Iresi, Shinkafa or Osikapa, however you want to call it, rice is a major source of carbohydrates, minerals, and vitamins which provides energy for the body.
In Nigeria, this cereal is made into a lot of amazing and delicious dishes such as Fried rice, Coconut rice, and Jollof Rice which is commonly served in most events (remember Nigeria vs Ghana Jollof Rice war…lol).
This cereal is also being cooked and mashed into Tuwo Shinkafa (rice fufu) which is a popular meal in Northern Nigeria.
Interestingly, rice can be made into very interesting healthy snacks such as Fried stuffed rice balls, Rice Krispies, Rice pancakes, rice cakes, Puffed Rice. etc. This is very healthy for both children and adults.
