Black Eye Pea Fritters ( Akara in Nigeria or Acaraje in Brazil )
World Cup fever is everywhere……you cannot escape it, even a football ignorant person like me!!! Growing up, I watched a lot of cricket and tennis. While cricket now is no longer on my must watch list, tennis is still quite prominent. V and N however really enjoy football or soccer as its known here. So we have been watching a few matches and I have to say that I still don’t understand many of the rules….I however enjoyed myself thoroughly!!!
I have had my eye on this Nigerian dish for quite a while and have been waiting for the right time to make it……..you know, when you have the ingredients and the time as well as the inclination to make it!!!! (...........)
