Just decided to give you something light and nice for the weekend. Yeah, you are welcome. lol. Gizdodo as named by Nigerians is a Nigerian meal made with mainly Gizzard and Plantain. The Giz in the name comes from gizzard while the dodo is plantain in south-western Nigeria. Enjoy!


  1. Onions
  2. Red bell pepper
  3. Tomatoes
  4. Hot pepper
  5. Plantain
  6. Gizzard
  7. Seasoning
  8. Spices: curry, garlic, thyme, and salt. You can use whatever spice that you prefer

Step one: wash, add spices/seasoning and cook the gizzard till it’s soft.

Step two: wash, chop and fry the plantain

Step three: fry the already-cooked gizzard

Step four: blend the onions, bell pepper, hot pepper and tomatoes together using the grating button on the blender. This gives the final result a not-so smooth texture.

Step five: with a little vegetable oil in a hot frying pan, add the blended mixture, stir, add spices to your taste and allow it fry for 15-20 minutes.

Step six: add the already fried gizzard to the fried tomatoes mixture, stir and allow it simmer for 5 minutes.

Step seven: add the already fried plantain, stir and allow it simmer for 3-5 minutes.

And Gizdodo is ready! Enjoy with a glass of chilled juice. lol.

UPDATE: Feedback from the blog readers. I am so excited! Keep them coming!
