Steps to Cooking
Palm oil is the key to this African food — pour the palm oil inside the cooking pot and place on the gas cooker, make the heat moderate and let the palm oil heat up and cover for about 8 minutes, open all the windows to avoid being choked by the smoke and be careful to avoid the situation where oil catches fire. Turn off the gas cooker and leave the palm oil to cool down for about 4minutes.
Place it back on the gas cooker and let the palm oil heat up for a minute, then pour the rinsed Locust Beans, stir for 2 minutes and add the Pepper into the Palm Oil. Stir together continuously untill the Palm Oil starts riding on the Pepper. Add the ground crayfish, Seasoning powder and the remaining sliced Onion. Add Salt (to taste), stir again and cover for two minutes. Pour the cooked assorted meats and stir together. Touché! Your Ofada Stew is ready, don’t forget to lower the heat to keep the stew warm until you are ready to serve it. Ofada stew is an African food that is best served warm. Enjoy
