Oh no o o you guessed wrong! It is not Ofada rice. This is Sunset with the local Bini Epic...

RICE MIMI GIOGIO.... I went back to back in days while I was still in BENIN and you have these women Hawking this hot rice early in the morning wrapped in Broad leaves, stew cooked with bleached Palm oil. The difference with the Ofada stew, (Ayamase) is that Ofada contains a lot of IRU( locusts Beans seeds) and this does not. Ummmmm sunset for me this evening in BENIN with this yum.
