Effinrin Sauce ( Scent leaf sauce) : : Scent leaves and Utazi leaves are two favored herbs when it comes to local grills. Sometimes I simply buy my roast yam or plantain and head home to enjoy with my Effirin Sauce. By the way boiled versions of these carbs pair well with the sauce. : : Okay I know yam is more difficult to roast , you have to gauge the intensity of the charcoal heat to get it cooked but not completely burnt. But your Boli can be roasted easily in the oven. So what are waiting for? ——— Vote or no vote today, we move. : : Have a nice weekend. #1qfoodplatter #1qfoodplattervideos #yam #roastplantain #nigerianstreetfood #nigerianfood #nigeriancuisine #scentleaf #nigerianfoodblogger
