How To Make Wara

I once heard about the delicacy Wara and I wondered what it was. Years later, I heard about it again and how delicious it is and it piqued my interest as a food lover. I tried it and let’s just say that I haven’t looked back since then.


3 cups, Soybeans
2 tbsps, Apple cider vinegar or lime juice
Seasoning cubes
Palm oil


  • Soak the soybeans overnight. Drain and blend (add water while blending).
  • Strain with a cloth or sieve. Then pour the milk into a pot and boil on medium heat for one hour. Stir frequently.
  • Reduce the heat and add the deseeded lime juice but do not stir so it doesn’t become stiff.
  • Turn off the heat and cover the pot. Leave to cool for one hour.
  • Place a cloth over a bowl and put it in the sink (I use a clean handkerchief or the cloth used to make pap) and carefully pour the milk. Squeeze the cloth to get as much milk out.
  • Leave for four to five hours to cool.
  • Dice into desired sizes and season with salt, pepper and seasoning cubes. Deep fry until golden brown.
  • Serve with your choice of stew or pepper soup.
