Direction for cooking Buka Stew/ Obe ata dindin :
Before you start with the Obe ata stew:
*Cook or boil the meat you would be using and Set aside for later use
*If you want to add eggs, then also boil them beforehand, peel of the shell and set aside.
Now to prepare this Buka stew
* Add the pepper, tomatoes and one onion in a blender and blend(you can also make use of canned stewed tomatoes if you don’t have fresh tomatoes)…make sure to add little water as you blend, but if you end up with a watery mixture, simply add it to a pot and boil to remove excess liquid.
* Next, place a pot on medium heat , pour in the Palm oil , heat it up until is very hot(but not smoking), then add the meat and fry until dry. Then take them out and set aside.
* Now add an onion(shredded) into the hot oil, fry a bit and then add the blended tomato & pepper mix. Cook until the mixture loses its sour taste, or until you begin to see the oil rise to the top.
* Next , add the garlic powder, bouillon cubes (maggi /knorr cubes) , ground crayfish and salt to taste.You can also add more seasoning if you like to. Mix thoroughly, cover and leave to cook for 2 minutes.
* Add the fried meat, mix well, cover the pot, simmer for 5 minutes and put off the heat.
* Add the boiled eggs and your Buka Stew/Obe Ata dindin is ready ..ENJOY.
You can use the Obe ata dindin stew for Jollof Rice, plain Boiled Rice, Boiled Yam , Obe ila /obe ilasa , Fried Plantain, Boiled Sweet Potatoes , Boiled Irish Potatoes, Fried Yams and also combined with other Nigerian soups.

Loving these recipes. Not sure hih to get some of the ingredients, but I am working on it
Hi Peggy, glad to have you here.
Do let me know which ingredient you can’t find
and I would tell you where you can get them anywhere in the world
Can’t wait for you to try this stew 🙂
In the cooking a packet containing spices was used. Also in one recipe I saw Banga spice being used.
I do so wast to make this dish that my friend has told me about.
Are there any alternative spice to use in the meantime?
Thank you and keep the channel going please.
Hi Peggy, what packet spices are you talking about?
There is none used in the recipe hun.
As for the banga spices,that recipe could be Ofe akwu https://www.nigerianfoodtv.com/2014/03/ofe-akwu-igbo-style-banga-stewsoup.html
or Banga soup itself https://www.nigerianfoodtv.com/2013/04/how-to-make-banga-soup-urhobo-banga-soup.html
I have found a Nigerian market not far from me, has everything needed

How do I use garlic clove?
Hi Susan, Peel and grind with the onions and tomatoes.
How do I use garlic cloves?
And no water is added too? I tried this once without water and the stew was all clogged up!
Hi Damilare, if you make use of fresh tomatoes, the stew won't ''clog up'', but you can always add a little liquid if your stew turns out too thick for your preference.
Fantastic! No more buka during lunch break…
yes oo 🙂
Can one use those long dry pepper?
Yes, but watch it, they are very hot.
Hi hi! Thanks so much for this! But one question pls. The palm oil, it will turn to groundnut oil if you are using it to fry the meat. Can't I fry the meat with groundnut oil and heat up the palm oil for cooking the stew. Just to be sure. God bless ya
Hi dear,You can fry the meat separately with vegetable oil, but make sure that you heat up the palm oil until it starts to smoke. This gives the stew a unique taste.
Please can you post d video of ds stew?
Hi Ify, the video is on the page, just before the list of ingredients.
Hello,Cant see were the meat stock was added,pls help.
No meat stock is used in obe ata dindin . You can save your meat stock and use it for other recipes.
Tnk u so much for sharing. Going to try evrything one after another. God bless u.
Thanks dear, and do let me know if I can be of any help 🙂
