DAMBU NAMA CHEESE BISCUITS
By Atim Ukoh- Afrolems
So a little story about this one, I was craving the red lobster cheese biscuits. I decided to look up a recipe and found a common thread in all of them. Flour, mayonnaise, cheese were the main ingredients and I decided to make it plain initially. I started thinking of how I could jazz it up. I remembered Nok made Iru biscuits when they first started and the idea of iru was too overwhelming for me at the time so I decided to do something else.

This made me start thinking of the concept of cheese biscuits and I remembered some people add slices of ham. I then thought what can I add? Kilishi? No! Too chewy. Suya? No! Not soft enough. Dambu nama? Bingo!


Dambu Nama is a delicacy from Northern Nigeria. It is shredded beef that is pounded and basically transformed into a cotton wool texture. This is pulled beef to the next level. It was soft enough to work for what I needed it to do.
