It will interest you to know that Garin Danwake has different types.

All these types of garin danwake are prepared the same way. The only difference is that instead of the cassava we will be using as one of the ingredients in this article, substitute it for either wheat or guinea corn. It’s that simple!

Ingredients for Making Garin Danwake


Procedures for Making Garin Danwake

  1. Spread the beans on the tray and pick up any unwanted particles or dirt. Do the same for the wheat (alkama) and bambara beans (gurjiya).
  2. Pour the dried cassava (rogo) into the dry mill and grind until it turns coarse (not too soft). Alternatively, you could use a mortar and pound. When you are done, pack it and put it in the bowl.

  3. Add the beans (wake), bambara beans (gurjiya), and wheat (alkama) inside the bowl.

  4. Add powdered kuka (garin kuka) and potash (kanwa) and mix all of the content very well.

  5. Take the mixed content to a grinding machine until soft.

  6. Finally, spread it on a clean surface, such as a tray or mat, and allow it to cool. Ensure you do not use it while hot. This will result in not having a good Danwake.


How to Store Garin Danwake

Always store your garin danwake in a tight container or leather bag to avoid air and unwanted particles getting into it.

Nevertheless, it is at its best when used within a month of its preparation.
