Hiya people,

In previous posts, I’ve shown you how to make Jollof Rice and Fried Rice. However, for those of us who like our standard white rice, this is a recipe which I believe is ideal for a nice rice and stew dinner. Quite easy to make. The spicier, the better.

***This recipe serves four people

To prepare Fried Dried Fish Sauce, you'll need the following.

1 pack of dried fish (from any African food shop

4 eggs

1 red bell pepper

1 medium sized onion

1 teaspoon of locust beans

1 scotch bonnet

1/2 teaspoon of salt (this can be more or less depending on your taste)

2 knorr cubes (double-pack)

1 teaspoon of curry powder

1 teaspoon of thyme

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

2 tablespoons of palm oil



Boil eggs for 15 minutes and place in cold water to cool


Blend 1 scotch bonnet, 1 red bell pepper and 1 medium sized onion.

In a medium sized pot, add 2 tablespoons of palm oil and heat. When hot, add the blended sauce to the hot oil and the dry fish and leave to cook for 5 minutes.

Add the spices, the boiled eggs and the locust beans. Leave to cook for a further five minutes.

Serve with white rice or agege bread (for my naija people)
