ADALU EPO (BEANS AND CORN RELISH)
Ogun, Oyo and other Southwestern states are noted for menus that consist of palm oil and other fat enriched nutrients.
One of the meals the men derive pleasure from is the popular beans and corn mixture known as (Adalu epo).
Prepared with either fresh or old corn, the meal is best enjoyed when the maize used is very tender, and there is enough palm oil and crayfish.
Adalu as a meal can be eaten as breakfast or lunch, it can also be used to entertain a first time visitor. It may not be too ideal for dimmer because it takes time to digest. Enjoy this protein/starch enriched meal.
