Since my friend brought me back a Molinillo and some Abuelita (Mexican Chocolate), I've been looking for an excuse to make some hot chocolate. The addition of dried Persian rose petals gives it a subtle fragrance and a slightly eastern flavour. —Kitchen Butterfly
500 - 600ml fresh milk (full fat or semi-skimmed)
whole dried red chili, broken in half
dried rose petals (certified for cooking/eating)
For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
