Dan Sululu is a local northern Nigerian dish mostly consumed by the Hausas specifically. It is delicious, quite fast and easy to prepare, kind like Danwake. Also, it is usually common among the less privileged and average families. In this article, I will be teaching you how to make Dan Sululu recipe. Stay with me.
This delicacy basically contains cassava. The back of the cassava is peeled and then spread under the sun to dry. When dried, it is then taken and grinded into fine flour. Interestingly, you do not need to pass through this process as the cassava flour can be found in our local markets at affordable prices.
Without any further ado, let’s dive into its preparation!
We will be needing the following ingredients to make this delicious northern Nigerian cuisine:
3 cups of cassava flour
½ cup of palm oil
5 average cups of water
A small piece of potash (kanwa)
Procedure for Preparing Dan Sululu
STEP 1: Grind the dried cassava into powder and allow it to cool.
STEP 2: Sieve the powder to remove the shafts and grains. Then;
STEP 3: Add a little soaked potash into the cassava flour.
STEP 4: Pour water and stir till the powder turns into a paste. Ensure it is neither too hard nor too soft.
STEP 5: Over medium heat, get a pot containing water and allow to boil.
STEP 6: Pinch and dump the dough into the boiling water in the desired shape and size. Stir the boiling dumplings with a wooden spoon or any spoon of your choice and allow them to boil for about 10 – 15minutes.
STEP 7: Turn off the cooker and allow the dumplings to cool a little. This is to avoid possible injury when embarking on the next step.
STEP 8: Extract the dumplings from the boiling pot and put them in clean cold water. Wash and drain until the water turns somewhat clean, and your Dansululu delicacy is done.
STEP 9: Next, get your frying pan over low heat, add some vegetable oil into it. Also, slice your onions and add them to the frying pan. Allow frying for 5 minutes.
How to Serve Dan Sululu
Normally, Dansululu is dished with a little palm oil or vegetable oil, maggi, salt, and grinded pepper. Nowadays, people prepare to garnish it more by adding cabbage, boiled egg, raw sliced tomato, and meat cut into small pieces.
Occasions to Serve Dan Sululu Best
Most times, this delicacy is consumed as an appetizer. However, it can be taken as any of the three basic meals – breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also, it is best to know that making it for any Eids, festive periods, or any get-together consisting of a considerable number of people isn’t advisable because it will take a lot of time and effort to prepare.
How to Store Dan Sululu
Just like Danwake, Dan Sululu doesn’t last for more than 24 hours. On that note, I will advise you to prepare just the quantity enough for present consumption to avoid spoilage.
Nutritional Value of Dan Sululu
Dan Sululu contains basically cassava, which is a good source of carbohydrates. It will give us the necessary energy we need to carry out our daily activities. Because it is dished with other ingredients such as pepper, onion, maggi, cabbage, boiled, they increase its richness in nutrients.
As you have seen, making Dan Sululu is like a walk in the park as only a little effort is needed. It also doesn’t consume much of your time except if you intend to make it in large quantities like for festivals, naming ceremonies, etc.
Now that you know how to make Dan Sululu recipe, tell me in the comments section below when you will be making yours.
