Ayamashe: The Perfect Accompaniment  To Ofada Rice

Ayamashe: The perfect accompaniment to Ofada Rice

There are few Nigerian that I now that don’t like Ayamashe AKA Ofada Stew. As a matter of fact I don’t think I can trust someone that openly declares that they don’t like Ayamashe. It has fast become a Nigerian Party (AKA Owanbe) staple and comes only second to the Nigerian Jollof.

You don’t need to be invited to (or crash) a Nigerian party to enjoy this stew at home. With a few simple ingredients you too can enjoy Ayamashe in the comfort of your home.

This recipe uses mostly hot chili because I am a pepper lover. As a pepper lover 🌶, Ayamashe is the perfect excuse to punish members of my family and friends that have offended me without detection. You see to keep it mild you’re supposed to use mostly bell peppers but as a Yoruba woman, I use mostly chili because I can handle the heat. Not everyone in my family can though. So next time you offend me and still expect to eat my food without apologizing, don’t be impressed when you see Ofada rice. it’s not because I love you, it’s because I know you will suffer! 😂😂😂.
