TOMATO GINGER STEW NIGERIAN


This is a No-fry tomatoes ginger stew but even if you like to fry your tomato stews, you can still add the ginger before blending and make sure there is enough red bell peppers, not just tomatoes alone. When you cook tomatoes stew with tatashey, the taste is better than cooking with just tomatoes and onion
Adding ginger to tomatoes stew makes a whole lot of difference. Right from boiling, the aroma is different and very inviting. Normally, I boil my blended tomatoes a bit, strain out excess water before I continue cooking, or boil before blending tomatoes but with this, because of the ginger added, I couldn't strain anything for fear of losing the ginger aroma in the stew. The blended tomatoes continued to boil till dry before I added vegetable oil and continued cooking without frying. Do not add too much ginger, else it overpowers the tomatoes. Less is more. For this gingered tomatoes stew, even though the tatashey looks more, the tomatoes weighed more.

If I create a recipe and it turns out not good enough by my taste buds, I try my best to warn so that you tread with caution. I started adding ginger to my tomatoes some months back and because the family enjoys the gingered tomatoes stew more, we just made it a norm that ginger is added to our tomatoes stews. The first time was when we cooked tomatoes stew with local chicken for visiting day and realized that was the stew everyone wanted. Tomatoes ginger stew tastes great. When I do fry my tomatoes stew, I fry the grated ginger together with onion sometimes.
