It is a great day in this part of the world. I hope you had a great night. I am Kehinde Micheal and my username is @msquaretwins here on this great platform. I want to believe that you have been enjoying the steemit engagement contest. For me, I have been enjoying the contest. I made my first post yesterday in colombiaoriginal community, and I must tell you that it has been awesome. Today, in steemfoods community, I will be making a post on Practical Recipe for making one of my favourite food. Therefore, I want you to come along with me as I give step by step procedure of making this food.
In the next paragraph, I will be discussing detailed steps I followed to prepare rice and stew. So let's take a look at the steps below.
Practical Recipe of Preparing Rice, Stew and Chicken
The first step is measuring the rice I prepared. I am a man of details and I just don't cook, I measure the quantity of food to be cooked. Here I took three cup of rice. Although I bought a Congo of Rice which is about $2 or 5 STEEM. A congo of rice contains 10 cups. So, out of the 10 cups, I took tree cups which cost about 1.7 STEEM. The picture of a cup is seen in the picture uploaded below.
I lighted up the gas. I used 3kg gas cylinder. The colour of the gas as seen in the screenshot below is magenta.
Then I took a pot, washed it thoroughly and put about 2 litres of water inside the pot and then put it on fire as seen in the screenshot below. Then I allowed the water to boil. The water reached the boiling point in less than 5 minutes I put the pot on fire.
After the water has boiled, I washed the rice thoroughly. I washed it 4 times and the picture attached below shows the process of washing when I was preparing the food.
Then after I finished washing the rice, I poured it on the pot. The picture attached below shows how I poured the rice on the pot on fire.
Then after I finished pouring the rice, I added about 3/4 of table spoon salt on it as seen in the picture uploaded below. Then I cooked the rice for about 35 minutes and the rice was done.
The cooking of the rice took about 40 minutes in general. Then I poured it inside the filtering basket uploaded below so as to filter water from the rice.
While allowing the rice to filter, I poured the vegetable on fire and I allow it to hit for about 2 minutes and then poured the raw stew. The raw stew contained "Rodo"(hot pepper), Tomatoes, "Tantanse" (Not hot pepper) and onion. The cost of every thing is about 3 STEEM . The vegetable oil I bought is 75cl which is about $2 or 5 STEEM, and I used about 1/4 of the 75cl of oil (about 1.25 STEEM cost of oil) to prepare my stew. I cooked the stew for about 20 minutes.
The picture uploaded below is a picture of a fried chicken. I have prepared this chicken yesterday. I bought 1kg of chicken from nearby market. 1kg of chicken cost about $4 or 10 STEEM. It was cut into 8 pieces. But out of the 8 pieces, just 4 is remaining and so I snapped the four and attached it to this post.
I fried the chicken using vegetable oil and I friend it twice since the pot I used could not contain the chicken at once.
Then I dished the food as seen in the picture uploaded below. Below I have my rice, stew and chicken prepared ready to eat. 😀
Then, as instructed, I wrote the date I did the practical recipe, the hast tag instructed to include and my username on a piece of paper and I put it beside the food and took a picture of them together as seen in the image below.
This is me with a selfie picture below holding the food I just prepared.
In this post, I have discussed step by step practical recipe of preparing white rice and stew. I did not only discuss the practical recipe but also mentioned the cost of the raw material used. I hope you find this content very useful. Thank you for reading
