How to Prepare Nigerian Dan Wake

Dan Wake alone is truly dull simply like fufu suppers and it depends on a sauce or side dish for its taste simply like our fufu dinners depend on Nigerian Soups for their preferences.

Typically Dan Wake is presented with ground cayenne pepper (yaji), you can likewise utilize Suya Pepper, hardboiled eggs, sautéed vegetables: onions, cabbage, tomatoes; and you can even observe a few people pulverize stock solid shapes and sprinkle to finish everything. Whatever puts a smile on your face, the Dan Wake is diversion.

For me, I looked far and wide for a delicious sauce to appreciate Dan Wake with and one day I thought that it was: 9jafoodie’s Ultimate Nigerian Stir-sear is a definitive accomplice for Dan Wake. It contains bunches of vegetables, Suya pepper, distinctive Nigerian meats and so on. Go look at it!


The Dan Wake made with the accompanying amounts of fixings were delighted in by 3 individuals.

2 little gathering mugs beans flour

1 little gathering glass cassava flour

2 teaspoons heating soft drink or 2 teaspoons eatable potash

2 tablespoons kuka powder

Hamburger stock

Serve Dan Wake with any or the majority of the accompanying:

Extreme Nigerian Stir-broil

Ground cayenne pepper (yaji)

Suya Pepper (Suya Spice)

Sautéed vegetables

Cut Vegetables





Stock Cubes

Hard bubbled eggs


Whatever amount of Dan Wake you are making, utilize 2 sections of beans flour to 1 part of cassava flour so as I did above, I utilized 2 party measures of beans flour and 1 party measure of cassava flour.

The activity of the cassava flour is to tie the beans flour as it contains loads of starch. In the event that you don’t have cassava flour, utilize plain flour (universally handy flour).

Water is ordinarily used to blend the Dan Wake however I favor utilizing meat stock since it gives it a superior taste instead of the flat taste you get when you blend with water. Despite the fact that I utilize an extremely delectable sauce to eat Dan Wake, the dinner tastes better when it is prepared completely through.

The activity of the eatable potash is to make the Dan Wake balls soft. I utilized preparing soft drink (bicarbonate of soft drink) .

I get the hamburger stock when I plan flame broiled meat. I heat up the meat and store the water (stock) in the cooler for setting up these kind of dinners. Additionally, since I regularly eat Dan Wake with the Ultimate Nigerian Stir-sear, I will utilize a portion of the stock from heating up the meats for the panfry to blend the Dan Wake.

Kuka Powder which is dried and ground baobab leaves is adhesive in nature like Ogbono, not as much as Ogbono however and its activity is to help tie the Dan Wake significantly more.

Nowadays a few people get ready Dan Wake with just generally useful flour however the first customary element for Dan Wake beans flour, attempt both and see which you incline toward.

Before you Start To cook 

There’s very little pre-readiness going ahead with Dan Wake. Interestingly, on the off chance that you are utilizing eatable potash, blend it with a little amount of water and strainer. You will utilize just the fluid, no residue. Put this fluid aside.

Cooking Directions

1.Mix all the dry fixings in a bowl: beans flour, cassava flour, preparing soft drink and kuka powder.

2.If you are utilizing consumable potash, include the arrangement and blend. If not, skirt this progression.

3.Start including the hamburger stock a little bit at a time and blend the Dan Wake fixings in the meantime till you get a delicate sticky mixture . In the event that your meat stock completions despite everything you have not accomplished a delicate sticky batter, proceed with warm water.

4.Once you are content with the batter, put it aside.

5.Pour some water in a pot and set on the stove to bubble. The extent of your pot and the amount of water relies upon the amount of Dan Wake you are making. You need a circumstance where you can put all the shaped dumplings in the water and still have bunches of space for them to swim around.

6.Once the water bubbles, begin forming the Dan Wake batter with your fingertips. You get a little amount of the mixture (about the span of a grown-up fufu swallow) with your fingertips and form into a harsh shape (ought to resemble a vague single adaptable cell lol) and toss into the bubbling water. Rehash till the batter is depleted. You will see that the pieces of Dan Wake hops to the surface of the water when it warms up.


On the off chance that you need the heart molded Dan Wake that you can find in the photograph above (ideal for St. Valentines btw *wink!),

In the event that you utilized palatable potash, the dan wake balls may not rush to rise to the top when warmed however do blend them so they don’t adhere to the base of the pot.
