CUISINE - CHRONICLES OF THE MANY THINGS I CAN DO WITH PLANTAIN X GIZDODO


Hi people! So the 3rd edition of the Knorr taste cooking competition is on, and these Chef Judges just keep opening my eyes and understanding to know that there is more to food, I have learnt lots from the 1st edition, to this audition and the main competition, I have heard and researched lots of the food terms said on the show *I AM A FOODIE*. I heard Chef Fregz, one of my favorite Chef ask what Gizdodo was, the name sounded so funny and Nigerian, then I ran off to google, trust me, most of the contestants at the auditions were as clueless as I was. I found out that GIZDODO is a combination of Gizzard and Plantain! I tried it out and it tastes awesome. With very simple recipe and easy to cook method.
INGREDIENTS: 

  • Ripe plantain
  • Gizzard
  • Black Pepper
  • Green Pepper
  • 1 large size Tomato
  • 1 Onions
  • 2 bonnet pepper
  • Salt 
  • Curry
  • Maggi seasoning.
Plantain

Ingredients.

PROCEDURE
  • Wash all cooking ingredients- gizzard, pepper, tomato and onion.
  • Dice the plantain and fry it, Cut then cook the gizzard and fry it separately from the plantain. 
  • Blend the tomatoes, the bonnet peppers and onions in a blender.
  • Fry the blended ingredients in little oil, add pinch of salt, pinch of black pepper and curry 
  • Pour the plantain and gizzard inside the mixture of frying ingredients (tomato, pepper,onion, salt and curry) then stir all together and fry lightly for 2mins.
  • Lastly Serve the dish and decorate with onion and green pepper or as desired then EAT!

Very easy and affordable recipe, it can be served at parties, get togethers, bars and any kind of event. try it out and tell me how you like it, if you have a different method, please share in the comment section, my sweet friend who likes to eat healthy suggested that I cook the plantain and the gizzard not fry! what do y'all think?
Wondering what you will do with the Stock water? preserve it in the refrigerator for an awesome jollof rice *winks*
