Step 3 Once that has simmer, you can add your locust beans and fishes and now add your offals. Let that cook for 3 minutes exactly,now add your salt and your knorr stock cube. Get your spinach and add it as well and cover to simmer for 2 more minutes. Now stir and serve. And your Efo-Riro is good to go!!!!.
Step 4 For the poundo yarn : Get a pot and add a cup of water, allow to boil and then turn down the heat before you add your yam flour, stir vigorously to eliminate all plumbs and lumps. now turn up the heat and allow to cook for 2 minutes, stir vigorously once more and then serve with your Efo- Riro. You can enjoy both with a glass of soda..
