Mojoko Ewusi

Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but Equacoco as descibed above, as a Bakweri dish has always been and is simply known as "Equacoco", not "Equan or Equang". These are are two different dishes.

Moka mo jackai

Iya Mojoko l think you are right because "Equang" and "equacoco"are two different dishes.Equacoco is a typical Bakweri dish that we all know.It is eaten with "Ngonya Mosaka"Palmnut soup or any of those given above.Equang Dish has it Origin from the Oroko folk and is prepared totally different from equacoco.May be l am also wronge.

Mengolo mea Likenya

I am in total agreement. The recipe above should be in reference to equacoco and not equang. Equang is grated cocoyams rapped in soft leaf vegetable such as spinach, the tender young leaves of some varieties of cocoyams, perhaps cabbage etc. Unlike in equacoco, the vegetable wrap in equang is not removed eventually but stays on to be eaten.

I agree with the others that this recipe is for equacocco and not eqang.

Paul Blackmore

can anybody give me the recipe for the Equan that I enjoyed so much when living in Limbe.
The distinctive flavour of this came from the spice, bush onion which was quite strong in the flavour.

Also does anybody have a recipe for the fantastic Quacoco, served at the River Side Club in Limbe (only on Saturdays) I enjoyed this dish with either smocked or stock fish. very nice food.
