The Zahmilah

Hello K’s Cuisine family, hope you are all doing great.

Months ago I announced on my Instagram and facebook page about a sauce from K’s Cuisine coming to your kitchen soon. The time has now come!

I had initially thought of bottling and selling the sauce but after careful consideration I decided to give you K’s Cuisine families the sauce recipe for a token so that you can make yours in the comfort of your kitchen as much as you want and as many times as you want. For a small charge, you have a keeper recipe for a lifetime. Not a very smart business idea on my part because I could make so much more money bottling the sauce but it’s not just about money. I would love this sauce to be accessible to as many people as possible all over the world and the best way to make that happen is to give you the recipe. So guys let’s do this!

the-zk-zahmilah

 

So what is Zahmilah sauce?

Zahmilah sauce named after my two daughters Zahrah and Kamilah is specifically formulated as marinade for grills, as dip and sauce. It is delicious, awesome and just superb. This sauce is easy to make and specifically formulated for grills but can be used for a whole lot more than that. You can use to fry eggs, marinate potatoes, yam, plantain before frying or grilling, add to stew base and a whole lot more.

I will be sharing many recipes you can make with this sauce on my blog and social media pages. If you are not already following me on Instagram and facebook please do so as not to miss any recipe and updates. Instagram handles are @kscuisine and @kscuisinespices.

Asun (spicy smoked goat meat)

Hello Kfam,

Today’s recipe is for Asun. Asun is very spicy smoked goat meat. It is traditionally prepared over open fire (grill) then sautéed in hot pepper and spices. This delicacy can be served as appetiser, main meal or snack.

Asun is prepared with goat meat with skin on but for those of us who live abroad and do not get goat with skin on you can also use the one without. Also the meat can be grilled in oven in the absence of open fire. Follow my recipe to making flavor packed asun. Let’s cook:

Asun

INGREDIENTS

1kg Goat meat

3 scotch bonnet (red, green and yellow)

1 Onion

2 stock cubes

Salt

DIRECTIONS

1) Wash the goat meat and put in a pot. Season with 1 stock cube  and salt and boil

IMG_5476

K’s Cuisine tip: Do not add water to boil the goat meat. Boil on very low heat so the water that comes from the meat doesn’t dry up too quick.

2) When the goat meat is cooked soft increase the heat and let the stock dry up with the meat

IMG_5494

Tip: This ensures all flavour from the goat meat is retained.

3) When the water dries up you should get a bit of fat from the goat meat settle in the pot. Keep this aside.

IMG_5497

4) Cut the goat meat in bite size, pour in oven tray and grill in the oven.

IMG_5519

5) Rough blend the peppers and onion. You can use food processor for this.

IMG_5486

You can use just red scotch bonnet. I prefer the 3 for colours and flavor 

6) In a wok, add the oil from the goat meat then add the rough blended peppers. Pour in the grilled goat meat and sautéed for a minute or two.

IMG_5522

7) Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.

That’s Asun ready

This can be eaten as starter or main meal

Nigerian Salad

Nigerian salad is like no other salad. Like seriously why have potato salad or vegetable salad or one of the salad when you can have them all in one? lol..my Nigerian people don’t do things halfway for real.

I have often wondered how we arrived at our Nigerian salad. Ok I have a theory and here it goes…Mama Biola made salad for her party, mama Sola was at the party and ate the salad, Few months later Mama Sola had her own party and decided her salad must be better than Mama Biola’s own so she added more ingredients to hers, Mama Tinuke was at Mama Biola’s party and when it was turn for her own party she decided to add more ingredients to the salad than what she had at Mama Biola and so goes the trend till all the ‘add ‘ables’ have been added. Makes a nice story doesn’t it? hehehee.

Enough of my silly theory let’s make some Nigerian salad.  For this salad I have made use of a spiraliser which was recently sent to me to review. I will post the product review as a separate post. I used the spiraliser for the carrots, cucumber, onions and potatoes

INGREDIENTS

1 Cucumber

1 small Cabbage

6 Carrot

1 bunch Lettuce

1 Onion

1 can Sweetcorn

Boiled eggs (Sliced)

Pasta (Boiled)

Potatoes (Spiralised and boiled)

Salad tomatoes

150g Corned beef

Baked beans (Optional)

Salad Cream

DIRECTIONS

1) Wash all the vegetables, Spiralise, cube or cut as suitable.

IMG_0105

2) I spiralised the carrots, cucumber, onions and potatoes.

IMG_0099

3) In a clean salad bowl, start layering the vegetables. I started with cabbage, lettuce and onions.

IMG_0110

4) Then Carrot..

Spiralised salad

5) Followed by cucumber, potatoes and sweetcorn

IMG_0114

6) Lastly i add eggs and corned beef and salad tomatoes. If you are using baked beans also add at this stage.

Salad

7) Cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge to chill

Nigerian salad

8) When ready to eat, take from a side, add salad cream and enjoy

The whole point of layering is so when you take from the side you get all the ingredients in a portion

Nigerian salad is not complete without salad cream and not just any salad cream, it’s the Heinz brand!

Assorted Meat Pepper Soup

Pepper Soup is legendary no jokes. This soup right there gives joy. Pepper soup is made up of stuff Yoruba people call ‘onishe meje muri kan’ 😂 meaning Seven ailment, One cure. Pepper soup is regarded as badass like that! If you have flu, pepper soup is the go to, malaria? Pepper soup…eermm it might not cure malaria but then the hotness and spiciness of this soup will stimulate tastebuds. Let’s just say pepper soup is bae

Pepper Soup is spicy and hot broth and it’s made from stock and spices. It is commonly served in parties, restaurants and bars as appetiser but can be eaten as a meal. There are different types of pepper soup named by what is used in making. For example if using fish, it is called fish pepper soup, if chicken chicken pepper soup and if using assorted meat, it is then called assorted meat pepper soup. Find below my take on assorted meat peppersoup. Let’s cook:

Suya

Anytime my mum is coming over to the UK and ask what we her kids want her to bring along, my younger brother’s request has never changed in over 12years. It has always been and it is still suya! Honestly who doesn’t like suya? Suya is legend and oh let me use that slang Suya is ‘bae’..lol

Traditionally prepared by Hausas reffered to as mai suya (suya man) and if you are to mention one Nigerian food that is eaten all across Nigeria, look no further it’s suya! It’s flavourful and delights the tastebud. Pair suya with bread and chilled bottle of coke and experience a new high sigh.

Make no mistake, the mai suyas do suya best. It’s not just about the spice mix. The cut of the beef, the temperature, technique and skill cannot be overated. As I live in diaspora where I can’t just go to a street junction to buy from mai suya, I make mine and below is how I go about it. Let’s go:
 Preparation time: 2 hours

Cooking time: 1 hour

Total time: 3 hours

INGREDIENTS

Beef

Suya spice

Salt

Stock cubes

Sunflower or Vegetable oil

DIRECTIONS

1) Soak the skewers in cold water for 4-6hours

2) Using a sharp knife, thinly cut the beef

20150503_203007

3)Thread the beef on the Skewers

4) Using a brush, rub the meat with sunflower oil, salt and stock cubes mixture then cover beef in suya spice

IMG_5309

5) Leave to marinate for 2 hours then grill for 40 minutes

IMG_5312

Turn the beef to grill the other side. sprinkle some oil and let roast for another 10 minutes.

SuyaSuya is ready.  Sprinkle suya spice on it and serve with Onions and tomatoes. I just had to serve in newspaper to create memories..

I added green pepper to above picture to add colour.

Meal type: Sides, Appetisers

INGREDIENTS
