Nigerian Stewed Beans (Ewa Riro)

0 comments

I used to think I know how to cook stewed beans till I met my hubby, I am more inclined to cooking my sauce separately (Agoyin/buka style) as that is the way I like it.  But ever since I learnt how to cook his style of stewed beans, I have not looked back and with the help of a pressure cooking pot, it means I can cook my beans in about 45 minutes.

Banga Soup (Niger-Delta way)

The first time I ever tasted Banga soup was with my dad in Lagos. We were at this restaurant and he ordered Banga soup. I started interrogating him immediately, what is Banga soup? What is it made of etc? My dad just told me, ‘IYA’, calm down, you will see it when they serve us! When they served him his soup, it was in a clay pot.  You need to see the look on my face that day.  What!!!

Ayamase (Designer stew)

12 comments

Ayamase also called designer stew is the ‘fraternal twin’ of the ofada stew I recently made. The same ingredients are used except for tomatoes and instead of using the red bell pepper; you use the green bell pepper. You can use variety of green peppers and chillies you want. Ayamase requires a lot of patience when cooking and in my opinion it tastes a lot better when left to rest for some few minutes or hours before serving.
