I tried to find it bottled online. Even a restaurant that might serve it. There is a substantial African community in the Denver area. No luck.

If someone does make this available commercially, I bet they will make a lot of money.

That reminds me. I need to ask my local Mexican place if they'll sell me their hot sauce next time I'm there

This is a big step up from the Tankora powder article where they don't even tell you what's in it.

Now if they could just give you a recipe, instead of a solid wall of crap.

Once again, the last line of the article has a link. Why Subby didn't just post that here and in the Tankora article would be a mystery if we didn't know one salient fact: Subby is a twit.

God forbid that in a tab inundated with Delish nonsense, Claire's life hacks, and shiatty lists that someone would submit an article that others could possibly find interesting.

You can have an article that's all fluff and doesn't tell you how to make it or one with half the fluff by the same author that gives you an actual recipe. Gee, I wonder which one most of us would rather spend time on.

Sounds tasty. Finding Nigerian curry powder around here will be tricky, but I think I can mix my own with spices I can get here.

My favorite thing, on the entire internet is articles about other web pages.

Yeah, I guess it's easy to miss the huge bolded "get the recipe" box immediately following the article.

I mean the article is about the subject matter of the article.  Not sure what you're getting at.


Whining about having to scroll or click through to free recipes might not be the single dumbest thing on the internet, but it's certainly up there.

When I've had it, there were few or no sweet red peppers, lots of scotch bonnet peppers, the only oil was palm oil (from the oil palm tree in the yard), and they sometimes added a green leaf called bitter leaf. I tried making it in Canada, but it just didn't taste the same. One problem was the tomatoes - the ones in Nigeria had a really pronounced tomato flavor, and the ones in Canada just don't. Getting fresh palm oil is an issue as well.

A whole article that says "This is great! But we won't tell you shiat about how to make it. But buried at the end (not in "a big box") is a link to the article that tells people what they're interested in. It still says it's great, but it also includes information readers want. You screwed up twice in the same way. That shouldn't be hard to understand, just try to do better next time.

The recipe is a different page on the same site by the same author.  In the hierarchy of clickbait, internal linking is fairly benign.  If you have beef, it's with subby for not linking directly to the recipe page.

The article is profiling the dish and two women chefs and how they're bringing Nigerian cooking to their areas. So it's not just some "how to do this" piece nor is it intended to be. Then they provide a link to the recipe in a big farking box immediately following the article. If you had a hard time seeing it then I suggest getting your vision checked because it's article length wide on mobile and desktop browsers.

The do this because on the site itself you can just browse by recipe alone, and whiny biatches on the internet complain that they have to scroll through lengthy articles before getting to the recipe. So they're keeping it separate here.

First off, subby says this is for breakfast lunch and dinner but there is no liquor in it. I mean what is the farking point? And it would have been easy enough to say, dump some chopped tomato, garlic, ginger, and curry powder into some enchilada sauce and you're done, but no. It needs to go to a separate link after all that B S. At least on the new link they give you the recipe that Nigeria want's to share with the world. Do you know how you can tell the recipe is authentic?
