Success in life and in any endeavour isn’t in anything that one’s physical might or strength produces or can produce; true
success is in the Spirit and by the Spirit. It’s not about something you’re doing or not doing; it’s about your relationship with the
Holy Spirit; that’s what makes the difference, and that’s the most important factor for your success. The Bible says, “So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that
runneth, but of God that sheweth
mercy” (Romans 9:16).

Life is spiritual. Until and unless you walk in the realm which God has brought you into, and function at that level, life will be for you a hard journey. You’ll be making efforts in vain. But if you’re in a passionate, intimate relationship with the Holy Spirit, He’ll breathe on everything you do and see to its success.

In today’s article, i will be discussing on “How To Make Masa (Waina).

I love everything about food, because i am addicted to food. It feels like my world is ending when i do not eat, so that is why i love creating and discovering new recipes.

Talking about Masa (Waina) it is a
popular meal down in the north, a
food regularly consumed and
enjoyed by most northerners. It has almost the same physical appearance like Puff-Puff but not as sweet as puff-puff.

This food is sometimes enjoyed with vegetable soup or Yaji (a dry spicy pepper in the north) There is
a special traditional pan used in
making Masa. It is prepared in a way that when a the first set of Masa is removed from the pan, another set is added instantly so as to make use of the empty space.

i. 4 cups of Rice
ii. 1 tablespoonful Sugar
iii. 1 tablespoonful yeast
iv. 1/2 tablespoonful salt
v. Potash (Kanwa/Akaun)

1. Add 3 cups of rice ( You can decide to increase the rice depending on your quantity) in a medium sized bowl, dissolve the potash in water and pour into the medium sized bowl containing the 3 cups of rice. Allow for 8 hrs.

2.Boil the remaining 1cup of rice, Mash it in the pot with any spatula and then set aside. Wash out the rice which you soaked
in step one above, after that blend it till it becomes smooth.

3. After that, in a clean separate bowl, mix the mashed rice and the well blended rice in, add the sugar , yeast and salt to taste and allow it to rise for 30 minutess or more.

4. Grease each hole of the pan with little vegetable oil. Then Gently drop the mixture into the holes with a deep spartula and add little vegetable oil on each drop. Set the heat and allow it to cook till golden brown and then flip over to cook the other side (Like in the case of pancake).
When both sides of the Masa are golden brown, remove from the pan and serve with Yaji.
