You might think you know everything about drinks in the Northern part of Nigeria but if you haven’t heard of Kunu gyada then you’re still scratching the surface.
Kunun gyada is a popular Northern Nigeria drink. It’s a gruel like drink consisting of rice boiled in groundnut milk. It is usually served in a bowl and more often drunk alone when prepared thin or eaten like porridge when prepared thick. It may also be sweetened with honey or honey to make a savoury dish. Unlike Kunun Zaki which is made from millet and kunun aya which is made from tiger-nuts, Kunun gyada is made with groundnuts and rice and the end result is usually a sweet and sour drink.

My mom made kunun aya regularly for my siblings and I while growing up in KD, we called it "aya milk" never bothered to learn the real name for it, LOL. I like kunun zaki as well, this gyada one no, had to force myself to finish it the first and only time I had it. Thanks for sharing, your blog is fantastic!
