Nigerian Pap (Ogi)

April 08, 2019

Ogi or pap is one of the best and most common cereal in Nigeria. I'm not sure where it originated from but it's common in all part of Nigeria. It is made with corn, millet or sorghum depending on the individual.
Pap can be taken with bean cake, brownies, fruits, nuts, milk etc. Most Nigerians prefer their pap with milk, akara or moimoi, but I love having mine with mixed fruits and nuts.
Ogi can be sweetened with sugar, bananas or honey.

 Corn paste (raw ogi)
Milk (optional)
Fruits and nuts (optional)
Sweetners (optional)

1. Boil your water in a kettle on medium heat
2. Take a clean pot and  Mix your raw ogi with clean water, and sugar(optional). The thickness should not be too thin or too thick.
3. When the water has boiled place the pot   that contains the ogi on medium heat, and gently add the hot water to the ogi.
4. Stir till your desired consistency is reached.
5. Let the mixture steam for a minute.
6. Turn off the heat and add any toppings(fruits and nuts) of your choice.
