HOW TO COOK NIGERIAN FRIED RICE WITH GIZZARD

Gizzard replaced liver in 2016. I remember when I used to cook cow liver, dice and add to fried rice for that brown colour and extra protein. It's now easier to find gizzard than liver, so I tried and it delivered. Adding gizzard by my taste palate is way better. This is the only way I can enjoy gizzard because I don't like them. When
it's diced in fried rice, I love. I tried to post this gizzard rice recipe in January, some cooking pics won't just upload. So yesterday, I cooked with the same recipe and it still tasted really good. 

 A small serving of rice. You can see the gizzard staring at me

Making peppered gizzard


 I used just 12 pieces of  well cooked gizzard out of this pepper soup to add to the rice


 Colourful ingredients starting from a small plate of green peas, much much onions. If I tell you how much onions we use in my house, you may not believe. Sometimes, a basket lasts for  just two weeks, yes. The benefits of eating onions are too numerous not to overload with it. The longest a basket of onions stays in this house is one month. For fried rice and even tomato stew, onion takes the upper hand
Gizzard fried rice ingredients:

  1. 3 cups basmati rice
  2. 1 table spoon curry
  3. seasoning cubes plus monosodium glutamate (white maggi)
  4. Salt
  5. Beef stock
  6. 1 small plate green peas
  7. 3 medium sized onion
  8. I large red bell pepper (tatashey)
  9. One medium sized green pepper
  10. 4 large carrots
  11. 12 pieces cooked gizzard



 Adding white maggi and other ingredients to beef stock, yes, white maggi. ( Remove ya eye from the oil and water stains on the cooker unless you want to tell me that when you cook your rice, water doesn't splash and dry up on the hot cooker. I didn't want to add this pic at first but the cropped one refused to send, what am I supposed to do? leave it out? na lie o. I'll wipe when the cooker is cold enough for my tender, baby hand). If after cooking your rice meals, it still tastes like something is missing, try adding white maggi. Monosodium glutamate is the medicine for rice dishes. It has a way of giving rice that rich taste  that makes you eat a little too much. I don't add it to soups or stews, just fried rice, coconut rice, jollof  and palm oil rice. When you try it, if I'm lying, leave a comment. Most Nigerians don't like white maggi but they enjoy other seasoning cubes with no knowledge that white maggi is in all of them written as monosodium glutamate when you read the seasoning cube ingredients. Even sugar is in seasoning cubes sef. Read the content of any seasoning cube you love and tell me if ...
Very neat magical  cooker :)  freshly cropped


 Sautee ingredients in oil with more seasoning cubes else you have tasteless fried rice. You can add curry to these if you like, I didn't.


 Onion is transluscent, tht means the veggies are ready. I check for salt before adding to cooked rice, that's my lazy man way. You can fry the cooked rice at this point in batches with the veggies and gizzard.
 Get the plates ready.

Yum yum

  6. The bit about white Maggi I find very interesting.
    I must ask my mum to send me some as I am now curious.
    I don't think I have ever eaten food cooked with that ( that I was aware of that is) and I tended to associate the white Maggi to the horrifying tales about it.
    I'll try it then.
