    The Best Nigerian Food

    Nigerian food is delicious and hearty. Nigerian food is a great choice for anyone who loves African food. Need some help choosing Nigerian cuisine? Here are 20 Nigerian dishes you should try.

    Ryan (Pounded Yam).

    Nigeria is the largest producer of yams in the world. It’s not surprising that Iyan is a popular Nigerian food. Many parts of Nigeria are fondly aware that “yams are food and food is yam”.

    The most popular way to prepare yams is to pound them into a paste. How the yams are pounded will vary depending on which ethnic group is making the dish. After the yams have been pounded to form a smooth paste, they can be formed into balls. This pounded yam ball, Iyan, is part of a wonderful group of foods known as “swallows”.

    The pounded yam is often served with a soup such as a vegetable stew. This great recipe will help you make it at home.

    Ewa Riro (Beans Porridge)

    Due to Nigeria’s abundance of beans, tons of Nigerian food include beans. Ewa Riro is a favorite dish due to its addictive flavors and affordability.

    The Yoruba-speaking region of Nigeria popularized this delicious dish. After the beans have become soft, they are boiled and stewed in spices and olive oil.

    The individual who makes the stew may add special ingredients. Some people like to add crayfish, while others prefer to add smoked fish. You can add whatever you like to the dish if you make it at home. This recipe will help you make your own.

    You might like to add a side dish to your Ewa Riro. It is often accompanied by fresh bread or fried plantains.

    Jollof rice

    This classic Nigerian dish is a must-try when you travel to Nigeria. We must warn you! There is a friendly rivalry between Nigeria and Ghana over who makes Jollof rice best, so we warn you!

    The Nigerian Jollof rice dish combines rice, tomatoes, peppers, and other ingredients. You can then add delicious combinations of add-ins like peas, onions, and prawns. Jollof rice is often served with meats and chicken. You might also find it with stews or plantains. For some heat, try it with a Nigerian chili sauce.

    This dish is one of The World Wonders.

    Beef Suya (Thin Strips Of Seasoned and Grilled Beef).

    This street food will be a common sight when visiting casual restaurants in Nigeria. Thin slices are of beef marinated in various spices – an amazing combination that will ignite your taste buds. Roaster peanut powder, cayenne and ginger are some of the most common spices.

    This method of preserving beef was very popular among Fulani and Hausa people. These were nomad groups that had their ways of conserving meats.

    This dish is not usually served in homes but can be found at many suya places along the country’s roads. It is often served with pepper sauce and tomatoes.

    Dodo (Fried Plantain)

    Plantains can solve any problem in Nigerian cuisine. They can be fried, grilled or dried.

    Did you know that plantains are cut differently? This determines how and where they will be served. This delicious food is served as part of the main course when you see long, thick slices.

    Dodo is a cube of plantains, which are deep-fried and can be found all over the country. It can be served as an appetizer or as a snack. To make this dish, you will need plantain and vegetable oil. It’s as easy as that.

    Egusi Soup (Ground Melon Vegetable Soup).

    This soup will warm your soul and fill you up.

    This one-pot meal is easy to prepare, and everyone loves it. Egusi soup is often eaten with popular swallows like Fufu and Eba. It can even be served over rice.

    You may see Nigerians making this soup with toasted Pumpkin seeds instead of ground melons. After a long day of exploring, the seeds add warmth and comfort. This soup is often served with pounded yellow. This is a delicious dish to make at home.

    Nigerian Egg Rolls (It’s Not What You Think)

    We think of egg rolls when we think about delicious Asian food. While we don’t intend to make any comparisons between them, you should try Nigerian egg rolls on your next trip.

    This dish is more literal in Nigeria. This is a boiled egg of chicken that has been battered and fried.

    Simple and effective, it’s delicious. You’ll love digging into the crispy batter and the soft yolk. This is a tasty finger food you will want to eat again and again.

    Puff Puff (Sweet Deep Fried Dough).

    Puff Puff is another Nigerian fried delight.

    Although it isn’t fancy, it will make your mouth water. It can be compared to a New Orleans donut or beignet. (Yes, I do know that beignets come from France!)

    This dish is easy to make: roll the dough and fry it. Sprinkle the sweetened dough with powdered sugar. Yummy!

    Agege Bread

    This bread can be paired with many Nigerian dishes. It’s intended to complement delicious main dishes and be versatile.

    Agege bread, white bread, is denser than the bread Americans use for sandwiches. Named after Agege, the town that used to be the sole source of this bread was a wholesale bakery.

    Lagos has taken over this small town, but this bread can still be found anywhere in the country. It’s versatile enough to be eaten with stew or breakfast with eggs and fried plantain.
