The meal before you is called "Asa Abukpa" meaning corn or maize pottage. Abukpa means corn or maize in my native dialect, Ibibio. I hope we are on the same page now.


How is it prepared?

I have an answer for you if that's your question.

First off, the ingredients needed to prepare this meal includes:

  • maize or corn
  • pumpkin leaves
  • palm oil
  • perewinkle
  • and other food spicies

The Process

After harvesting your corn from the farm, you take out the seeds from the maize stalk because you won't need the stalk. This is done for a desired or choice quantity.

Having done that, you grind the maize seeds till they become homogeneous. Naturally, it will contain some percentage of water. Sorry, I didn't take a photo of this ☹️.

Place a pot on fire containing water. Put th grinded maize in small lumps or sizes into the boiling water. Allow to boil for a while.

Add palm oil and the your vegetable leaves.
