Egg Plant Swallow ( Keto Substitute For Amala)
Egg Plant Swallow Recipe
Today’s recipe, the egg plant swallow, is an answer to the cry of our sisters from the western part of Nigeria living the Keto lifestyle.
Amala is the swallow that goes very well with the ewedu soup. But, amala being made from yam and plantain flour is high in carbs and is sure to take you out of ketosis.
This egg plant swallow is the Keto Substitute for amala in every sense of the word substitute. Right from the color to the consistency and even the way it feels on the fingers not to mention the smoothness down the throat with the “draw”soup.
I’m already salivating!
Let’s get to it.
