African Masa Recipe
The Nigerian Northerners are known for their healthy and delicious meals and I was not too surprised the very first time I ate Masa.
Servings 6 People
- 3 Cups Rice - use The Tuwo Rice or Jasmine Rice
- 3 Tablespoons Rice Pre-cooked
- 2 Teaspoons Yeast Active dry
- A little bit of potash or about a Teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 4 Tablespoons Sugar more or less
- 1 Cup Water a little more or less + 1/4 Cup for proofing the Yeast
- Vegetable Oil
- Pinch of Salt
Soak the Rice for at least 8 hours or better still leave overnight
Rinse the Rice and blend it together with the pre-cooked Rice until creamy (remember to add the water before blending).
proof the Yeast by mixing the Yeast, sugar and water and set aside
Add the Salt, Sugar and proofed Yeast to the Rice batter and mix together
Cover up the mixture for about 6 - 8 hours (you can as well leave overnight) - Use a very large bowl for this in order to save you from wasting your Rice and cleaning up your surface because the Rice mixture will rise so high before it collapses.
Add just a tiny bit of Oil in your Pan or skillet and fry
Fry both side till golden brown and serve with Honey,Maple, Hot Sauce, Suya........ and ENJOY!
