Omoda Rice ( Turkey Stew)




Omoda Rice
Yes yes… pun intended (Ofada rice), my mum used to make this to die for turkey stew, it's so simple and so yum.
Here is my interpretation of  the Turkey Stew on Ofada rice

Ingredient
6 turkey wings (cut)
4 knorr cubes (Bullion cubes)
2 Tspns salt
¼ cub palm oil, ¼ cup peanut oil
4 large tomatoes, 2 habanera peppers, ½ medium size onion and a some fresh ginger root  (blended)


Direction
  • Pour the blended tomato base into a large pot; boil until it is reduced to half the size
  • Place another large pot on medium heat, set the turkey in, add 1tspn of salt and 2cubes of Knor . Cover and cook for 25mins
  • Place a medium pot on low heat; add in the oil the oil. Blanch the oil for about 4mins (you might need to switch on the fan.lol)
  • Carefully add in the tomato base to the oil , cover the pot immediately. Turn the heat to medium, cook for 3-5mins. Add in the left over salt and Knorr. Stir. Taste and adjust for seasoning if need be.
  • Add in your boiled turkey, reduce the heat to a little below medium, cover the pot and cook for 20-25 mins  (enough time to let the stew sip into the turkey bones).
  • Remove the stew from heat; serve with Ofada rice, basmati or regular parboiled rice.
EnJoy.
****PS: I was so excited to eat the rice; I didn’t take a proper picture. My bad*****

LOL @Omoda rice

According to Naeto C....The only thing I can say to this recipe is 'Yes Boss' LOL

The combination of palm oil, veg oil, ofada rice and peppers is enough to make me sing *salivating badly*

The only thing I would add is some squishy cubed dodo...'Yes oh!'

@Olori; Ofada is a local variety or rice, you cook it the same way you cook Parboiled rice.

@Madame Sting; it's a local variety of rice, it's popular among the Yoruba people of Nigeria.

@NIL...lol..yes Boss.. Hhhahahaha Cheiii Dodo will definitely be a great addition.

Blessings my Chef friend...
This weeks recipe reminds me of when I lived in Trinidad. We make all kinds of stews. There was a time when turkey winds were at a reasonable price that encouraged my grandfather to feast daily on the things that he almost gave up on buying chicken all together. My sister and I were dying as we soon became tired of the bloody things. We have stew turkey wings which was generally dark brown in color because we use brown sugar to stew. Curry turkey wings, boiled turkey wings, fried turkey wings, baked turkey wings etc, you get the idea, it got so that just the sight of turkey wings made us want to puke. He was defiant when he realized that they were not being consumed, said we were ungrateful. Were we, I don't think so, I just think we kind of overdosed on the stuff.

Great dish....keep them comimg.

lol....waoooooo! I feel like i just traumatized you with this dish, lol... your grandpa did overdose with the wings. Reminds me of a story my dad told me, when he was in Med school in New Castle, all he could afford was fish, these days he doesn't really like fish that isn't fresh.
