  • 3 tbsp pure groundnut paste or peanut butter
  • 2 1/2 pints stock or water
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 slices fresh root ginger
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and chilli powder
  • 8 oz white yam diced
  • 10 small okras trimmed (optional)


  • Place the groundnut paste or peanut butter in a bowl, add 300 ml (1/2 pint) 1 1/4 cups of the stock or water and the tomato puree and blend together to make a smooth paste.
  • Spoon the nut mixture into a saucepan and add the onion, ginger, thyme, bay leaf, salt, chilli and the remaining stock.
  • Heat gently until simmering, then cook for 1 hour, stirring from time to time to prevent the nut mixture sticking.
  • Add the white yam, cook for a further 10 minutes, and then add the okra, if using, and simmer until both are tender. Serve at once.
