I’m currently in England and like most Nigerians know,it’s when you are away from home that you miss local food the most!! Thank God for those dodgy looking middle eastern and African food stores that are hidden in certain areas of England. They’ve saved my life!!
So I loved Ofada stew before I got here and always have! Between you and I though I had never tried it until now. However nothing keeps this foodie down!! As long as it’s hands that I need to prepare it,let’s go! So I did some research and threw it down in the kitchen. Here’s how I did it.
2 cups red oil
1/2 kilograms beef/shaki
5 large green peppers
2teaspoons of tinned tomato paste(thickener)
Iru or locust beans
1. Teaspoon cray fish
3 knorr cubes
1 onion bulb
Salt to taste
Here’s me bleaching the palm oil and boiling my assorted meat at the same time. To bleach the oil simply heat it in a pan till the oil is no longer bright red but a little darker in shade than groundnut oil. Season beef and shaki with knorr cubes and salt. The bleaching process should take about 15 minutes. The meat cooking process should take about 40 minutes
Wash peppers and deseed them then blend in a food processor or blender
