Suya spice

Suya spice!

The thought of suya makes me happy. Suya is a popular street food in Nigeria and it’s particularly sold in the night (I really don’t know why, if you know the reason please let me know by commenting down below)

I love meat, forget fitfam, I can never say No to meat! Suya was my go to dinner at a particular time.

I always tell any mallam I’m buying Suya from, I want plenty pepper 😋.. I would buy the suya in two part, one part to satisfy my cravings and the other to make noodles. If you haven’t tried Suya with noodles you’ve gotta try it out. It’s on point.The Yoruba girl that I am is telling you not to hoard pepper especially Suya pepper lol

My love for Suya meat made me inquisitive about how it is made. I found out the spice is really easy to make. It’s just a blend of spices. The spice is the real deal, you can add it to any meal: pasta, noodles, grilled fish, even Jollof rice. I’ve been adding the spice to every meal I make and it’s so tasty.
