Oh My God!! I've got this crazy, mad, insane, all consuming craving for Eko (Agidi)!!!!!!!!!! It's so bad I have dreams about it. Huge basinfuls of the stuff wrapped in fresh banana leaves, eaten with some fresh, hot palm oil stew.

Chei, I could just cry with longing.

@Ngozi: Mine too! Just like Akara - I have never been able to successfully make it - it always falls apart in the oil. So we always bought it from the woman who sat round the corner from our house frying fresh akara.

If you knew how to make it, then you could ask someone to bring you some dry 'pap' from naija. We call it OGI in Calabar. Who knows some friend coming over here may have mercy on you and bring some. Just Ask.

I on the other hand am having serious craving for 404. As I'm sitting here typing this, I can almost picture a steaming plate being placed in front of me, perceive the aroma of the scented leaves used in making it and the palmwine that will be used to wash it dwon. *SIGH* And No - I'm not pregnant either. LOL

@ Calabar gal: 404??? Tell me you're not serious. For real? Is it like Ise-Ewu (Goat head?)

I have some dry Ogi (pap, Akamu) here but don't know how to make Eko from it. :-(

I think you make Agidi the same way you make normal ogi just that you use stock (meat, chicken) instead of just plain water and then u wrap it in the leaves and allow it to set. Thats how me and my sisters used to make Agidi in my younger days and I'm not sure if those who make it in commercial quantities use the same technique. Its worth a trial anyway if you've got the dry pap at home.
