Rice and Stew
Seasoning (Kitchen Glory)
Stock cube
Groundnut oil
Onga Spice

1. I parboiled the rice for about 10 minutes and washed with clean water for the third time and added half teaspoon of salt, for the purpose of reducing the efficacy of the preservatives of the polished rice and reducing the starch. 

2. For the stew, I poured the groundnut oil in the hot pot.
3. After one minute, I added the sliced onions and tomatoe paste. 
4. I stirred them in the hot oil till fried.
5. I poured two cups of water in the pot. 
6 After about 5 minutes, I added maggi, salt, cryfish, onga spice and and kitchen glory spices. 
7. I left to cook for about 15 minutes and my stew was ready.
