Banga Rice


Banga Rice is a dish that is popular among the Naija-Delta people. Every time I traveled back home to Nigeria, I make it a point to eat Banga Rice. It has such an authentic taste, I always told my self that I must make it! So I finally did with the help of some tips from my Warri friends, the dish came out so yummy.
