Ofada Rice and stew is a Nigerian meal native to the Yorubas but in recent times, everyone, especially those in Lagos and environs, has been bitten by the Ofada Rice bug.

How to cook Ofada Stew

Please note that Ofada Stew is the hottest of them all when it comes to Nigerian hot and spicy food. It tastes like Vindaloo (Indian Curry) and is mostly for those who have natural coolers in their mouth to douse the fire that this stew brings to the palate.

Ofada Rice is not very interesting. It is not as posh as the long grain parboiled rice. The “best” part? It has this strong pungent smell when it is being cooked yet everyone wants to eat it! I guess it is because Nigerians have a penchant for all things traditional and homegrown. Or maybe it’s the stew because I must say the Ofada Stew adds a delicious twist to Ofada Rice.

Ingredients for Ofada Stew

  • 40 pcs unripe habanero peppers (atarodo, ose oyibo, atarugu)
  • 2 green tatashe peppers or green bell peppers
  • 1 locust bean seasoning (Iru, ogiri okpei or dawadawa)
  • 20cl red palm oil (at least)
  • 1 big onion
  • 1 handful crayfish
  • 850g assorted meat and fish. I used:
    • Beef
    • Shaki (cow tripe)
    • Dry fish
    • Stockfish

Before you cook Ofada Stew

  1. Wash and blend the peppers and the onion. Remember to remove the seeds from the green tatashe or the green bell peppers.
  2. Grind the crayfish and the locust bean seasoning with a dry mill.

Cooking Directions

  1. Cook all the meat and fish with the stock cube till well done.
  2. Pour the pepper blend into a separate pot and cook on high heat till all the water dries up.
  3. Pour the red palm oil into a clean dry pot and bleach till it turns clear. It should look like vegetable oil when done. It took me 12 minutes on low to medium heat to bleach the one in the video below. Your own time may vary depending on the type of heater you have and the quantity of oil.
  4. Leave the oil to cool down a bit then add the boiled pepper puree. Fry till all the water has dried from the pepper.
  5. Add the crayfish and locust bean seasoning, the orisirisi meat and fish and stir well.
  6. Add salt to taste, leave to simmer and it is ready to be served.

Serve with boiled Ofada Rice. To get the full effects, line the plate with uma leaves. You can also use banana leaves.

Tips for bleaching red palm oil

  1. Bleach the palm oil with a clean dry stainless steel pot. Aluminium pots work well too. Never use non-stick pots or enamel pots when bleaching red palm oil.
  2. If possible, use a free-flowing pure red palm oil. The congealed almost yellow ones contain some water.
  3. Use low heat when bleaching the oil. This ensures that the oil is not very dark when done.
  4. Do so in a well-ventilated area. Turn on your kitchen extractor to remove the smoke as much as possible. Turn off your smoke alarm if any, you don’t want everyone to know that you are cooking Ofada Stew. 😉
  5. Do not leave the pot unattended because the oil will catch fire if overheated. Check it constantly and turn off the heat once the bleaching is complete.
  6. Do allow the oil to cool down a bit before adding the ingredients. This will prevent hot splashes of oil and will keep your food from burning due to the high temperatures.

      Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
      I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that
      they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail
      upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
      people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
      Thanks
