Don’t throw that garri away oh! You can also use it to quickly make eba and tin tomato stew

Tin tomato- ₦70, dry pepper- ₦50, maggi- ₦20 and leftover garri. Enough money left over!

We didn’t mention Indomie Relish here though!

Another saviour is no other than concoction rice!

Rice, tin tomato, cray fish, Maggi and palm oil, dazzal!
