More information & tips
1) To get the authentic Flavour and aroma of the Ewa agoyin sauce, you need to use the right dried peppers and in the right form (dried ones please!).
2) Palm oil is not the healthiest but using enough palm oil is essential in this recipe. Bleaching it is also required in order to get the right aroma of the sauce.
3) The beans are not usually soaked. Soaking loosens the skin off the beans which causes it to spit before cooking- which will give your mashed beans a slightly different texture. However, make sure your beans are extremely soft before mashing.
4) If you would like your sauce to have a gritty texture, add some broken beans or if you do not have this, then add 1-2 tbs of the mashed beans into the sauce and mix.
