Hausa foods are quite delicious. Most of them are pretty easy to make. Few weeks back I decided to add more local Nigerian food recipes to this blog.
I decided to start with Hausa foods. We would then progress to those of yoruba, Igbo, edo, Rivers etc. We are going to include all Known local Nigerian foods.

I sent out an email some days back requesting for Hausa food recipes and pictures. So far, I have gotten a couple of them and we are going to start with these Four Hausa food recipes.

Below are images for some Hausa Foods
Hausa Foods

There should be nothing less than 20 different Hausa recipes on this page and we are going to get there. I would need your help. Send me your Hausa Pictures and recipes. Let’s make it happen. Via my private WhatsApp line (08157668217).
Romon Kan Rago
The picture above was sent by Zars, which is masa/sinasir. Served with ram head soup (romon kan rago)

Let’s return to the topic of the day. The recipes/pictures below were sent over via WhatsApp by members of the Nigerian Kitchen. If you are reading this, then you are also a member. Send me your own pictures of Hausa foods, plus recipes. Thanks. (08157668217).

Dan Wake
The delicious food above is called dan wake. It is made with a combination of beans flour, pepper, potash, kuka etc. This can be made in about 20 minutes and it is usually served with ground cayenne pepper, which is also called (yaji), you can also use Suya Pepper alternatively and choice vegetables. Here is – How To Make Dan Wake

Masa
Masa is made with tuwo (rice). First you divide the rice into two equal parts. Soak half over night and boil the other half. Then grind the two a mix together. That is just the beginning. Masa is delicious and usually served with miyan taushe (another Hausa delicious soup). It can also be enjoyed with yaji (spiced ground pepper) Here is How to Make Masa.
Miyan Geda

This is tuwo shinkafa, served with a popular Hausa groundnut soup (miyan geda). This recipe was provided by Grace Goyit. She showed us how to make this delicious soup as well as tuwo shinkafa (swallow from rice). Groundnut soup is made with ground groundnut as well as white hibiscus (white zobo) Click Here for Miyan Geda – Groundnut soup.

The soup below is called Miyan Zogale which means Moringa Soup. We all know the medicinal value of the moringa plant. This soup makes easy the consumption of moringa leaves. This soup is very easy to make and I think you are going to love it.

Here is the link to the article that shows you how to make Hausa Miyan Zogale

I just made suya, Suya is one of the popular Hausa snacks. You can make it as long as you can find the needed ingredients in your area. Usually, it was just beef suya, but today we make chicken suya and even bush meat suya. Imagine that 😀

    Yes Chy, you are right. Hausa foods are delicious. Some people just don’t like the fact that majority of the foods are dark looking. I have lived in the north for 15 years and pratically enjoy all the foods here. I can also make them. I will send you some of my recipes and pictures soon. Thanks for the great work you are doing.

    Thanks for the huasa recipes, I recently met an Hausa guy in the UK. I am from the western part of Nigeria and knows almost nothing about northern foods. The guy doesn’t bother me about making his tribal foods since he grew up in the UK and he is very ok with whatever he gets but I just want to learn about hausa foods in case we end up getting married in the future.
