When I went to one of my friend’s house, they prepared this gravy for dinner. Oh man !! I really fell in love with that since then. It’s been yrs since I prepared, so I don’t remember the recipe exactly. Each time I prepare this, I try to get to the original. Am trying still, when I get it exactly, I will update this post with the additional details.
