Nigerian Mixed Vegetable Sauce (white sauce)


Nigerian Mixed Vegetable Sauce (white sauce), nigerian food tv, nigeian food recipes

I love to prepare this mixed vegetable sauce whenever I have excess vegetables from making either Shawarma or Nigerian salad
  This vegetable sauce is surely a healthier and richer alternative to the everyday tomato based  beef  or chicken stew .

It is loaded with vitamins and nutrients and contains most of the common vegetables you can get around you.

  So, if you are yearning for a change from the regular, this sauce is what you need, and you don't have to wait until you have leftover veggies before you try out this delicious mixed vegetable sauce.

 Here's how to prepare it.

Ingredients for the Mixed Vegetable Sauce


   * 500g boneless Chicken breast or chicken drumsticks
   * 4 Fresh Plum Tomatoes (the hard type Tomatoes)
   * 6 medium Carrots
   * 1  Onions bulb
   * 1 spring onion(optional)
   * 1 small Cabbage
   * 3 medium sized Irish Potatoes
   * 1 Green Bell Pepper
   * 1 cooking spoon Vegetable Oil (optional because the chicken has natural oil)
   *  1 tablespoonful thyme and curry
   * 2 stock cubes(bouillon cube)
   * Salt - to taste

Preparation

  ** First Wash and cut all the vegetables.
Scrape the carrots and cut into smaller pieces and chop the spring onions .
Cut the plum tomatoes and the bell pepper into smaller pieces.
Cut the cabbage into tiny pieces. Then set all aside.

** Wash and Peel the Irish potatoes,rinse and cut into tiny pieces(like cubes). Set aside

Cooking Directions

 *Wash and cut the chicken into pieces. Place in a pot, add thyme, curry, chopped onions,one stock cube and salt.
  Cook until the chicken is done. You might need to add a little water if the water dries up before the chicken is tender. Then transfer unto a plate.
   Tip: If you are using a chicken part with bones,separate the meat from the bones.And set the meat aside for later use. 
 If you'll rather not separate the meat, no problem! simply set aside on a plate, until needed.

   *Pour the chicken stock into another pot(watch out for the chicken bones at the bottom)(you can pass the chicken stock through a sieve, to keep the tiny broken bones from entering the pot.)

 Add the vegetable oil,spring onions(If using), cabbage, chopped tomatoes, potatoes and one stock cube. Cover and cook for about 10-15 minutes.
 Tip: you can also add the carrots at this stage but I don't like overcooked or very crunchy carrots, so I cut them very tiny and add them at the next step.

  * After 15 minutes, you'll notice that the cabbage is tender and the sauce is thicker due to the softened potatoes;
 Then add the carrots,green bell pepper and the chicken. Add salt to taste and Leave to simmer for 5 minutes and the Mixed vegetable sauce is ready to be served.

   This delicious sauce can be served alone as a meal for weight watchers, or with boiled rice, boiled yams, potatoes or plantains. Enjoy!

    1. Yes it would come out fine, but you need to cook the beef until it's really tender.

    1. Onyi, you can choose to blend the cooked potatoes and add it to the sauce or use it just as it is in the recipe above.It would soften and thicken the sauce on its own.

    1. Onyi love, sorry for the late response, hope the birthday is not gone yet. The raisin is the tiny black fruit you see in my pancake picture
      And no, you can't use browning for the ice cream.
      For your homemade chocolate ice cream, You need 4 ingredients: 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla,1 cup of heavy whipping cream ,1 dark chocolate bar and 7 ounces of sweetened condensed milk.
      Melt the chocolate, leave to cool a bit and then add the heavy whipping cream, milk and vanilla. Whisk thoroughly , pour into a flat pan and freeze.Then scoop out and enjoy.

    1. Onyi dear, you are not bothering at all :) . You can check the big supermarkets , they usually have all these imported products. As for the milk dear, condensed milk is better.
      The vanilla is the same used for cakes. Let me know how it turns out.

    So I guess its safe to lightly fry the vegetables before adding the chicken stock?

  9. Hello Nky,
    Thanks for your explanation:
    please, how about the use of corn flour as thickener? where can that come in? I would like my potatoes to still be visible, so i wouldn't want them semi-crushed (if possible). I have also heard that you can include boiled egg: is that ok? I also notice that the carrots in your recipe came in a little later- wont that make the carrots a bit too crunchy, considering that it'll simmer for only 5 minutes?

    Please your suggestions are most welcome
    thanks

    1. Hi Pauline,You can add the corn flour after adding all the vegetables in the last step, but dilute in water, so that it is not lumpy.
      If you don't want to get semi crushed potatoes, add it at the same time as the carrots and cook until all vegetables are done to your taste.
      My carrots cook in 5 minutes, but if you want it very tender , you can cook for a longer period.
      Let me know how it turns out :)

    Thanks dear you are doing a great job here. I can't get Irish potatoes so can I use the normal flour? If yes please let me know and when do I add it. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can use corn starch (the type used for making pap) or potato starch, but if you don't have that you can use the normal flour, but you'll have to cook it separately by first dissolving in water and then pour into a pot, add a little oil and cook until the flour taste is gone, then add it into the sauce pot. Use the same quantity as the corn starch in the recipe.

    Thanks a lot sis! Am definitely going to try it. But how to get Irish potato is the problem. Pls where can I get it? Am in Uyo, Akwa Ibom. I've been seeing Hausa people selling potato, but I can't identify if it's irish. Pls how can I identify? And if I can't get Irish or corn flour, can I use any other potato?

    1. Hi Ekemini, it is that potato that hausa people carry on wheel barrow. That one that is used for salad.
