RECIPE OF THE DAY: Kokoro

Kokoro is a popular crunchy snack with Western Nigerian origins. It is not unusual to find street hawkers carrying this tasty snack around in trays placed on their heads. There are two types of Kokoro sold in local markets with the difference being only in shape as well as a distinction on whether this African snack is spicy vs non-spicy.
