My recipe for efo-for 5 people

Ingredients 

*4Onions
*5 or more Scotch or habanero peppers
*2 filter folded sized chunk of fresh giver
*Thyme
*A small piece of garlic
*Crayfish-adjust according to preference
*meat-tripe,beef,smoked turkey
* 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
*water-3 cups of water
*palm oil
*0.5 to 1 cup of grated melon seeds
*3 maggi cubes-crayfish or plain one
*fresh spinach leaves

Step one 
*blend onions,peppers,garlic,dried crayfish and ginger while adding a water for a thick consistency

Recipe-The way I prefer mine
Wash and prepare all meat you are going to use for the efo
Add water and star to boil on cooker
Add chopped onions
Add result of step one and cook for 30 mins
Add tomato paste and cook for another 5 mins
Add maggi cubes
Add palm oil-adjust to your preference-1 cup is enough for me
Add water to grated melon seeds,mix weland add to the meat you are cooking
Cook for an extra 8 mins
Add spinach and cook for 6mins because spinach cooks very fast

Average cooking time should be about 45-60 mins depending on the toughness of the meat.
You can add meat tenderiser as a spice when adding maggi cubes

Serve with pounded yam-add water to mixture and pound through with a wooden spoon for about 15 minutes until it looks and tastes cooked.pictures are inserted below this post.

All ingredients can be bought at local grocery store or African stores
