Potato, Prawn And Vegetable Stir Fry By Lizzy Obaze

 A serving of potato, prawn and vegetable stir fry
Hello Sis,

Here is the recipe as promised. Like I mentioned earlier there is no step by step guide/pictures. The ingredients and cooking direction is detailed enough to help anyone reproduce this.

Ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, king prawns, new potatoes, onion, garlic, ginger, red and green peppers, scotch bonnet pepper, carrots, cabbage, peas and sweetcorn.
Seasoning: salt, curry powder, dry thyme and flavour enhancer.

Directions:

* I washed and parboiled the
new potatoes with some salt then leave in cold water to cool down. After cooling down I peel the skin of the potatoes and set aside.
* in the hot extra virgin olive oil I fry chopped onion, chopped garlic and scotch bonnet pepper and grated ginger. I then add the prawns.
* after 2 mins I add the cabbage and carrots as they are the toughest of the veggies. 3mins later I add the peas, sweetcorn, red and green pepper.
* I then season with curry powder, dry thyme and flavour enhancer.
* I then add the new potatoes so it softens (it was only parboiled) alongside all the veggies. Turn off heat after 3mins and serve.

PS: this meal can be 'potato, prawn and vegetable casserole' if finely chopped tin tomatoes is added to a casserole/oven dish with the lid on it with all the above uncooked ingredients and left to slow cook in the oven for about 30-40mins on medium heat.

    1. Add the chicken stock to your stew to give it a better taste and use chicken stock cubes.

      To add mushroom to efo wash it Properly and add it to the stew/sauce and let it cook for about 5-10mins before adding the efo to the stew.

      You can add mushroom to fried rice, steam it and eat with rice or boil with white rice, add it to and soup (egusi, okro, ogbono, vegetable....), yam porttage, all stir frys.
      Hope this helps and happy married life.
