Cut the plantain into small sizes like cubes and fry in vegetable oil until its brown then put it in a sieve. Fry the gizzards in the same oil until brown and put it in a sieve too, you can grill the gizzards if you want instead of frying it’s a healthier option.

Chop the tomatoes and peppers and blend coarsely, heat up some oil and add chopped onions in it fry it for a bit then add crayfish (optional). Stir fry for 5 seconds then pour the blended mix into the pot and fry for about 10-15 minutes until the sour taste is lost. Add seasoning and salt to taste, cook for two minutes then set aside.

Add the fried gizzards to the sauce and cook for 1 minute to soak in the sauce, add the fried plantains, chopped onions, green and red peppers. Mix thoroughly and put off the heat and your meal is ready. The gizdodo can be eaten alone or with jollof rice, coconut rice, white rice or any other meal you desire to eat it with.
