our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column – handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature – is basically for ladies and
‘guys’ that are interested in learning how to cook better ;).
throwback moments right now 😀 😀 :D. One Of my most vivid childhood memories
has to do with this popular local sweet. It wasn’t the type of sweet you’d find
in supermarkets or stores but on the streets where it goes by different names
such as ‘sweet alagbon’,’Chalbin mallam’, ‘Black Tofi’, ‘gulisua’ etc. Back then
as a kid, my friends and i usually hung strings of baba dudu around our necks
as ‘Bullets’ when playing ‘police and thief’. Those
were the simple days when you could actually do a whole lot with 1 naira and
below so buying this sweet was no biggie as a kid…lol!. Baba dudu is a dark
brown rock hard candy made with coconut milk and sugar then wrapped in
transparent nylons and made into strings. Its got a sweet bitter taste but
• 1 small sauce pan
• 1 small Pot
• A wooden spatula/whisk for mixing
• 2 Transparent nylons
liquid evaporates leaving the concentrate.
Step 2: On medium heat, place the sugar in a separate sauce
pan and heat to melt.
Step 3: Next, gently pour the coconut concentrate into the melted sugar
and mix to incorporate.
Step 5: Gently turn off and leave to cool for a very short while. This
is done so it wouldn’t burn the nylon.
Step 6: Open up the nylon and scoop the hot candy into it leaving spaces
in between. This should be done quickly because as the candy cools, it hardens.
quickest ways to getting Diabetes…..lol!
