Tuwo Shinkafa (Rice Meal) And Miyan Taushe (Pumpkin Soup)

Tuwo Shinkafa (Rice Meal) is a Northern delicacy that is prepared with rice. It is surprisingly
easy to make. It can be eaten with any Nigerian native soup. However, I always recommend that
you eat it with Miyan Taushe (Pumpkin soup) which I have a bias for.

  • Rice ( Medium or short grain)
  •  Water


  1. Wash rice.
  2. Pour it in a pot, pour enough water just above the rice, and cook on medium heat.
  3. When the water dries up, mash it between your fingers to check the softness.
  4. If it is still a little hard, pour more water and leave to cook on low heat.
  5. Use a wooden spoon to mash the rice to bring it together.
  6. Once satisfied, pick the rice in little quantities and mash with a spatula. Fold until it turns into a mass of Tuwo. Alternatively, continue to stir and mash until it forms a nice lump.
  7. Cover and leave for two minutes to steam.
  8. Serve the dish with preferred soup.
