How to prepare Akidi and Abach Akidi

I recently visited a family member and she requested i prepare Abacha for her before i leave, and not any other Abacha, but Abacha Akidi. Knowing also how much she loves Akidi, i decided to kill two birds with one some by making two separate dish for her, being an Anambra lady, these dishes are not that common to her people so she always make me prepare some unique Enugu food for her each time i visits. Abacha Akidi is not common and you can never see it being sold in a restaurant or any Abacha joint in Enugu or any other City.

Below are the recipe for both Dishes and Procedure for preparing them.

    Never had Abacha and never heard of Akidi before. My fave Igbo food is nkwobi and it’s what I miss. I still eat it here but it’s not the same.
