This is for the mailer that asked if you can add tomato to egusi stew. I like the taste of tomato in egusi soup or stew. I remember Lizzy posted Efo elegusi on the blog, she added tomatoes to her egusi soup.  Chubby Ella's multi purpose egusi soup also has tomatoes in it
There are many methods of cooking this tomato in egusi stew and here is how I make mine.
UPDATED TOMATOES EGUSI SOUP RECIPE:
If you have ever eaten boiled rice, yam or plantain with egusi stew, then you'll feel me here. I add a little tomato paste to my egusi stew but forgot to add here, lolz. Adding some tomato makes it really go well with rice and gives the melon stew very bright colour. Even when tomatoes is added, it can still be served with pounded yam made in a food processor or maually or even serevd with any other swallow like eba, semo, amala, elubo, starch etc.
This pics were taken when I was still pregnant and sorry I didn't have the patience to really take all the step by step pics, I kind of rushe…
