Eba is made from dried grated grinded cassava flour commonly known as Garii. It can be white or yellow in colour. I love the yellow ones .
To make Eba, you need very hot water and garii.
Steps in making Eba
- Boil your water
- Get the needed quantity of Garii and set aside
- Pour your hot water in a bowl
- Sprinkle the garii into the hot water little by little until the garii and water are levelled up.
- Stir your garii using a spoon or spatula to smoothen it and remove lumps.
- Enjoy your Eba with stews like Vegetables stew/ Efo riro, Ewedu recipe and an amazing chicken
How To make Eba on stove/fire
I learnt how to make Eba on the stove/burner early in life and I use this method because I have full guarantee that it won’t come out with lumps/koko.
Eba on a stove/fire
- place your pot on a stove
- Add the required quantity of water
- Boil your water until lots of bubbles are present
- Sprinkle your garii and stir
- Reduce the heat from the stove by turning it down a bit.
- Next, continue stiring and stop adding garii the moment it solidifies a bit
- Stir a little more then turn off your stove/burner
- Enjoy your Eba with Ewedu recipe or Vegetables stew/ Efo riro.
