15 Cameroonian Meals the Whole World Should be Enjoying
One of the things Cameroon is blessed with is food! There is so much variety in dishes and so many ways to use main ingredients. I’m making this post to honour Cameroonian food and tell the world that if you’ve never eaten Cameroonian, then you are missing out on a whole lot. Here are fifteen Cameroon meals the whole world, including you, should be enjoying.

1. Egusi Pudding

This is a savoury pudding made out of melon seeds, known in Cameroon as Egusi. If cake had a savoury sister, this is it! Get the recipe here.

2. Koki Beans

Believe me when I say this is the most ingenious way to cook black eyed peas. It is an almost melt in the mouth bite that is divine when paired with boiled plantains. Get the recipe here.
