Nigerian Tomato Sauce Recipe

Nigerian Tomato Sauce
Nigerian Tomato Sauce is a versatile base for almost all staple foods. It is a blend of tomatoes, peppers and a host of other ingredients together.

It has a great versatility and makes cooking easier and saves time too. The aim of Nigerian Tomato Sauce is to get a pipping red colour sauce for your cookings.

Boil the Nigerian Tomato Sauce on high heat if you want to keep it for a couple of days. But if you intend to store and use it for a couple of months, then make sure to boil on low heat, to prevent it from getting sour.

Your cooking time will be determined by the quantity of ingredients you are using, so feel free to adjust the recipe to your taste.

Below is a well detailed and easy Nigerian Tomato Sauce recipe for you to follow.

Nigerian Tomato Sauce Ingredients:
• 5 red bell peppers
• 4 habanero peppers
• 10 chilli peppers
• 20 big plum tomatoes
• 3 medium-sized onions
• 3 medium fresh ginger
• 5 big pieces garlic
• 1 cup vegetable oil

Nigerian Tomato Sauce Preparation:
• Peel the ginger, garlic and onions. Then wash them with the peppers, tomatoes and any other ingredients you want to add. Now, grind or blend everything to a smooth paste.

• In a pot, add some vegetable oil and pour the blended mixture into it immediately, (don’t heat the oil). If you heat the oil, the Nigerian Tomato Sauce will start to fry instead of boil.

• Boil the Nigerian Tomato Sauce on low heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes, depending on the consistency you want, then allow to cool and pour into an airtight container.

• Store the Nigerian Tomato Sauce in the fridge and use it to make tomato stew, chicken stew, fish stew, jollof rice or any other recipe that requires red tomato sauce. Enjoy!
