How to prepare Nigerian Rama Salad


Kwado is simply the English word for salad. It is yet another meal that people adore despite being rarely consumed. Perhaps the reason it isn’t consumed more frequently is that rama leaves are less common than other vegetables like spinach, lettuce, and the like. Rama Salad preparation will be covered in this article.

The rama itself and ground kuli kuli are the main components of this dish. It is significant to note that this is one of many salads created using kuli kuli. Others include lettuce, cabbage, and zogale salad, among others.

You can either use fresh or dried rama leaves to prepare this dish. The method for preparing this meal uses fresh rama leaves.

I recall when I was a young child and my mother first showed me how to prepare Kwadon Rama. Although I didn’t know how to prepare it before that day, it was a dish that I actually quite liked. I made a decision to make mine the day I was instructed. It tasted amazing despite the fact that I didn’t properly drain the water from the leaves and it was a touch too moist. Just so you know, that. Okay, let’s get started, shall we?


  • Rama leaves
  • Onions Kuli Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Pepper Bell
  • flavored cubes
  • Salt as desired
  • Pepper flakes (optional)

Steps On Making Rama Salat

STEP 1: Use a knife to cut the Rama leaves into the required sizes, either little or somewhat large.

STEP 2: After giving the Rama a simple water wash, place it in the basket.

STEP 3: Add the rama to the saucepan and cover it with medium heat. Cook for twenty five to thirty minutes.

STEP 4: Wash the onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes and cut them into slices with a knife or a cutting board while the rama is cooking.

STEP 5: involves adding the kuli kuli to a mortar along with the seasoning cubes, a pinch of ginger, cloves, and salt to taste. The mixture is then pounded until it has a coarse texture rather than being powdered. You might either grate it or combine it as an alternative. Everything depends on you. It should be placed on a platter and set away.

STEP 6: Once the rama leaves are thoroughly cooked, remove them from the fire and pour them into the colander to completely drain the water.

STEP 7: Bring the bowl, add your sweet, ground kuli kuli, and then add the drained rama leaves from Step 6 above. Start combining with your clean hands. A spoon could be used, however using your hand will produce the best results.

STEP 8: Return the sliced STEP 4 items to the bowl and stir once more.

STEP 9: The final step is optional; however, you may choose to add ground pepper.

STEP 10: Done! It’s time for your Rama Salad (Kwadon Rama).
