This yummy and exceptionally fresh tidbit is from the Western part of Nigeria. It is a famous delicacy made with cornflour, garri and a few ingredients. It is one of the simple Naija snacks that takes you through a ride of fond memories. In those days, we always anticipate eating this delicious corn stick during the school's break time. On most occasions, you join the queue waiting to buy Kokoro from the street hawker. The good news is you can prepare this snack at the solace of your home with your friends and family. It is a mouth-watery snack everyone anticipates each time someone decides to prepare it at home. Let make it happen right away.
Tiger Chilli pepper
Tiger Ginger Powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup water
Oil for deep frying
Gather your ingredients
In a small bowl, add all the ingredients, mix thoroughly and set aside.
Pour half cup of water into a pot, leave to boil and then add the mixed cornmeal. Afterwards, stir until you get a stretchy mix that looks just like Eba.
Place the mixed cornmeal in a big bowl, cover and leave to cool completely.
When it is cooled, add the remaining cornmeal and knead until smooth.
Take a small quantity and roll it in between your palm. You can also roll it on a flat table to get a long shape. Thin sticks make crispier kokoro. Repeat this process for the remaining dough.
Heat your cooking oil in a pan, add the rolled sticks one at a time. Then fry until light or golden brown.
Afterwards, remove the hot Kokoro and place it on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
Serve and enjoy with a chilled can of Tiger Ginger Health Drink.
