Assorted Rice Bowl


  • 1 large bell pepper
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 cup thai Basil (Nigerian Scented leave or Efirin)
  • 1 cube maggi (bullion cube)
  • 2 habanero pepper
  • ½ tspn salt
  • A dash of curry
  • ¼ cup palm oil (or ur choice of oil)
  • Meat* (pre-cooked)
  • In a blender, combine peppers, tomatoes and basil. Blend. do not add extra water to the mix
  • Set a pot on medium heat, once the pot is hot enough, add in the oil
  • Pour in the blended paste, cover for 5 mins.
  • Add in the pre-cooked meat, salt, maggi and curry
  • Cover & cook on medium heat for another 10mins.
  • Serve on white rice

*(for the meat, use whatever part you fancy; assorted meat generally describes the odd parts of  a cow i.e shaki (tripe), edo (Kidney), ponmo (skin), roundabout e.t.c) 
for this recipe I used shrimp, shaki (tripe) and beef kidney.

*be sure to buy a really strong smelling basil,  it gives gives the sauce a totally different taste and aroma.

Hello mentor, Here's an update..
I finally went grocery shopping yesterday, but then I completely forgot what leaves to buy and ended up buying parsley instead of basil *covers face in shame*.... just kidding... I'll get some basil today and I'll let you know how it goes...

Did I hear somebody say sew???? The only thing I love more than food is sewing! Off to stalk Amina..
