Fura is a nutritious cereal meal originating from the northern part of Nigeria. Made from millets and spices .
This meal is prepared into balls which are then blended with fresh milk or yoghurts.
Toppings like shredded coconuts, berries , and peanuts and dates can be added
Locally it is blended in a calabash with a special spoon.
An elderly lady who babysat us at our young age was an expert at using the calabash and spoon and this was a process my sister and I enjoyed watching as we waited for our bowls of fura .
This evening I decide to call a friend I haven’t heard from for a quite some time. After a little chat about our well-being and life in general, we talked about fura and how I missed it since I was away from home. Luckily for me , my friend had some and sent them to me ..
So, I am having fura for dinner 🦋🦋.
If the thought of a friend, family member or acquaintance crosses your mind , do give them a call to say hi . It might be what they need at that point in time 🦋.
