Recently, I was listening to a business coach saying that puff-puff didn’t know it had great potentials until its collaborated with other finger foods like spring rolls, samosa, fried shrimps, peppered gizzard and snails, to make the classic Nigerian small chop combo (Finger Food) served at social functions.
