|Boiled garden egg in a food processor, can also be pounded with mortar and pestle|
First I washed and boiled the garden eggs till soft, boiled fish too with salt and onions while garden eggs are boiling in a different pot. The soft garden eggs are then blended in a food processor (a mortar can pound too), and then added to the fry pan already cooking hot with onions, pepper, seasoning and crayfish.
The egg plants fry for about 3 minutes or until you are satisfied with the fried taste. When I tasted and it's ok by me, I added the tomato paste already mixed with some water and let it cook for about 3 minutes again or till you are satisfied with the taste. The deboned boiled fish is added at this time, stock too (You can add all the stock or just enough not to have watery stew). Let the pot boil, check for taste, salt and seasoning. Satisfied with the stew, I served with boiled rice. Can be served with boiled yam or plantain too.
