Home made Pap (Ogi)


           

Most families in Nigeria make pap for breakfast. Pap is made from corn

Growing up back home in Nigeria i was brought up with pap and i decided to make some for my baby so he can get used to the Nigerian/African cuisine. I have been wanting to make pap for a long time, and when i finally decided to give it a try last week, it turned out great.

Ingredients:

1 kg yellow dry  corn
Blender
Sieve / cheesecloth

Procedure:

Soak corn in water for 4-5 days until tender
Change the water every day
Blend the corn in a blender until smooth
Sieve corn to remove corn chaff
Let the liquid mixture settle for 3 hours
Pour out the excess water, the pap will settle at the bottom of the bowl
Transfer into a cheesecloth/ bag so the water can drip away
Pap can be stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to prepare it
