How to Make DodoGizzard aka Gizdo!

Hey blogworld,
Its been a whileeee I did a food post but it was worth the wait! Gizdo is a side dish that's served at owambes and tastes so delicious especially when hot!

You will need:
Boiled Gizzard- When it is cool, chop it in cubes. Incase you don't know, gizzard needs to be cleaned very well before cooking. You boil it first in plain water for about 15 minutes, toss that water away, and continue boiling in fresh water, adding salt and maggi to taste.

Plantain- Make sure it is very ripe and dark, almost going off so its sweet and sticky.

Stew- Tomatoes, Onions and Peppers, blended and fried with salt and maggi until its thick. I always have some in the freezer.

Diced onions

Olive oil

Salt, pepper and any spices you like

Step 1- Fry the chopped gizzard in a little oil with the onions, until crispy

Step 2- Pour the stew over the gizzard and let it simmer for 3 minutes or so

Step 3- Add some salt to your plantain and pour it in, mixing well with the sauce and gizzard

Step 4-Pour in more oil, so that the plantains can get cooked. Mix well

Step 5- Cover the pan, and cook for about 20 minutes on low heat. Stir every 5 minutes or so to make sure the plantains don't stick to the bottom of the pan

Step 6- Enjoy while hot!

As usual, try it out and let me know how it turned out!
