Tubani recipe is another northern Nigerian dish that is primarily consumed by Hausas. It is prepared in three (3) different methods just like Gauda as a result of the differences in the ingredients used.

It can be made with masara and waken soya (maize and soya beans); also, it can be made with white beans and maize alone. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to prepare Tubani in three distinct methods. Please stick with me!

How to Make Tubani Recipe with Masara and Soya Beans

Ingredients

2 cups of maize
2 cups of soya beans
4 spoons of baobab leaf powder (Kuka)
A small piece of potash (kanwa)
Powdered pepper
Vegetable or palm oil or soup
Maggi

Procedure for Preparing Tubani with Masara and Waken Soya

STEP 1: Remove the dirt from the maize and soya beans and thoroughly combine them. (In Hausa, the word cakudawa means’mix.’)

STEP 2: Grind or blend the ingredients until finely ground, then filter into a basin or container. Then, STEP 3: Soak and set aside the potash.

STEP 4: Thoroughly combine the contents of STEP 2 with the kuka (Baobab leaf powder).

STEP 5: Pour the potash into the bowl and thoroughly mix it in.

STEP 6: Next, slowly drizzle in the water while mixing to make a dough that is neither too thick nor too thin.

STEP 7: Fetch the dough with your hand and mould it to the shape you want then set it aside.

STEP 8: Continue until all of the dough has been used up.

STEP 9: In a clean saucepan over medium heat, pour water, place the contents in STEP 7 in the pot, and cover the pot with the lid. Allow for 40 minutes of cooking time, just like Danwake.

STEP 10: Scoop the Tubani one by one after turning off the heat and put in a clean warmer.

STEP 11: Fry your oil for only 2 minutes (vegetable or palm oil).

STEP 12: Your Tubani with masara and wake is ready!
