Ingredients

  • 2 cups of cigars | 1.1 g (500 g) long-grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons red palm oil
  • 1 large piece of cod
  • 1 medium smoked mackerel / Titus
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 tablespoons ground crab
  • 2 large cubes
  • 1 small ogiri okpei / iru / dawa-dawa
  • Pepper and salt (to taste)
  • Vegetables: choice of aromatic leaves (nchanwu), curry leaves or parsley

Cooking instructions

  1. Put the pieces of dried fish and dried fish in a large bowl, add chopped onion and diced broth. Add some water to cover the ingredients and cook until the fish is very soft.
  2. Add pepper, ground crab and palm oil.
  3. Fill the water to the same level as the contents of the pan if necessary. Cover and heat it over medium heat for about 7 minutes. This is a time when palm oil has to be fully integrated with other ingredients.
  4. Add the drained cooked rice, mix well, and make sure the liquid is at the same level as the rice. If less, fill it with more water.
  5. Put smoked fish and vegetables on the rice.
  6. Cover the pan and cook over low to medium heat. This way, the rice is not burned until the water is dry.
  7. If the rice is cooked well, the rice cooker must be ready for the water to dry—a taste for confirmation.
  8. Otherwise, you will need to add more water and reduce the heat to avoid burns. Keep cooking until done.
  9. After confirming that the rice is ready, turn off the heat. Add the aromatic leaves or parsley to the rice, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes. Then stir, and it’s ready to serve!
