So in today’s edition of who wants to be a millionaire………………
sorry wrong blog.
For the past 5 months or so I have been in Calabar, in a very remote village in Calabar, and I don’t usually have anything to do except work and the occasional cooking I get up to.
Sometime last week I was feeling a lot down and out, jaded and tired of my work and I needed something to cheer me up, luckily for me I came across this recipe on Afrolems.com and I decided to try it seeing as I was in Calabar and I was hungry.
Here is the recipe on Afrolems, but when I went to the market I didn’t find shrimps and snails and Shaki(tripe) so I substituted for readily available.
– Okro (chopped and pounded)
– Six pieces of beef
– 1 cup of …..
– 1 cup of ponmo
– Ugwu (pumpkin leaves) chopped
– Chopped Uziza leaves
– Dried crayfish
– Knorr maggi
– 5 Atarodo (scotch bonnet pepper) (chopped)
– Palm oil
So I basically seasoned and boiled the beef, ponmo, snail-likr things and stockfish till it was soft, then I added the pepper and crayfish, tasted to make sure it was on point.
then I added the okro and uziza and ugwu, let it simmer for a bit(like 30 seconds) then I put the palm-oil and stirred it and left to simmer on low heat.
Then I served with yellow garri. Tenzzz
