Ingridients for obe ata din din

  •  12 tatashe pepper
  •  3 tablespoons sunflower oil (vegetable oil)
  •  1 tablespoon of red palm oil
  •  3 medium onions
  • Habanero pepper (to taste)
  •  600g of shaki cow tripe)
  •  3 pieces of dried fish (mangala)

  •  Before cooking pepper stew (Obe Ata Din Din)

  • Soak and debone the dry fish.

  • Clean and cut the shaki into medium pieces
  • Grind the ogiri okpei and crayfish with a dry mill

  • Slice one onion and slice the others.
  • Rinse and remove the seeds from the tatashe. It is wise to plant the tatashe pepper as the seeds make your stew bitter. Also, your blender is not able to grind the seeds, which is not good when you are serving your stew. I also love the habanero pepper.

Cooking Direction:

  • Pour the mixed pepper mixture into a pot and cook until all the water evaporates.
    Boil the shaki and diced onion until done

  • Pour vegetable oil into a clean pan and heat it.
