There are different types of stew recipes eaten in Nigeria, I am going to talk about the two most popular ones. You should know that stews in Nigeria are served alongside some other Nigerian foods like rice, yams, corn, beans, and many others.

I developed a kind of special resemblance to the Banga (soup) stew, a special kind of popular Nigerian stew made by the Igbo people. There are three main tribes in Nigeria and, like a hundred other minor tribes, most of these people have different recipes for the stew.

Over the years, as I tried to explore Nigerian food further, I discovered so many recipes that I never thought existed. I discovered a kind of stew in Yoruba land that is only made with palm oil and dried peppers, this stew is served with a combination of bread and beans, a perfect combination for breakfast in Yoruba land.

I liked it while living in Lagos state.

There are many other types of Nigerian stews; Igbo people make a very delicious stew with palm fruit and other ingredients, I enjoyed an overdose of this delicious recipe during the Christmas celebration, kind of my favorite stew in 2013.

Banga soup (Offe Akwu), [as the people of Igbo call it] It could be made with simple ingredients that can be harvested from the farm, which is why it is very popular in rural areas. The stew is made with palm fruits, aromatic leaves, crayfish and other ingredients.

So I’m going to focus more on the Nigerian tomato stew, which was my favorite stew of 2012. Tomato stew is quite easy to prepare because almost all of the ingredients used to make this delicious recipe can be found in all parts of the world. . So if you don’t live in Nigeria, you can still make white rice and tomato stew for dinner.

Boil the chicken wings with all the necessary ingredients, I like to use an onion bulb, a cube of maggi, salt and a teaspoon of curry / thyme, it is advisable to boil the chicken with these ingredients if you want to end up with a very tasty stew. Boil the chicken wings for ten to fifteen minutes.

Crush the tomatoes and the pepper together with a mixer, also cut the onions into slices and reserve in a bowl.

Step 2

Fry the tomato / pepper in a separate pot or pan. Bring the pot to a simmer, heat for a minute before adding the oil, heat for another minute and add the sliced ​​onions, stir for a minute before adding the ground tomatoes / peppers. Stir and fry for the next ten to fifteen minutes until the tomato loses its bitter taste due to frying.

It is advisable to stir from time to time while frying to avoid burning, the tomato turns black when left to burn and black is not exactly my favorite color for stews. You need to be a little cautious when preparing Nigerian food, Nigerian stew is no exception.
