Hie do you have any recipe books for sale dear
Not yet, dear.
Thank you for all these findings and am really feeling the taste for am from that area you mention back home. Achu, fufu corn , njam njama , plantains, cornchaff, jeloff etc are all my favourites.. You are just best , you have the touch and do what i know.
I will request you to inform me on a good research what powder or a substance that is organic or can be joint together to make our stews a bit thicker for accompaning rice, fufu and other carbos, just to make sure there is no water running side by side the oil after final cooking.
Thanks for your great stuff its teaching and enriching.

Hi Francis, I am so glad the recipes have been useful. You do not need to add any substance to thicken stews. Just blend lots of tomatoes and onions together then fry the mixture in oil until the tomatoes no longer taste sour. Then you can add spices like garlic, ginger, herbs, etc. Add very little water to your stew so it isn’t watery. You can use the search button on the right side of the blog to search for my stew recipes. Hope this helps.
Excellent recipes so glad I found this. Stuff I’ve eaten but thought I could never make
Thank you, Sonya!
