  • 1 egg per person
  • 1 drop Akabanga chili oil


  1. You need to hard boil how ever many eggs you need, 1 per person as an appetizer or snack.  I like to use my instapot simply put the eggs on the bottom add 1 cup of water and put on manual high for 5 minutes.  The eggs come out perfect every time.

  2. Serve with Akabanga chili oil. One or two drops is all you need of this fiery chili oil to get the authentic flavor of Rwanda.
