Vegetables stew/ Efo riro

Efo riro recipe


Let me tell you a quick story before I share the recipe. Mum and I had gone out to get a few things we needed for the house, but as usual, we ended up buying more things like vegetables and fishes. We then we had to buy smoked fish and pepper to cook it.

As we were driving to the house I told my mum I would love to cook the vegetables which she agreed, so the next morning I gathered my ingredients

Efo riro, vegetables stew

Ingredients

  • Pepper
  • Vegetables
  • fish( smoked fish and crayfish)
  • cowhide(ponmo) and locust beans ( iru)

  2. Arrange them neatly then slice into few pieces
  3. Rinse in salty water i.e add salt to the water.
    • then rinse the vegetables twice afterwards with clean water
    • Don’t drain the water but instead pick the leaves out of the water
  4. In a bowl, divide your smoked fish into two equal halves
    • Remove the bone
    • Flake/ pieces the fish ( don’t make it too tiny so you can taste the fish when eating the vegetables)
  5. Slice your cowhide (ponmo) into pieces
    • The inside of the ponmo may have to be scrubbed because of the dirt so I employ my iron sponge for this.
    • Rinse the ponmo very well
  6. Blend your pepper( tomatoes can be added but the peppery effect Which I like may not be felt so I don’t use any but you can)
  7. Rinse your locust beans
  8. Place a pot on the stove and wait for it to dry
  9. using a kitchen spoon, measure four to five spoons of palm oil and add it
  10. Heat for 3 minute
