RECIPE FOR STIR FRIED CONCOCTION BASMATI RICE

Concoction rice has been on the Nigerian food scene for ages but it was a meal I didn’t really care about because I saw so many versions of it that I didn’t really like nor enjoyed. Some where just made up of palm oil and pepper with a little crayfish and seasoning. I just didn’t get it so it was not on my list of favorite meals until I told myself to look into it and modify it.

I decided to go for basmati rice, swapped the palm oil for vegetable oil and instead of making it a one pot meal, I made it a stir fry. 🙂 You know where I am going right? I brought in the Asian way of cooking, using an African recipe. God bless Asians and their techniques. Boy it was so good! It tasted like nothing I had tasted before and had more depth than the usual concoction rice. You should try this.Damnnn! You should!!! 😀

Let’s get the pots and pans rocking!

1

Cook basmati rice until it is almost done. See how to cook thePerfect Basmati Rice here. After cooking, spread it on a tray to cool down to avoid clumps.

2

Steam smoked fish with some salt until it is soft. This does two things. It kills germs and softens the fish, infusing some salt into the fish.

3

Slice the veggies. In a pre-heated frying pan, add some vegetable oil and toss in the vegetables. Stir fry for a few minutes.

4

Add blended crayfish powder, some cayenne pepper, seasoning cubes and some salt to taste. Blend it all properly.

5

Add the fish, prawns and some fish stock to add some fluidity to the sauce. Fry for a few minutes.

6

Now, add the cooled basmati rice and blend in nicely. Season some more if needed.
