How to prepare delicious Nkwobi

*De-hoof the cow foot and cut the meat into bite-size chunks and Wash thoroughly

*Put the meat in a pot, add little water that is enough to cook the meat. Add chopped onions, stock cubes and any meat spice of choice, allow to cook until it’s done.

* When the meat is cooking, pound the potash into powder and add a little water in it to dissolve it. Stir continuously, strain it with a sieve, and set the potash liquid aside to be used later.

If you’ll rather make use of the meat stock, then mix the powdered potash with a little of the stock left after cooking the meat.

*Pour the red palm oil into a clean pot and add the potash liquid into the oil. Stir the mixture continuously until the red palm oil begins to thicken until it becomes yellow.

*Add the ground pepper, ground crayfish, ground ehuru and a little stock cube. Stir all these ingredients into the oil.

*Add the cooked cow foot into the palm oil mixture and mix thoroughly, until you get all the meat covered in the oil.

*Place the pot on heat and simmer. Stir continuously to prevent burning and put off the heat, when the meat is well heated. You will see the palm oil bubbling in the pot.

*Put the meat on a plate or the small traditional wooden mortar… if you don’t have the mortar, you can make use of brown ceramic bowls to get the traditional effect.

*You can garnish the Nkwobi with the sliced onion rings and thinly sliced Utazi or spinach leaves.
