POUR AND BLEND, TWO EASY STEPS TO MAKE DONKWA
Donkwa or Tanfiri as it is called in some areas is a savory Nigerian snack made with corn meal and groundnuts. An easy snack to make and it does not even require cooking. It is a snack that reminds me of my childhood, my grandma would fill two huge polythene bags packed with Donkwa for me and my siblings but now I can enjoy the Donkwa made with my own hands.
- Corn meal(made from roasted corn)
- Grinded groundnut or groundnut powder
- Ground chili powder
- Grinded clove
- Groundnut oil
- pour the corn meal, groundnuts, sugar, ground chili powder and ground clove into a blender and grind until all ingredients are well combined to form a smooth fine powder.
2. Transfer the fine powder into a large bowl. Then scoop out some of the powder into another bowl, gradually add drops of water and oil, mix well and mold into balls. Don’t add too much oil or water so that it doesn’t look soaked or sodden.
