@ Jazzy
Sorry, I meant to Answer you earlier,

I'm glad your hubby is enjoying the food. If he's anything like Brash (MrCrackles) then his tummy is definitely the way to his heart , with a good sense of humour of course  grin



I have no idea what they sell in Malaysia. Never been there.

Ogbono is made from the seed of Wild Mango, it makes soup drawy, kind of like okro , but with a different taste.
It's also called bush mango, African bush mango, wild mango, oba
If you can't find any in your local store s you can get it online at Asiamex.com
I think they sell in Malaysia

Ikang ubong are pumpkin leaves ( Ugwu in igbo), I'm sure you can find a friend or neighbour with squash or pumpkin plants in their garden that you can steal a few laves from abi?

Water leaf is also called Ceylon Spinach? in your part of the world maybe Chan Cai, Remayong or Gendola. You may well be able to get it at the local veggie market as it's a common tropical plant.

this is what the plant looks like.

Amaka, I thank You o! You are a God-send. But seriously, have you considered publishing a cookbook of nigerian recipe's? You seem to have a passion for cooking. You know virtually everything about nigerian menus - even nuances like the number of minutes to cook old beans vs new beans! I bow to you o,

Should you decide to publish, I'll buy the very first copy - whatever the price. grin

nd can cabbages be boilled/soaked in hot water wit salt?
Re: Nigerian Recipes by AmakaOne(f): 2:15pm On Nov 24, 2008
@madea

Ingredients
2 tbsp olive oil or sun-dried tomato oil from the jar
6 rashers of smoked streaky bacon, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1kg/2¼lb lean minced beef
2 large glasses of red wine
2x400g cans chopped tomatoes
1x290g jar antipasti marinated mushrooms, drained
2 fresh or dried bay leaves
1 tsp dried oregano or a small handful of fresh leaves, chopped
1 tsp dried thyme or a small handful of fresh leaves, chopped
drizzle balsamic vinegar
12-14 sun-dried tomato halves, in oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
a good handful of fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces
800g-1kg/1¾-2¼lb dried spaghetti
lots of freshly grated parmesan cheese, to serve

Method
1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan and fry the bacon until golden over a medium heat.

Add the onions and garlic, frying until softened.

Increase the heat and add the minced beef.

Fry it until it has browned, breaking down any chunks of meat with a wooden spoon.

Pour in the wine and boil until it has reduced in volume by about a third.

Reduce the temperature and stir in the tomatoes, drained mushrooms, bay leaves, oregano, thyme and balsamic vinegar.

2. Either blitz the sun-dried tomatoes in a small blender with a little of the oil to loosen, or just finely chop before adding to the pan.

Season well with salt and pepper.

Cover with a lid and simmer the Bolognese sauce over a gentle heat for 1-1½ hours until it's rich and thickened, stirring occasionally.

At the end of the cooking time, stir in the basil and add any extra seasoning if necessary.

3. Remove from the heat to 'settle' while you cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water (for the time stated on the packet).

Drain and divide between warmed plates. Scatter a little parmesan over the spaghetti before adding a good ladleful of the Bolognese sauce, finishing with a scattering of more cheese and a twist of black pepper.

Tip:
You can make a veggie version of this recipe by substituting soya mince or Quorn for the meat, adding it to the sauce halfway through cooking. Or simply add lots of diced vegetables to the onions, such as courgettes, carrots, peppers and aubergines.

Enjoy!

my man is a typical nigerian man, do you think it is too late to learn how to specialise in nigerian dishes and i would really love to impress him when i get back to the country later in the year.

I went to school in Nigeria from age 6 to 7 (more of an accident than anything else) in Port Harcourt and the food sellers outside the school gate sold this delicious savoury pancake type snack. It was very flat, round, cream coloured, or sometimes it was the colour of moi-moi. It was hot (spicy) and very tasty. I can't explain the actual texture because nothing comparable comes to mind.

Please tell me you have a recipe for this. Some people appear to know what I am talking about when I mention it, however they always tell me that it is the type of food that you will only find outside school gates in Nigeria, for kids and not adults.

Peace.

Furthermore, may I commend you on this brilliant thread, I love most of these dishes but can only cook the basic egusi, okro and vegetable soups. I can't cook my favourite foods : Isiegwu and Ubwa with smoked crayfish and garden eggs and enough pepper to remove the roof of my mouth. Spend so much money going to Nija restaurants/ Nija Take-aways. So I am gonna scan the previous posts to see what I have missed. Again, thank you.

Peace.
