Because it is mostly cooked with groundnut, Hausas refer to it as Miyan Gyada while it is called Groundnut Soup in English. In this piece, I am going to teach you how to prepare Miyan Gyada.

Salt to taste
2 medium bunches of spinach or ugwu leaves
Procedure for Preparing Miyan Gyada

STEP 2: Place the meat in a clean pot over medium heat. Toss in some onions, spices, and a splash of water. Allow for 20 minutes of cooking time.

STEP 4: Fry the groundnuts in a clean frying pan for 10 minutes. Allow 5 minutes for cooling.
STEP 5: Using your blender, puree the groundnut until smooth, then set it aside.
STEP 6: Mix the tomatoes, peppers, and onions separately. Before you start blending, make sure you add a little water.
STEP 7: Toss the ground pepper and groundnut into the simmering meat and combine to produce a thick paste. Then;
STEP 8: Thoroughly wash your spinach or ugwu and cut or slice it with a chopping board before adding it to the cooking pot.

STEP 10: Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow 10 minutes for cooking.
STEP 11: Your Miyan Gyada or Groundnut Soup is ready for consumption.
Swallow that Goes with Miyan Gyada Best
When eaten with Tuwon Shinkafa or Tuwon Masara, it’s excellent. Teba (Eba), Tuwon Semo, and other swallows are possible. It also goes well with Waina, Sinasir, and Fankasau.
How to Serve Miyan Gyada
Miyan Gyada is best served hot with a glass of chilled water or your favorite beverage.
Occasions to Serve Miyan Gyada Best
It can be eaten as one of the three main meals of the day. It could also be offered at weddings, festivals, walima, and other special occasions.
How to Store Miyan Gyada
It can be refrigerated and so kept for several days as long as electricity is available. However, in the absence of a refrigerator, it will only last a few days, and only if you keep warming it in the mornings and evenings. It’s crucial to remember that, while you can preserve it, the taste will be different than when it was freshly prepared.
Nutritional Value of Miyan Gyada
Miyan Gyada is high in energy and contains nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins that are beneficial to one’s overall health.
Although its preparation is not simple, you will find that it is well worth the time you put into it because the taste is out of this world. You should try and prepare Miyan Gyada for yourself or your family now that you know how to make it.
