    1. Remove scales from your fresh fish if it has any

    3. Cut the fish into preferred sizes.
    4. Remove fins and head [optional].
    5. Wash in salted water.
    6. Grind or crush together some pepper and garlic mixed with salt. Add Valido all-in-one seasoning and Valido ginger pure ground to the mixture.
    7. Cut 3 slits into the sides of the fish and rub the mixture into it, making sure it gets into the slits too. Splash the fish with some oil then arrange on a grill pan and grill in an oven under moderate heat for 30-45 minutes depending on the size of your tilapia.



    Put equal amounts of corn and cassava dough into a pan


    Add water and mix together till it is as thick as porridge


    Add salt to taste and put on fire


    Use a flat, wooden thick ladle to stir till it becomes a thick pulp


    Cover it till it is very steamy, that makes it cook well in the core or inside of the banku. Turn the pulp over and over again with the ladle to allow even distribution of heat into it.


    If it is too hard or thick for you add a little water and stir till you have the preferred texture


    When colour changes from white to light cream it is almost ready to dish


    Mould into sizable balls (Like dumplings) with a little bowl and set aside
