Akara is one food enjoyed by many Nigerians. It can be the perfect meal for Saturday mornings. This is because it has this filling effect that just makes you want to have a good sleep after eating it.
Akara can be eaten with Bread, Custard or pap (Ogi). It can be fried with vegetable oil or palm oil and it will still come out fine. Usually, people get their Akara from roadside vendors or restaurants. But what do you do if you love this meal so much, yet you can’t get where to buy it in your locality.
