By the way: I LIED ABOUT THE BREAKFAST PROBLEM. I wish i knew how to strike through my old post, haha. Well, the thing is, it's not really working for me. I might get a little more systematic with time and make it work but for now i'm grabbing coffee at work and sometimes a banana. It's not fit at all. I won't quit the quest for the breakfast solution thou. This post is sort of a photo galore of things i didn't make but are typical Cameroonian dishes. In most cases, i don't know the recipes.
Coki Corn: We had some sort of kitchen conversation about what Canadians would call this if they made it and my mom said it's typically 'a corn cake'. It is made the same way Moi Moi (Nigerian bean cake) is made; Usually wrapped in leaves but aluminium foil will do in this new age. I don't know the recipe. I'll find it and blog it.
Well, this was made at a family friend's house. Achu is a full blown traditional dish from my village. It is served with either the Black soup(above) or the yellow soup(below). I made the below picture a while ago, See Here. The Black soup is made out of crushed cocoyam leaves and is a way healthier option than the yellow soup which is made from red oil. Both soups have the same spices in them (i think ;)). Well, i don't know how to make the black one. I think this is a real example of how ugly healthy things usually look versus the unhealthy things.
PS: I here that the black soup came about as a result of poverty, when people couldn't afford red oil they came up with the leaves idea. Poverty breads healthy? lol
S/O to North West Cameroonians! Bisous!
