HeY 9jafoodie, I noticed that you boiled the ata before you fried it. Is there a reason why this was done? I usually blend and fry. Is this wrong?

9jaFOODie said...

@'s actually very easy to make!

@NG: hahaha.. you are in d land of shaki n brokoto... just vex n go all out. u don't even wanna know ao it's a delicacy in canadaland... soo overpriced :(

@ are making me hunggryyyyyy..stop it!

@ChizyK: for real? you need to try it, I think the more variety of meat + fish you have in the stew, the tastier it is :D

@ Paige: I will surely check out your blog page. Thanks so much for stopping by!

@Natural Nigeria: due to the nature of the products we have here, there is usually excess water in the ata.I boil it to remove the excess water. if the ata is already at a consistency you like, there is nothing wrong with cooking it outright.

I am really thankful for all your comments!

9ja foodie, your obe ata doesn't have habanero pepper? That's a first.

Never made stew without it. I'll try this recipe and give my feedback. I have a feeling a trial will make me change my usual recipe forever.

9jaFOODie said...

Nope....when i make fried ata.. I use habanero...for the heat.
when I make this buka inspired stew, I stay away from habanero, because I like to taste the mixed flavor that stems from the orishirishi meat and that insane smell/taste of palm+groundnut oil. *happy dance*. habanero can be overpowering (depending on what you are going for sha )
