SNAIL TOMATO STEW SO PEPPERY AND CRUNCHY

Image
When dinner is really spicy, so so hot yet the kids cannot stop eating, they ask for more water instead, just know that meal is irresistibly tasty. This hot crunchy tomato stew is different from the crunchy peppered snail recipe posted on the blog earlier. Peppered snail is cooked differently from snail stew. While snail stew contains generous amounts of peppers and tomatoes, peppered snail is cooked with just pepper, oil and seasoning. Cooking this crunchy snail stew is so easy. To get the snail crunchy, you use the same old method of washing with lime or alum, adding them to boiling water or freezing to harden. There is a post on how to prepare snails from scratch. Check it first if your snails are still in their shells.  While the peppered snail is served as a snack, this one is a main meal to be served with any accompaniment of choice.









UGU LEAF STEW COOKED WITH FRESH TOMATOES EGGS AND FISH

Image
Ugu leaf vegetable stew can be served with rice, boiled unripe plantain, boiled yam and any fufu of choice. This stew is easy to cook. We have a recipe on ugu leaf stew posted here on the blog already. The reason we are sharing this recipe too is because that did not include tomatoes and eggs. For a change, after cooking this ugu leaf stew, you may also try the vegetable stew on the old post and see which you enjoyed most. I can't really say because I love both and they are both very easy and quick to cook.
If you have oil, salt and seasoning cubes at home, with

These four methods of preparing fresh tomatoes before cooking Nigerian tomato stew, they work for me every time. They never fail to deliver: I can't even remember the last time I had to waste gas or electricity boiling tomatoes till dry before making my stew. There's no need for that anymore...
1. Boiling the washed tomatoes before blending.
2. Blending before boiling but, straining out the excess water once the foam is gone and paste separates from liquid.

FRESH FISH STEW CARIBBEAN STYLE

This fish stew is so delicious one cannot describe it. If you love like Caribbean stewed fish, then,you'll love this in a finger licking way. I left out a few ingredients that I think my local Nigerian palate will not enjoy. Boiled my fish the Nigerian way before adding unlike the Carribean method of just stir frying fish  along with vegetables. These pieces are large and may not cook through the way we like it here. My boiling before adding is just to ensure that my fish cook well well and I have fish stock to make sauce because definitely, my Nigerian palate will enjoy this with a hot plate of boiled rice. The stew is meant to be served as a meal sha but since I'm not really watching my weight at the moment, that alone without boiled rice won't fill me up. So I got a little bit creative and came up with this delicious pot of Nigerian fresh fish stew cooked with colourful assorted vegetables, with my Naija local flavour in there. This pot o…
