AYAMASE (OFADA STEW) - BAE SNATCHING RECIPE!

The first time I tasted Ayamase was when I travelled to "the abroad" and it was served at a party...I was like "whaaaaaaaaat is THIS"? My eyes open wide the only way it opens when it is excited. My tastebuds were very happy-it was like a stew I've tasted only in my dreams-I begged the caterer for the recipe that day....I would have washed her plates to learn how to make it. This stew prepared properly fit carry pesin 'osband go-I warned you about it HERE. This recipe is close to my heart so I hope you enjoy it.

Ayamase

AYAMASE INGREDIENTS 
1/4 cup Palm Oil
1 Tbs Iru (Locust Beans)
1 kg Assorted Meat (Shaki, Kpomo, Liver) - already cooked
600g Cooked Chicken
1 Cup Chicken Broth 
1 tsp Salt
1 Seasoning Cube
1 tbs Crayfish
1 medium Onions
Green Tomatoes
Green Bell Pepper
Green Habanero Pepper


PREPARATION
  • Blend green tomatoes, peppers and onion, place in a pot and boil for 15 minutes.
  • Heat up a pot and add palm oil. Allow to bleach for 10 minutes; this means leaving it to heat up and smoke till it is almost similar to vegetable oil. After 10 minutes allow to cool a bit.
  • Add chopped onions, saute, then add the boiled tomato/pepper 
  • Add salt, iru (locust beans), assorted meat and crayfish. Cover and allow to cook till oil floats to the top.
  • Add chicken stock, taste and then add seasoning cube if necessary. Also add cooked chicken now. 
  • Allow to cook for 5 more minutes and simmer.
