How To Prepare Eba and Served With Any Nigerian Soup

Eba is a Nigerian staple food consumed across the country and beyond. It is made from cassava flour, commonly known as Garri.

Garri is a by-product of cassava. He goes through many processes before finally becoming a Garri. But you don’t have to worry about everything. We all buy Garri in stores and Eba we make with them in just five minutes.

Most Nigerian soups are usually served with “swallows,” as we call them in Nigeria. There are only ten of them, and Eba is the most popular.


This article shows you how to make Garri (Eba). It usually takes less than 10 minutes.

What you need (Ingredients)

  • 4 cups of Garri (white or yellow)
  • Bowls
