Nigerian Okra Soup With Tomato Stewed Chicken, Fish

 a serving of okra soup with stewed chicken and fish
Dear Diary,
This soup is very easy to cook and fast too. First,
 I made sure that  was done with cooking the chicken  and making  eba, before facing the okra soup.
It was super duper delicious! The aroma, sweet, the taste... heavenly.

Cooking Steps For This Okra Soup And Chicken:

  1. The washed, salted chicken is put in a fry pan with some chopped onion. The heat is turned on.
  2. It boils, begins to look dry, so I add some vegetable oil by the sides of the pan, cover for four minutes, checked and turned the chicken over, added a little stew before covering to simmer.
  3. Chicken boils for another four minutes before the pan is put in the microwave oven for five minutes. Chicken is turned over and left for another five minutes before bringing out of the oven and putting on paper to drain oil
  4. Back to the soup: 
  5. Washed and bone picked fish, seasoning, salt, crayfish and pepper are put in a pot with some water, slowly brought to a boil.
  6. I checked for salt before adding the stewed stock from the fry pan to the pot. checked again for salt and seasoning, Cover and bring again to a boil
  7. Finally I add the chopped okra with some chopped onion, covered for four minutes and turned off the heat.
  8. Served with soft garri..

 The eba was too big, couldn't clear the chicken, I prefer  many smaller pieces of chicken, meat, to a BIG part. Large pieces of meat kind of turn me off
Again, all I can say about this meal is super Duper Delicious!
Enjoy your lunch!

Yummy! I had this with fufu on Sunday! But mine was with stewed beef.

What's your take on adding utazi (I think, or uziza - I always get them mixed up. It's the leaf with the aroma). I like to add this to okro too cos of the taste and aroma. What other soups can one add it to?

Eya Ayambem said...

I add uziza (hot leaf) sometimes too. It gives the soup a rich hot and spicy taste.
I can add uziza to draw soups, white soups and porridges. It just spices them up in a way.

Adele said...

Yes, Uziza! Thanks. The aroma and spicy taste does it for me cos I love spicy food.
