Peel desired quantity of beans like moimoi or akara.

Boil until it's mashy as in very very soft.

Remove from fire and allow to cool.

Pour your cooked beans into your blender and blend or use clean broom to mash the beans like that used for ewedu.

Pour red oil on fire and bleach slightly.

Slice onions into the oil.

Pour your bean paste into the oil and heat.

Add your conduments i.e crayfish, knorr cubes, salt, ogiri, iru, dried fish(optional), dried pepper or blended fresh pepper.

Heat for some minutes.

Your gbegiri is ready.

Bisiriyu has said it all. But bisiriyu, won't you first soak the beans in cold water for some time and remove the cover of the beans before boiling?

Re: How To Prepare Gbegiri Soup by omogenikky(f): 9:21pm On Mar 30, 2006
use a pressure cooker for the beans,
Re: How To Prepare Gbegiri Soup by Bisiriyu: 1:32pm On Mar 31, 2006
IAH,

I included peeling the beans first that means use water and remove the cover. Peeling is the general way of saying it.

thanks renike sweety. gonna try it out on saturday.
Re: How To Prepare Gbegiri Soup by foskybaby(f): 12:16pm On Apr 03, 2006
As for ogbono I don’t know

But Recipee for Egusi ( Efo elegusi right) then here it is

The way I do mine

1. Fry red oil ( epo) is a pot no too much , u must have diced your onions and grinded pepper( don’t use tomato) use only atanla ( the small ones that are peppery) and tatase ( the big one that makes the soup red) don’t be scared it wont be hot but if you like you can adda bit of tomato if you don’t eat pepper
2. Gba the epo ( heat it well) then pour the diced onion then you grided pepper ( add onions in the grinded pepper)
3. Add Knorr cubes not magi knorr is the best then add ede lilo( crayfish) then add eja kika ( don’t know the name in English) let all this fry well well
4. Take your grinded egusi add a little water then mash it up with your hand so its pasty not to watery pour it in the pot , add your meat too let it all fry , turn down the gas light so it does not burn , I tell you at this stage the egusi is so swwet you will keep tasting it till you are full
5. NEXT…….You must have washed your efo with hot water and drained it well then pour it in the pot mix it all and then turn down the gas light and let it cook slowly to your desired tenderness

You can use the same step for efo riro but no egusi added

Recipee for ilaasepo

1. Dice the ila with your hand , don’t use blender I think it makes it watery and it kills all the seeds of the ila when you are eating it
2. Put water on fire and let it boil
3. Blend your pepper only the atanla , don’t add onion, add crayfish while blending it/. then pour into the boiling water not too much water then add little red oil,,, add all your serere, I add mushrooms , knorr fish , gizzard meat and spice it up well so its sweet, let in boil then add your blended ila .
4. Theres this thing that smells that I add tooo …, whats the name o …….hmmmm I have forgotten I will let you know when I remember
5. Add that thing too then let it cook under slow heat
6. The ila will draw well if


Recipee for suya

1. Chop your meat into tiny buts
2. wash and spice up your meat curry thyme pepper, onions any nice spicing
3. Put all the mixtures in a pot cover it for up to two hours or even overnight in the fridge, so that the ingredients enter it well
4. Then fry the meat
5. After frying it , you must have chopped red pepper , green , yellow
6. Take another pot heat a little oil…very little in it…. then pour the chopped stuff in it add little spicing then add the meat and stir fry it
7. After frying it , fry some onions and pour the onion on the meat to make it look like mala suya

There are various methods of preparing fried rice and all if properly prepared bring out a mouth watering delicacy. This is my own method. The quantity of ingredients to be used depends on the quantity of rice you're preparing. Your green pepper, green peas, carrots, liver should be cut into small pieces.

INGREDIENTS FOR FRIED RICE

Rice
Green pepper
Green peas
Diced carrots
Diced liver
Margarine or vegetable oil
Curry powder
Knorr cubes
Salt to taste
Meat or chicken stock
Green beans

METHOD

Wash your rice and boil in the meat or chicken stock. You can use water if stock is not available.

Put little salt in the rice.

On the other side of your gas, put a dry pan on fire on a very low heat.

Melt some margarine or a small quantity of oil in the pan.

Put all the ingredients listed above except your rice, seasoning and meat stock.

Put some salt and knorr cubes to taste.

By now your rice will be ready. Your rice must not be too soft i.e mashy.

Pour the mixture in the pot containing the rice and steam for five minutes.

At this point you can stir and leave for two minutes.

Check your seasoning and adjust if necessary.

Remove the pot from fire, your fried rice is ready.

Close your doors and windows before making gbegiri soup otherwise your neighbors will think the food in your fridge is rancid.
