How To Prepare Miyan Kuka

Miyan kuka is a traditional Nigerian soup. It’s made with a combination of dried and ground baobab leaves as the main ingredient.

Although every Nigerian family has their own recipe, other common ingredients used in the preparation of miyan kuka include dried okra, onions, oil, ginger, dried fish, locust beans, hot chili peppers, and seasoning cubes.

The soup is simmered until all the ingredients become tender, and it’s then often served with tuwo shinkafa

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons kuka powder (dry baobab leaves powder)

1kg cow ribs (cut into pieces)

2 dry cat fish

2 cooking spoons red palm oil

2 tablespoons ground crayfish

1 flat round dawa dawa

Habanero pepper

1 onion

2 big seasoning cubes

Salt (to your taste)

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE MIYAN KUKA

Cook the cow ribs with the seasoning cubes and onion.

When the meat is done, turn off the heat, remove the chunks of onion then take out the meat from the beef stock.

Add the kuka powder, spreading over the meat stock as you add. Then stir very well with a slotted spoon to ensure that you get a smooth mix without lumps.

Add the pepper, crayfish and dawa dawa blend and palm oil. Stir very well.

Cover and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring it from time to time. Kuka is very much like ogbono hence sticks to the bottom of the pot if not stirred often.

After 5 minutes, add the cooked beef and some salt if necessary. Stir very well.

Cover and once it boils again, it is done
