Beans and Sweetcorn Pottage (Adalu)

Beans and sweetcorn pottage (Adalu) is a simple recipe to replicate and the addition of sweetcorn gives it extra flavor and taste. You can use any black-eyed beans you like, white black-eyed, honey beans, brown beans, drum beans. If you’re using ground crayfish make sure you don’t use too much of it so it doesn’t overpower the flavor.

Beans and Sweetcorn Pottage (Adalu) could be prepared thick or little bit watery so, decide on the consistency, put the consistency you want in mind when you’re adding water to boil the beans. I didn’t make it too thick or too watery consistency.  You can add more corn or use lesser corn.
