Here are 22 foods Nigerians miss most while living abroad:
1. Pounded Yam and Egusi Soup
Pounded yam is incomplete without Egusi soup – melon soup. Pounded yam is made from boiling yam and pounding it. Nigerians abroad prepare alternative pounded yam using yam flour but it doesn’t taste like the original pounded yam. Although, the Yoruba people are known to be fond of pounded yam, some other Nigerian tribes also love this delicious delicacy.
