GOOD MORNING TO EVERY HIVERS,
Do you know as you can prepare some concoctions to drink so as to tackle some ailments. That is how some of these natural herbs leaf are also used for cooking processes. And when you use these leaves for cooking it indirectly served as herbs concoction that we prepare and drink.
Before I could get these things ,I had to visit some areas where most of these things are sold. I visited a mini market not quite far from house.
TOMATOES AND RODO
PROCESSED COW SKIN.
All the recipes and ingredients I used were those above ,though it didn't end there. You don't just put the recipes into the pot just like that ,some preparatory processes need to take place which I refered to as pre-cooking preparation. Here I prepare the veggies,blend the pepper and clean the cow skin.
All that been done,at this stage of cooking process,I am going to cooking parsay. The first thing is get my clean pot ready on the cooking device(gas cooker). After the pot pass through a heating process,the next thing to do pour your red oil inside the pot
After the red oil gas gotten burnt,I poured my locust beans. Then after that I pour my grinded tomatoes and red pepper.
After all those proceses have been done,the next thing is to pour the clean cow skin(ponmon) and smoked fish.
Furthermore,when I fried the pepper together with the cow skin meat,locust beans and smoked fish. I leave it for like 20minutes , after that I now add the veggies,but the most important thing is the bitter Leaf leaves.
The most important part is the bitter Leaf inclusion in the meal preparation. I visited my neighbor's garden to plug the bitter leaf leaves but meanwhile due to it name you can just add the bitter leaf to the veggies it needs to be sqeeezed so as to reduce the bitterness of the leaf. It is also known as Vernonia amygdalina(VA) which is refered to as bitter leaf in this part of the world.
