beans and corn adalu recipe

My Recipe Joint brings you a complete guide on how to make Bean and Corn (Adalu). This is a staple in Nigeria that can be prepared using the simple steps below.

If you need a meal for this corn season, Beans and Corn (known as Adalu in Yoruba) is for you. Just like how we cook Corn and Ukwa, Beans and Corn is a great combo. I prefer it to Rice and Beans.
