OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“THERE IS MUCH MORE”
And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers (Deuteronomy 6:23).
The reason for bringing them
out was so He could bring them in! This is how He wants us to approach our salvation in Christ Jesus; He saved us (brought us out of sin), that He might bring us into our inheritance in Him; our place in Him. This mentality will make a
huge difference in your life; it’ll completely change your destiny, and make it one of greatness only.
He didn’t just save us; He did it for a reason. The real message of Christianity isn’t just about the “saviour”—Jesus. Yes, He’s the
Saviour, but He did much more than “saving us.” If “saving us” was all He came to do, that
wouldn’t be Christianity. Being saved was a means to an end.
Now that you’re saved, welcome to a new world, but it’s much more than that. He saved us so He could bring us into oneness with Himself; our place of righteousness, glory, greatness, dominion, and excellence.
In today’s post we will be discussing on “How To Make Agidi (Eko)”.
Agidi or Eko as the name implies is a Nigeria Meal that tastes so good, It is made with corn flour. Tho, it has a similar process when making Ogi but with a slight difference as well. It is best served with Pepper soup, or Akara, Beans, any kind of soup or better still you can eat it like that as lunch.
i. 1 cup corn flour (corn starch)
ii. 700ml of water
iii. Salt to taste
1. Add water in the kettle and boil to a 100ºc, till the water is very hot and bubbling.
2. In a clean dry pan dissolve the corn starch with little normal water, and then pour the hot
water into the pan until the mixture becomes thick. It should look like thick Ogi (pap).
Stir continuously to avoid lump formation.
3. Now add a little water , cover and allow to boil for 5 minutes. Mix properly, and scoop a teaspoon of the Eko into a glass cup of cold water, if it sets , then your Agidi / eko is ready for consumption.
4. Scoop the mixture into any container of choice or use a well prepared plantain/banana leaf for more flavor, in wrapping the Agidi (it all depends on your choice, but most preferable i choose the one with banana leaf) now allow it cool a bit, and your Agidi is ready Enjoy!
Agidi can be eaten with any soup, such as Nsala soup, Ogbono soup, Nigerian Pepper soup or Egusi soup. It can also be enjoyed alone or with Akara.
N/B: When using banana/plantain leafs. Ensure you wrap in a conical shape and then secure the bottom of the leaf and do not full the mixture when adding it to the banana leaf wrap. Wrap both ends and leaf to be well cooled off before serving.
