I am very excited about today's recipe because I concocted it in my kitchen. I've been struggling thinking up a name for it and a Potato Curry/Pottage is all that keeps coming to my head. Remember my Vegetable Chicken Curry/Gravy back in 2013? I mentioned in that post that Potato got make sense with this gravy and I was right! 3 years later I experimented with my idea and the results were fantastic!!! Why did I take so long to try it? Let's fast forward to the recipe. Oh, before we fast forward, can we just take a moment to appreciate my food photography journey? LOL. The pictures of that recipe then vs now...the difference is clear. That's growth!

The first time I met Mr Kelechi Amadi Obi was when I was preparing for my wedding in 2014. My wedding was organised by My Big Nigerian Wedding (it was a competition where my husband and I won a free wedding (forreal...see it HERE, HERE, even HERE sef). Mr Kelechi was the official photographer and he took some of our pre-wedding photos. When I met him for the first time I was basically blown away by how charismatic and passionate he was about everything he was talking about. He had a glint in his eye, and he would gesticulate dramatically-it was infectious! LOL. He talked about so many things, Bobo and I were so drawn into his conversations.

Siyabona! Today's activity was one of my highlights in South Africa because it was the day I visited God's Window, the day I rode on an elephant, visited Bourke Lucks Potholes, and the day I visited the Three Rondavels. At night we had a bonfire which was amazeballs! Epic tinz! There is an interesting story of each adventure and I cannot wait to share it with you. You know I love adventure. Come with me.

On the 5th day of our time in South Africa, we moved to Mpumalanga, and it is Zulu which means "the place where the sun rises from"...I even joked about calling Tito my "Mpumalanga" 😍. Mpumalanga is in the East of South Africa. Tourists come here for a variety of reasons but majorly for Kruger National Park which is a huge nature reserve with abundant wildlife including big game and then there is the province's iconic Blyde River Canyon, one of the largest in the world!

Akara is a popular Nigerian food made from beans. The beans is peeled, washed, blended, mixed with a few spices and deep fried. Akara can also be called Bean Cakes\Bean Balls and in some parts of Brazil and other parts of West Africa it is called Acarajé. I know, I know...Akara does not need any introduction, but I have come to the realisation that Nigerians are not the only ones who check out my recipes, hence, the description.
