These 8 Combinations Will Certify Your Garri Platinum.

A lot of people have termed garri the ‘poverty food’ of Nigeria.

I am here to prove to you that this isn’t always true.

Most people don’t realise how much of a special food garri is.

It goes beyond just pouring water inside your garri.

I’m going to help you explore the world of garri.

You know, switch up your taste buds a bit.

The most basic combination is Garri and groundnut. Clearly.

That’s our relaxation food, or emergency food. Depends on how you look at it.

There’s also Garri Cake. If you went to a Nigerian boarding school, you probably know what this is.

Made from garri, a little water and whatever ingredient you can possibly add, till it takes the cake shape.

Another rather basic one will be Garri and milk. If you want to be filled to the brim, just have garrison and milk.

Not only is it sweet, it is filling. What else could you possibly ask for?

Garri also goes very well with coconut. I don’t even want to start. I promise you, this is fire.

If you try it and don’t like it, you can keep it for me.

If you come from a Nigerian home and you’ve never had beans and garri, I dont know what to say.

But your case will be taken up with the Council of Garri Consumers, Nigeria.

Let’s look into garri and asun… no, no, garri and fish. Actually no, garri and suya.

Ha, I’m actually getting hungry for some reason.

Another garri combination as seen in Nigerian homes will be moin-moin and garri.

Actually, I think it’s a little disrespectful to garri to eat moin moin without it.

There’s also a Nigerian snack called kuli kuli. It’s kind of hard to chew, but it is worth the stress.

With a little bit of garrison to push it down, life is much easier.

You should keep in mind that with all of these combinations, it’s important to sweeten your garri with sugar.

Because just like Will Smith and Jada Smith, garri and sugar are life partners.
