I tried charging some of my course mates to come here and filling in the procedures for making Eba; they all claimed that making it wasn’t a good challenge since Eba is very common and almost everyone in Nigeria understand the steps and principles for making it.
Recipes for making Eba:
Garri and Water
Sift the garri (this isn’t common to everyone)
Set the Turning stick and bowl
Boil the water with a kettle or electric jug
Pour the boiling water, into the bowl and dilute with a very little cold water
Pour enough of the garri into the hot water in the bowl
Sift off the water, garri shaft on the surface and stir immediately from side to side.
Everyone’s style of preparing it is different…
¤ some cover it to absorb the hot water
¤ others turn immediately
¤ some dilute the hot water, while some don’t
¤ some sift the shaft after pouring the garri, while others don’t
but at the end we all eat it and the Eba ends up it the stomach, goes through digestion process and so on…
But you won’t enjoy a badly made Eba;
¤ with too much lumps (Yoruba calls it koko while in Kalabari it’s “Ingboli”)
¤ made excessively soft
¤ Too hard
¤ Still having the raw taste of garri
¤ not well mixed.
My Verdict: Make your eba properly to enjoy it and don’t be in a haste because every food has an end product in the stomach, hence prepare it well.
