STEP 3: Slice the onions into small pieces and put them inside.

STEP 4: Add a little water and stir it together. Then;

STEP 5: If you choose to make use of eggs, whisk the eggs in a small bowl and add your seasoning cubes to taste.

STEP 6: Add water gradually until it is well combined or mixed. Then;

STEP 7: Place a frying pan over medium or low heat and add some oil – just a little vegetable oil.

STEP 8: When the vegetable oil gets hot, scoop in the batter. When frying, you will see bubbles on top of the Wainan Fulawa.

STEP 9: Flip it to the other side and allow it to fry for 2 minutes, but on low heat. Repeat the process until you are done with the batter.

STEP 10: When done, turn off the heat, and your Wainan Fulawa is done.

How to Serve Wainan Fulawa

It is served with ground dry pepper, and if you like, you could take it with fried palm oil. More so, Kunun Gyada, Kunun Tsamiya, Kunun Tamba, and most Kunus will go with it.

It tastes better when served hot.

Occasions to Serve Wainan Fulawa Best

This delicacy can be prepared any day, anytime, anywhere. As a result, you can take it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, naming ceremonies, sallah periods, birthday parties, wedding ceremonies, etc.

Wainan Fulawa is just like Sinasir in terms of storage. It is best stored in a cool, dry place, like a warmer. Also, it can last for two days. It makes it last longer when stored in a refrigerator.

Nutritional Value of Wainan Fulawa

Wainan Fulawa is primarily composed of carbs but also has moderate amounts of protein. Here are the nutrition facts for 3.5 ounces, which is equivalent to 100 grams of whole-grain wheat flour: calories (340), water (11%), protein (13.2 grams), sugar (0.4 grams), carbs (72 grams), fiber (10.7 grams), and fat (2.5 grams).

In addition, eating Wainan Fulawa has many health benefits which make it an interesting delicacy.


Wainan Fulawa’s recipe is delicious, as a lot of people I know have testified. It is one of my favorite local delicacies, and I love to take it for breakfast.

It will interest you to know that you don’t necessarily need to fry it with vegetable oil, palm oil too can do the job just fine.
