Green Sauce (Ayamase)

 Okay, so I have been told the sauce is called "AYAMASE", well I think this isn't a classic one, so I shall call it Modern Ayamase. Thanks to everyone that replied with the name!! me love yll long time


Ingredient;
 (A)
4 medium size tomatillo ( Green tomatoes)
2 bunches Thai basil ( or African Blue Basil (efinrin)) (bottom removed)
1 bunch fresh cilantro (bottom removed)
1 bunch spring onions (cleaned)(bottom removed)
3 medium size green jalapeno peppers (optional)
(B)
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and bullion cube to taste


Direction
  • In a blender, combine all  of part A ingredients, add 1 cup of water;blend to a puree consistency
  • Set a large size pot on high heat, pour in the pureed mixture and boil until its reduced to half the size
  • Set a medium size pot on medium heat, add in the oil.  wait 2 mins, pure in the reduced mixture. add in the Maggi and salt, cover and simmer for 10mins.
  • Your sauce is ready to serve, serve with boiled sweet potatoes, rice or as a sauce for bread.

Certainly never heard of this one. Looks good:) Is it ayamashe as people have been asking? Cos I know that one.

@Ms Myne; lol... I am sure you will be able to find all the green stuffs at any grocery store :D. i AM EXCITED for you to put your spin on it.

@Rebirth, Anon, NIL, Naijalines... Yeah, I think it might be that, well, my reservation with that is I believe Palm oil is used in ayamase? no? anyways... we shall call it Ayamase.

@Olori; it's African oo...the absence of "orishirishi" meat makes it look asian. lol.

@9ja-great; humm is right, you need to try it!
