For the Pepper Stew

Ingredients:

  • 10 whole tomatoes
  • 2 large red bell peppers/tatashe

  • 100ml Palm oil

  • 2 tablespoonful ground crayfish(optional)
  • 4 hard boiled eggs(optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 stock cube or any seasoning of choice

Direction for cooking Buka Stew/ Obe ata dindin :

Before you start with the Obe ata stew:

Cook or boil the meat you would be using  and Set aside for later use

If you want to add eggs, then also boil them beforehand, peel of the shell and set aside.

Now to prepare this Buka stew

Add  the pepper, tomatoes and one onion in a blender and blend(you can also make use of canned stewed tomatoes if you don’t have fresh tomatoes)…make sure to add little water as you blend, but if you end up with a watery mixture, simply add it to a pot and boil to remove excess liquid.

Next, place  a pot on medium heat , pour in the Palm oil , heat it up until is very hot(but not smoking), then add the meat and fry until dry. Then take them out and set aside.

Now add an onion(shredded) into the hot oil, fry a bit and then add the blended tomato & pepper mix.  Cook until the mixture loses its sour taste, or until you begin to see the oil rise to the top.

Next , add the garlic powder, bouillon cubes (maggi /knorr cubes) , ground crayfish and salt to taste.You can also add more seasoning if you like to.   Mix thoroughly, cover and leave to cook for 2 minutes.

Add the fried meat, mix well, cover the pot, simmer for 5 minutes and put off the heat.

Add the boiled eggs and your Buka Stew/Obe Ata dindin is ready ..ENJOY.

Recipe for Plantain Scotch Eggs

Ingredients

1 finger of Ripe plantain

3 Eggs

2 teaspoons of Suya powder

1/2 teaspoon of black pepper

1/2 seasoning cube

1/ teaspoon of grated ginger

1/2 cup of Bread crumbs

2 teaspoons of Couscous (optional)

Oil for frying

Method

Boil 2 of your eggs for about 5-7 minutes.

Place in cold water for about 2 minutes and peel the egg and set aside.

Boil your plantain till soft and mash while hot.

Add your seasoning cube, ginger, black pepper and  1 teaspoon of suya powder to the plantain and combine thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, whisk the last egg and set aside.

Using a flat plate, mix the couscous with the breadcrumbs and 1 teaspoon of suya powder and set aside. (I mixed cous cous because I liked the extra crunch. You can use garri as well)

Take your egg and scoop a little of the plantain mash and mould the eggs lightly. Rub some vegetable oil on your hands so the plantain doesn’t stick to your hands as much.

When you have moulded lightly, dip the plantain egg ball in the whisked egg and then roll in the breadcrumbs and set aside.

Heat up your vegetable oil for deep frying and when it’s hot, place your plantain scotch eggs and fry till golden brown.

I find its best to consume this when its not straight from the pot. Allow it rest a bit but whilst staying warm serve with hot sauce.
