You start appreciating the things that are most distant. I never thought I was such a fan of Nigerian food till I moved from Nigeria. I was always the first person who would want to try Mexican, Italian or Indian but these days I would be craving rice and stew from Olaiya.
A good friend decided to pity me and make me the most delicious stew I have ever tasted till date. This wonder stew was called Ayamashe; I enjoyed it so much I want you to make this for someone you love. You can serve this stew with rice and fried plantain, boiled egg and chilled coke if you must.
Meat; the more, the merrier. Every spoonful should have some meat. You should use a variety, cow leg, shaki, kpomo, round about, liver, etc.
2 cups of palm oil
2 cups of chopped red onions
Eight bell green peppers
Two red peppers (rodo)
- Cut the meat into tiny pieces and boil
- Blend the green peppers and red peppers to form a paste
- the pepper to remove all the moisture and sour taste
- Bleach the palm oil; heat the palm oil in a covered pot for about ten minutes till it becomes almost transparent
- Reduce the heat then add the chopped onions and locust beans
- Put the meats into the oil to fry for about 10 minutes then add the pepper
- Make sure the pepper is properly , keep stirring till the oil floats on top
- Add the meat stock in small quantities, do not let this turn to soup
- Let it for a bit
- Like I serve with steamed rice, fried and chilled coke.
