Below is the image of a well prepared SUYA meat so we are starting with ‘how to make suya’ as one of Nigeria’s most popular dessert recipes.
Suya… the Nigerian recipe is a roasted beef garnished with an ingredient called suya, onions, maggi, pepper/salt to taste and few other things, the name is actually derived from the ingredients used.

How To Make Suya

Nigeria suya is one of the most Nigerian favorite desserts eaten by almost everybody. Personally I love the taste of suya meat and I want to talk about the process of making suya here
It is very simple to prepare, though a little bit of know-how is required for the best result to be achieved.

Initially, suya is made of just beef, now we also have chicken suya and any kind of meat could be forged into a nice SUYA, even though the suya made with beef remains on top of the list.

It is very simple to make if you can get the ingredient (suya) sold in most Nigeria markets by the Hausas and few other people.

First, the meat is sliced in slant shape like it appears above and washed, then a mixture of (maggi, salt, pepper and suya) is sprayed on the surface of the meat in large quantity then roasted in hot coal for twenty to thirty minute

The roasted suya is then served with sliced onions, tomatoes and lotus leaf depending on what you want.

There are over a thousand Nigerian dessert recipes, we have the chin-chin, goat meat barbecue; fish, meat or chicken pepper soup, buns and puff- puff, we also have dodo and Bolle.

While dodo is fried ripe plantain, Bolle is roasted plantain. The making of Bolle is simple, a ripped plantain is roasted on red hot coal until it turns brownish-black.
