20170121_162417-01Last week I entered a food photo contest  organised by the bukafinder, i was amongst the final 5 and i am glad i won with a total of 1,709 votes.  I still can’t believe it as i didn’t think i will get that many votes and i would like to thank everyone that voted for me. The contest is supposed to run for 4 weeks and winners are picked weekly via the app. Each week a winner gets a gift voucher of their choice and i chose the Asos voucher. I won the week 2 contest and there is still week 4 left if you are interested in taking part.

This is the dish i made and i will share with you steps in making it and ingredients i used. I made a classic white rice and fish stew, a simple and very popular Nigerian dish which happens to be one of my all time favourite food. I have always loved this as a child, especially when you throw in a side like fried plantain (dodo). I chose this dish because it is very simple, delicious and very filling.




  1. White rice (i used Basmati rice for this dish)
  2. salt


  • Pour required amount of rice into a bowl, rinse with water and drain.
  • Put water into a pot and add  the rice ensuring  the water just about covers the rice.
  • Add  some salt just a sprinkle to taste.
  • Cook till the water is just about drying up this usually takes 1o minutes roughly for a basmati rice.
  • Check that the rice is done. If not, add a tiny bit of water and keep cooking for 1 or 2 minutes more ( it shouldn’t take too long because basmati tends to be soggy if cooked for longer time).
  • Check to see if rice is soft and water has dried up completely.
  • Once done this is ready to serve.20170121_163814




  1. Fish (i used red beam fish)
  2. salt
  3. Maggi
  4. Habanero chilli pepper
  5. Red peppers
  6. Oil
  7. Onions
  8. Tomatoes


  • Blend red peppers, onions, habanero chilli pepper, tomatoes all together.
  • Pour some oil into a pot and heat.
  • Once Oil is hot, add all blended ingredients to the hot oil.
  • Add fish to the pot and sprinkle some salt and maggi to your taste.
  • Cover the pot and allow to cook until the oil begins to form on top of the stew.
  • Once oil comes to the top, it is ready to serve.
