Pepper Stew (Obe Ata Din Din) is a popular Nigerian fried pepper stew. It is very common in local restaurants or roadside food kiosks and is usually served alongside fried plantain.
– 10 tatashe peppers
– 3 cooking spoons sunflower oil (vegetable oil)
– 1 tablespoon red palm oil
– 2 medium onions

– 3 pieces dry fish (mangala)
– 1 disc ogiri okpei (iru, dawa dawa, locust beans)
– 1 handful crayfish
– 1 tablespoon Nigerian curry powder
