Abacha (African salad)

Abacha is a delicious African meal made from cassava. it’s so simple easy to make.

There are two ways of preparing it, (cooked and uncooked) and I’ll be sharing the uncooked method.

I couldn’t find garden egg, so I had to prepare mine without it but added cucumber slices at the side.

  1. Soak abacha in a cold water for 5 minutes to be soft
  2. While the abacha is soaking, cut the onions and garden egg. Pound the groundnuts in a morter or blend with a soup blender.
  3. Soak the akanwu in 10ml of water in a soup plater and filter out the water into a pot. And while it's soaking, filter out the abacha in a basket let the water drain out.
  4. Add a tablespoon of palm oil in the filtered akanwu water and stir, it will turn to semi-thick in yellow colour.
  5. Pour in your abacha in the mixture and stir until mixed.
  6. Add in your garden egg (chopped), onion, blended pepper, seasoning cube, groundnuts and salt to taste.
  7. Stir the mixture together until it's all mixed.
  8. Dish out and enjoy.
