-Add an onion (shredded) into the hot oil, fry a bit and then add the blended tomatoes and & peppers blend.  

-Cook until the mixture loses its sour taste, or until you begin to see the oil rise to the top.

-Add the garlic powder, bouillon cubes (Maggi /knorr cubes), ground crayfish, and salt to taste. You can also add more seasoning if you like. 

-Mix thoroughly, cover, and leave to cook for 2 mins.

-Add the fried meat, mix well, cover the pot, simmer for 5 mins and put off the heat.
