Did You Ever Eat "feshelo"?

Feshelo is basicaly like trying to make eba using cold water.

It was kinda popular in secondary boarding schools in Nigeria (where boiling rings and stoves where outlawed). I remember many nights of agony I spent on my bed after a meal of feshelo. But it was a welcomed relife from the hunger pangs that drove us to trying this strange meal anyway.

If you 've ever tried feshelo, share your recipe and/or experience here.

Gari is a coarse flour made from grated cassava. Its a regular staple here in Nigeria. You get eba by stiringgari in hot water. It forms a nice sticky lump to be eaten with soup.

Feshelo is an atempt to make eba with cold water. It doesn't stick. So you need to just keep adding more gari and compacting until you get something you can mould.

It's just some crazy dish baording students in Nigeria tryout sometimes.

Allow me to apologize for my ignorance, but, as you see, my friend, I live in the US.  Could you please explain to me what "gari" is?

well the only way you get the gari to stick togethernwith out the benefit of hot water is to realy pound a good deal of it in limited quantity of water and the stuff ends up being very hard. It's not so easy to digest.
