We love Nigerian food around here. We have had the real stuff and sad to say, I failed at this recipe.. AGAIN. This is the second time I have attempted to make this stew and while it was good- it wasn’t the real thing. I am not giving this recipe because I know it was missing some things. I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I plan to have my friends over really soon so they can watch me make this and tell me. Once I get it right, I will post those pictures and the real recipe 🙂 I am hoping I can get the tomato rice and coconut rice recipe too 🙂 Ya’ll get ready for some good food!
I love the curry that you can taste in this stew.
Another mistake that I know I made because my friends told me this the first time I made it – I am supposed to use fresh tomato. Well, I didn’t have it because this was not on my original menu list. I was supposed to have curry chicken and coconut rice this night but had a craving for this instead. So, I used a can of crushed tomatoes. It does make a difference in this recipe if you use canned verses fresh. The tomato is supposed to cook and become a like a thick paste (I think) lol.
