How to Make Awara (Tofu) || Hausa Food || UmmiBee







Hey Guys!



Have you heard of Awara?



Awara is the Hausa version of Tofu, A meal made of Soybean curds. Its a great source of protein for all the fitfams out there.



It is a much loved delicacy in northern Nigeria. People usually buy it in the mornings to late afternoons so its great for the munchies and would leave you full for very long.



People usually dismiss making Awara at home because they find it tedious, tiresome and very difficult.



In this recipe, I demystify and simplify the almighty awara! Its actually not that difficult at all! and if you follow the pictorial above, you'll find out for yourself too.



Sure it may have a lot of steps, but at the end of the day, the yummy treat you get is so worth it!



Have you ever tried Awara?



Are you a fan of Awara?

Let us know in the comments below!



Lots of Curdy Love,



Ummi

    1. Hey Jemima :)

      I think the Wara you're talking about is made out of milk and usually sold by Fulani milk merchants.

      It's white, soft and kinda sour, right? It's really good too! I want to find a dessert recipe I can make with it.

      This Awara is more off white and made out of soya beans. Maybe I should make a more detailed post.

      Thanks for dropping by dear :)
