Gizzdodo is simply combination of dodo and gizzard in sauce. This can be served as side dish to mains such as jollof rice, fried rice and other dishes or eaten as a meal. Find below my recipe for Gizdodo:
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 60 minutes
Total time: 70 minutes
2 ripe plantains
400g of chicken or turkey gizzard
1 scotch bonnet/habanero (rodo)
1 bell pepper (tatashe) or red pepper
1 big ripe fresh tomato
1 brown or red onion
2 cooking spoon of vegetable or sunflower oil
Maggi cube (or stock cube of your choice)
1) Wash gizzard, put in a pot and add chopped onion, maggi cube, 1 teaspoon of curry powder and 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme, add a little water and leave on low heat to boil.
2) When the gizzard is cooked, cut in cubes and set aside.
3) Dice the plantains into cubes (about the size you have diced your gizzard) , deep fry and set it aside.
4) Fry the gizzard (you can use the same oil used in frying the plantain).
5) Blend the scotch bonnet, bell pepper, tomato and the remaining half of the onion.
6) Heat 2-3 cooking spoons of vegetable or sunflower oil and add the blended pepper, 1 maggi cube, 1 teaspoon of curry powder, 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme, chicken stock and leave to fry.
7) When this is well fried, add the fried gizzard ,stir in the stew and leave for one mimute before adding the fried plantain.
8) Stir the plantain and gizzard in the stew and leave for another one minute before taking it off heat.
9) See the gizzard and dodo in the juicy richness of the stew? Yes your gizdodo is all done. Easy peasy. Isn’t it?
