Ata Lilo
Recipe Category: Stews
Serves: ¾ - 1 jug
The Nigerian Pepper base that comprises mostly of tomatoes, tatashe, ata rodo, and onions.
  • 2 pieces of medium red onions
  • 5 pieces of tomatoes - or 1 can of plum tomatoes
  • 3 pieces of ata rodo
  • 3 - 4 pieces of tatashe
  • Water
  • This will serve for at least ¾ of a standard blender jug full
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender, and puree till smooth or a rough blend.
  2. Use either of the 3 cheat methods I listed in this post, or go the old fashioned way of boiling.
This recipe is for a standard base of Ata Lilo, that will work in most dishes, but for some specialty dishes, I vary the the quantity of tomatoes, or take it out entirely, add more tatashe, or more ata rodo to make it more spicy, and so on and so forth.
