KFB Foodie Talk: How to make Wara chicken bread roll

For 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  ;).

you’ve been to the northern part of Nigeria, the name wara wouldn’t be
an unfamiliar term to you. It’s also not uncommon to find wara sellers,
mostly fulani women hawking pots of white wara in street corners. Simply
put, wara is locally made cheese which is commonly sold in parts of the
country where there’s access to fresh milk.
are two major types of wara i.e wara milk and wara soya made from milk
and soya respectively. The uncooked curd is known a cream cheese which
is the major ingredient we’d be using for this. The cooked curd is what
is mostly available by the sellers. It has a rubbery texture and is used
in making beske, a golden brown snack made from deep fried cheese curd.
If you can’t find fresh wara milk around your vicinity, simply use any
prepacked cream cheese you can afford. I love making this for breakfast
and the aroma it leaves the house with is usually breathtaking. This i’m
sure you’ll love it too.
