Ogi is a yoruba word that means Pap in english. It is a cereal pudding made from corn, millet or sorghum. The preparation process is seemingly east. The corn grains are normally soaked in water for a couple of days, then it is sieved to seperate the shafts from the rest of the extract. This extract is left to ferment for another couple of days which then gives us our pap.
Ogi white is also known as white Akamu. It is made from white corn with is rare. It’s very popular among yorubas. We also use it to prepare Eko (pap prepared in form of bolus to be eaten with soup)
