Wow!!! A sneak peak into Mrs O’s kitchen.
Let’s see how far we can go here. I will do my best to post a recipe here every Saturday.
Okay now, welcome to my kitchen. Kindly put on your apron, grab a knife + chopping board or your food processor, a pot or a wok and some food ingredients + Spices. Remember to keep your sponge and dish washing liquid near by as you will be doing the dishes immediately after. No dirty dishes in the sink after cooking!!!
For this dish, I had everything ready so that once I began cooking, it was just take and throw in. I have prepared this particular dish before with chicken and with fish. But for this recipe I had this done with eggs.
- Mixed Vegetables (carrot, green peas, sweet corn and green beans)
- Red Chili peppers
- Purple Cabbage
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground ginger
- Parsley flakes
- Canola oil
- Garlic (optional)
Wash, peel and dice potatoes. Rinse mixed vegetables (I used the frozen ones so I rinsed to remove ice). Cut onions into strings. Blend Tomatoes, garlic, Red chili pepper and habanero and set aside to be used. Boil eggs in a pot and let’s cool and remove shell. Shred purple cabbage to preferred texture (I like mine tiny)
Put 2 tablespoon of canola oil (any oil of your choice) in pot, throw in onions and put pot on fire. (Not a fan of getting pot hot before putting oil and then leaving to get hot again before throwing in the onions) As it begins to simmer, throw in blended tomatoes and peppers and stir to distribute evenly. Put in the potatoes to cook along and absorb all the sauce. Cover your pot and let cook.
Watch sauce from time to time to add in cinnamon and ginger and also to make sure it doesn’t burn. If potatoes are still not tender to your taste, add a little water and let cook. – We do not want any water left in the sauce when the potatoes are cook. When water is dried up, add mix vegetables. We do not want that to cook for long so stir it in and add salt to taste then remove from heat. I don’t eat raw cabbage so I throw in my purple cabbage and parsley flakes and let the heat of the food steam it.
* You can have it with rice or just alone. We had previous ones with little rice. But for this, we enjoyed it just as served with some hot “spice and orange” tea.
