It's interesting how beans can be used to make various delicacies in it's different states. In it's whole state, we get a beans and sauce dish and even at it's peeled state, we get various meals like moin moin (beans pudding), gbegiri (blended beans soup).

Recently, I took some days off work and traveled with my family to Ekiti State, Nigeria (The land of Pounded yam, I bet the Yorubas will relate) I literally ate pounded yam all through my nights there and as a result gained 3 kg, since then I've been nagging about the extra fat. I decided to have salad all through this week (don't judge me, Unhealthy Fat is my enemy). After having proper veggies salad for two days, I got bored and decided to try something exciting. Healthy eating does not have to be boring and that's why many people have developed exciting ways to stay healthy and eat well.

Welcome to another Habbies-How-To series.

So I have a confession about Basmati Rice. I don't know how to eat plain basmati rice (I wish someone else can relate with this.) So instead of rejecting plain rice, why not try making it a different way? I've tried jollof basmati, fried basmati rice and beyond reasonable doubts, in both scenarios, the taste was never displeasing to the mouth.

Here's another way to have your rice without all the "mende-mende"

Ingredients for 4 servings

2 tablespoon of canola oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium sized onion, diced
2 cups of basmati rice
Knorr cubes
fresh herbs (mints, parsley)
2 tablespoons of Curry powder


  • First, heat the oil in a pot, add the crushed garlic and onions. saute for about 30 seconds
  • Now add basmati rice, the herbs, curry and other seasoning. Stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes
  • Stir in water (preferably hot water), reduce heat and allow rice to steam so well, until well cooked.
  • Serve with any stew/ sauce of choice.

Chicken Wings Infused with Rose Wine & Teriyaki Sauce

My craving for chicken these days, is out of this world. The whole of last week, I literally kept drooling on chicken pictures I saw social media platforms, the peppered, crispy, tendered, my oh my, maybe it was the coke infused chicken wings from last month that caused it o. I mean, that recipe was the bomb.

Here's another way of getting superb flavors in one chicken dish.


  • 1 cup of Eisberg Rose wine
  • 3 tablespoons of Teriyaki sauce
  • about 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium sized onion, diced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 10 pieces of Chicken wings
  • Juice from 1 lemon


  • Mix all the ingredients in a pan except the wings and lemon. Heat for about 10 minutes and set aside to cool
  • Wash the wings with lemon juice. Stir in the wings and be sure to coat all the parts well.
  • Marinate for as long as you can (Mine was for about 2 days, I literally just left it in the fridge to chill )

  • Pre-heat oven for about 5 minutes, arrange wings in baking pan and place in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
  • Just look at the gravy fro the sauce...Oh-So-Yummy.

  • Enjoy wings with any dish of choice.

  • I made a pepper sauce with the gravy and dipped the wings in the sauce. Bursting flavors all together.

I even designed a picture art for this chicken wings
