Hey Lovelies

I love akara especially when it’s hot and a bit spicy. I remember when I was younger, my aunt used to make akara almost every Saturday morning. It was a weekend breakfast staple for a while and it was something we all loved, we used to go to the kitchen to get the crumbs before it was served, those were the good ol’days.

This days, I buy akara from the road side, its one of the most famous street food till today, and if you are not a nigerian and you plans on coming to nigeria on a travel experience you should try the akara, its a delight.
