Honestly, if you only try one recipe this month, make it this one. The flavor combination is amazing! I typically serve mine with either stewed meat or peppered meat
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 can coconut milk (400ml)
My brand of choice is by Thai Kitchen
  • 2 knorr cubes
  • Salt – to taste
  • Ground pepper – to taste
  • 4 heaped tablespoons crayffish (divided)
  • 3 cooking spoons Nigerian stew base
  • 3 cups rice – washed


  1. Place a pot with a tight fitting lead on medium heat, heat up the coconut oil. Add in sliced onions and fry until translucent and fragrant.
  2. Add in stew base, Knorr, salt, pepper, half crayfish, coconut milk and 1 cup of water. Cover and allow to simmer on low-medium heat for 15 minutes


  1. Uncover the pot and stir in rice. increase heat to medium. Leave to come to a boil (when you see bubbles ontop of the rice). Reduce heat to low-medium and cover the pot tightly.
  2. Cook for 15 minutes (if using basmati) or for 25 minutes (if using parboiled rice)
  3. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork then add in the left over crayfish (This is the absolute best part, it is amazing!!
  4. Serve with your choice of protein
