Here Is How To Prepare A Fluffy Meaty Snack (Danbun Nama)

Dambu Nama, originating from Northern Nigeria has won hearts south of Nigeria. When we thought nothing could top suya and kilishi, we were introduced to this fluffy meaty snack. Now you get to make this in the comfort of your home.

Things You Need

500 grams beef

2 pc seasoning cube

2 teaspoons chilli powder

1 pc onion

1 pc garlic

3 tbspsyaji (suya spice)

2 tbsps vegetable oil

1 teaspoon ginger powder


  • Wash the meat and cut into chunks.
  • Put meat into a pot with 1½ seasoning cubes, half chopped onions, 2 crushed garlic cloves and ginger powder. Cook with little water until very tender and the meat pulls apart very easily. Ensure water dries out.
  • Put meat on a cutting board and shred the meat using two forks to pull apart in opposite direction. Alternatively pound meat in mortar.
  • Transfer to mixing bowl. Add in the suya spice, remaining ½ seasoning and chilli powder. Mix well and set aside.
  • Pour oil into a wok/frying pan and put on medium heat. Shallow fry the meat and stir constantly until golden brown and crumbly. Ensure the oil is not too much.
  • Allow to cool before serving. Dambu Nama can keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks if kept air tight.
