Nigerian Bukka Stew |Recipe

A “bukka” stew is known to have a distinct fire-wood taste that only comes from cooking traditionally. The bukka stew is mostly served in Nigerian food canteens and is cooked differently than the traditional stew cooked in Nigerian homes. It’s fried with palm oil.

Meal With A Story: Grilled Sandwiches

The first time I had a grilled sandwich was when I was at Osogbo, Osun state, Nigeria. I was visiting my grandma, and we’d called it Toasted Bread then. Recently, practically ten years later, I stumbled upon this “toasting” machine and I knew that I had to have it and reignite my beloved childhood memory of making this with my Grandma! Thankfully, recently, the grilled sandwhich maker (toasting machine), was recently gifted to me and I could not be more excited!

Below is a very simple recipe that you can adjust whichever way you like/choose. Be it to a healthier or a more elaborate recipe.

Nigerian Fried Stew| Recipe 1 (Stockfish) -Quick 7 Minute Cook
