 Delicious egusi stew. 
When you taste this stew, you won't bother too much about the scarcity and cost of fresh tomatoes at a time when it's supposed to be surplus in the market.

A small serving of egusi stew


Blending the onion, canned tomato and pepper


Blended ingredients

Cooking Proceedure :
First I blended the onion with pepper and tomato. Added water and mixed with egusi for boiling. Boiled with some salt till egusi is cooked. I  then fried a little piece of the onion I left,  added the cooked egusi/tomatoes and friedadding seasoning and salt.  When stew is well fried, I add the meat and beef stock, check for salt and taste, allow to simmer until my whole compound smells delicious. Food is served.
Very yummy with boiled rice. Will also taste great with boiled yam, plantain and. ....... For swallow,  I'm going to add ugu, turn the left over to soup, eat first and see how it goes before posting.
Please let us know how yours turns out.
Tip: You can add crayfish if you want.
Enjoy!

  11. ME: What? Egusi stew is something that a lot of people especially students cook, not a new recipe. I'm shocked. My family enjoyed the one I cooked. What meat did you use? You added stock and seasoning? Boiled egusi before frying and all?

  12. MAILER: yes i did all dat, i used cow skin. maybe i didnt add enough water to the egusi and blended ingredients
    while boiling. i think dats where i made a mistake, thanks. i ll keep
    trying till i'm perfect.

    ME:Sorry about that. Egusi stew is very tasty. You can read comments on wives connection Facebook page. Some have made and it's perfect. Aside the cow skin, did you add any other meat?

    MAILER :no just the cow skin. someone else ate it and said its ok. i ll keep
    trying though.thanks alot.

    ME :Ok, you know cow skin alone doesn't add taste to food. Even with the cow tail I used,you know I still added beef stock. Next time, instead of cow skin, buy meat or fish then if there's still some change, you can then add kpomo so that your food gets that stock taste ok?
    Good night.

  13. For those who put their cylinders in the balcony please how do you protect it from rain and sunshine? Do you make a cover for it and if so, what kind of covering? THANKS.

    1. Mine is outside. I don't think rain and sun affects it.
      I have seen a protected one somewhere. In a small hut that looks like a dog kennel but a bit spacious and padlocked. The carpenters know what to construct.
