew. The sauce is suppose to be fresh, not too dried.

Already you have added little salt while stir frying. Ngwa now break your egg(s), add little salt, whisk together and pour into the tomatoes mix.

At this point, reduce-kwa the heat again and continue stir frying until the egg looks fried.

To make it plural maka ndi nwelu kids….add little water and cook for 2 minutes ka everything mix-ie together. So that if your children chop the egg finish and their yam is still remaining, they can use the little water from the sauce to finish the yam by fire by force ????.

Yes, you can add blended crayfish or your normal seasoning cube. Me, I added little bonga fish as my seasoning because mu na bullion cubes adiro emezi ofu ihe again since last year. ????????????.

Film agwugo.

Oya make it and share your review. Try not to add bullion cubes….you will enjoy it. Make a decision today to monitor what goes into your system. Odi very important.

Yours faithfully,
Celebrity chef,

5 silent killer-foods Nigerians love

Published

Nigerian cuisine is renowned for its rich flavors, vibrant colors, and diverse ingredients.

However, amid the array of delicious dishes, there are some foods that, despite their popularity, pose significant health risks.

Here are five silent killer foods that many Nigerians love:

1. Suya (Carcinogenic)

Suya

Suya, a spicy skewered meat popular across Nigeria, is a favorite street food enjoyed by many. However, this tasty delight comes with a hidden danger. The process of grilling meat at high temperatures can lead to the formation of carcinogenic compounds known as heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). These compounds have been linked to an increased risk of cancer. Regular consumption of suya, particularly when it is charred, can elevate this risk, making it a silent killer on the dinner table.

2. Shawarma (Due to Hot Dogs)

Shawarma

Shawarma, a Middle Eastern-inspired wrap filled with spiced meat, vegetables, and sauces, has become immensely popular in Nigeria. Often, hot dogs or other processed meats are used in the filling, which contain preservatives like nitrates and nitrites. These preservatives can convert into nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic. Furthermore, processed meats have been linked to various health issues, including heart disease and diabetes. Despite its delicious taste, frequent consumption of shawarma can contribute to these health problems.

3. Nkwobi (Excess Potassium)

Nkwobi

Nkwobi, a delicacy made from cow feet cooked in a spicy palm oil sauce, is a beloved traditional dish. However, it is also a silent killer due to its high potassium content. For individuals with kidney problems or those at risk of hyperkalemia (high potassium levels), consuming Nkwobi can be dangerous. Excess potassium can lead to irregular heartbeats and even heart failure. While it is a flavorful dish, those with existing health conditions need to be cautious about its consumption.

4. Kilishi

Kilishi

Kilishi, a dried, spicy meat similar to jerky, is another Nigerian favorite. The drying and seasoning process often involves adding a significant amount of salt, which can contribute to high blood pressure (hypertension). Although kilishi is a convenient and tasty snack, its high salt content makes it a silent threat to cardiovascular health.

5. Deep-Fried Snacks

Deep Fried Snacks (Akara)

Deep-fried snacks such as puff-puff, buns, akara (bean cakes), and plantain chips are immensely popular in Nigeria. These snacks, while delicious, are often cooked in unhealthy oils that contain trans fats. Trans fats are known to increase bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and decrease good cholesterol (HDL) levels, leading to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Additionally, the high-calorie content of deep-fried foods can contribute to obesity, which is a risk factor for numerous chronic diseases.

“May Nigeria never happen to us. I don’t wish my worst en£my to experience this” Husband accuses hospital of causing his pregnant wife and newborn son’s d£@th due to medical negligence.

A husband who lost his wife and their newborn son has called out the hospital, while stating that their d£@ths could have been avoided if hospital staff did their jobs right.

Prince Ovwiomodiowho, a registered nurse anesthetist, narrated how his wife Mrs Loveth Ovwiomodiowho, 35, was in labour for two days at R-Jolad hospital located in Omotoye Estate, Orile-Agege, Lagos State.

He said his wife was assigned to Dr. Marcus Mbakwe, the consultant obstetrician, who his wife continued to see throughout her pregnancy.

His wife, who already gave birth to a daughter in 2020, was as healthy as could be and she had no known associated history. He said she also was diligent in attending her antenatal appointments.

She went into labour in the early hours of March 7, 2024, and was taken to the hospital where things went downhill.

According to chats he shared with LIB, Dr. Marcus was not in the hospital when his wife was brought in and they were communicating with the doctor via social media.

His wife was left in the care of a midwife and junior doctor.

He added that Dr. Marcus did not examine his wife before giving instructions to the junior doctor to start induction, which led to compl!cations.

When his wife was struggling to have a vaginal birth, they delayed to take her to the theatre for CS and when they did, her situation had declined crit!cally.

The baby already suffered prolonged birth asphyxia from delayed interventions and d!£d.

“I shouted and screamed, asking for Dr Marcus the consultant. I could not get answer from anyone.”

His wife lost so much bl00d. Videos and photos shared with LIB show litres of the patient’s bl00d on the floor of the theatre as doctors tried to save her.

Sadly, she passed on too on March 8, 2024.

The bereaved husband is now calling on the state government to take action against the hospital.

He has also petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetoku, over his late wife’s missing uterus and his baby’s placenta.
