Happy new week guys! Hope you had a wonderful weekend? I tried to change the face of the blog by using another theme it is still work in progress so bear with me. Recipe for today is Ayamase stew….So delicious!
Ayamase or ofada rice stew is one of my favorites stew I don’t think I can ever get tired of it. Any time I make this stew that is what I will eat throughout that day. Back home I ate this almost every day at work, I can’t say enough how I like this stew with ofada rice. I always saved the green habanero/rodo anytime I have them, you can tell by looking at it in the picture…lol Try it and I hope you would love it as my family and I always loved (and still love) it. I roasted the meat I used you can use just boiled meat or fried meat.
I have some stew recipes that I posted before you can check them out.
Spicy Fried Stew
- 5 Green bell peppers
- 3 Green habanero/Rodo
- 2 Onion (divided)
- Palm oil (bleached)
- 1/2 Cup Shredded fish
- 1 Tablespoon Ground crayfish
- Meat (your choice)
- 1 Tablespoon Locust beans (iru)
- 1/2 Cup Stock/water
- Some boiled eggs
- Knorr bouillon powder/ cube
- Salt to taste
Remove the seed from the peppers, rinse and roughly blend with one onion.
Clean the fish by soaking it in hot water and salt to remove the dirt. Rinse and set aside.
Rinse the locust beans with water and set aside.
Place a medium saucepan/pot over a medium-high heat. Add oil and bleach (let the oil heat up very well) be careful when bleaching.
Saute the chopped onions, add locust beans(iru), and fry for about 30 seconds, don't fry too long because you don't want it burn.
Add the ground crayfish and the fish.
Add the blended peppers mixture. Stir and cook until the content reduces and the oil floats.
Add the Knorr(or your choice of seasons) and salt. Get the meat out of the oven (I baked the meat) you can use just boiled or fried meat. Cut into small bites or use whatever size you want.
Add the meat and if the content is too thick add some beef stock or water, then continue to cook for about 5- 7 minutes.
Add some boiled eggs, stir check the seasonings adjust if necessary and turn off the heat to simmer.
Ayamase-ofada rice stew is ready.
Serve with Ofada rice or any rice of your choice.
