COOKING
DIRECTIONS

  1. Put the
    peeled beans in a pot, pour water up to the same level as the beans and
    start cooking. If using the dry fish, add it at this time.
  2. Cook till
    tender adding more water from time to time, if necessary. Always keep the
    water at the same level as the beans so that when the beans is done, you
    will not have too much water in the porridge.
  3. When the
    beans is soft, add the onions, crayfish, pepper and seasoning, stir well.
  4. Add palm oil
    and cook till the oil changes to deep yellow.
  5. Stir very
    well, add salt to taste and it is ready to be served. Bear in mind that
    the porridge may look watery at this time but it gets thicker when it has
    cooled down.
If you prepared it for your baby, place single
feed portions in a flat plate, wrap with a plastic film and freeze.
Once frozen, remove the now solidified portions
and place in a ziploc bag or container and put back in the freezer. So when you
want to feed your baby, all you need to do is bring one portion out and warm it
up in the microwave.
