Ground Nut Chop


  • Chicken
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Bone Stock
  • Ground nuts (peanuts)
  • Okoro (garden egg)
  • Eggs [hard-boiled]
  • Rice [boiled]

Fry the dismembered chicken with tomatoes and onions. Then put in a saucepan with stock and leave. Grind up ground nuts to a fine texture, mix into a paste with a little water and add to the chicken. Heat it all up and let it thicken. Add 2 or 3 okoro, and two or three hard-boiled egg (1 per head). The stew is served in soup plates over a foundation of rice, according to one's appetite. The side dishes then put in an appearance and are put on the table in small plates or saucers:

  • Sliced raw pineapple
  • Roasted ground nuts (whole and powdered)
  • Sliced orange
  • Fried onions
  • Raw sliced onions
  • Sliced tomato
  • Slice fresh bananas, sliced fried bananas
  • Paw Paw (native melon)
  • Grated coconut (raw and baked)
  • Grated ginger
  • Ground dry red and green peppers

Mix all this conglomeration together, not forgetting salt, and eat it.
