Ingredients :

3 tbsp pure groundnut paste or peanut butter

6.25 cups 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 chili powder

8 oz white yam, diced

10 small okras, trimmed (optional)

Method :

Place the groundnut paste or peanut butter in a bowl, add 1.25 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, chili 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.
