Dambu Nama Cheese Biscuits is how I am deciding to enter 2018 on my blog. Hello!!! Things got really busy last year so my blogging suffered in the process. I am back now and I want to share some of my latest creations. I will share a lot of what I have been working on for a few months but in the meantime, here is a recipe.
So a little story about this one, I was craving the red lobster cheese biscuits. I decided to look up a recipe and found a common thread in all of them. Flour, mayonnaise, cheese were the main ingredients and I decided to make it plain initially. I started thinking of how I could jazz it up. I remembered Nok made Iru biscuits when they first started and the idea of iru was too overwhelming for me at the time so I decided to do something else.
This made me start thinking of the concept of cheese biscuits and i remembered some people add slices of ham. I then thought what can I add? Kilishi? No! Too chewy. Suya? No! Not soft enough. Dambu nama? Bingo!
Dambu Nama is a delicacy from Northern Nigeria. Its shredded beef that is pounded and basically transformed into cotton wool texture. This is pulled beef to the next level. It was soft enough to work for what I needed it to do.
