Step 2: Time to prepare the ‘secret’ ingredient. There are two methods of doing this;
Method 1: Using an old frying pan, roast the Ehuru seeds (stirring constantly) till you can smell it. Another way to know that it is OK is to take one of the seeds and try to remove the outer membrane. If the membrane comes off easily, then the Ehuru is done. Peel off the skin and grind in a dry mill.
Step 3: Cut the onions into tiny pieces – Set aside. Wash and pick the scent leaves and utazi leaves, slice into smaller pieces – Set aside.
Step 4: Place the pieces of fish in a pot, add the chopped onion and pour water just enough to cover the fish, add the crushed seasoning and bring to the boil. Once it starts to boil add the ground pepper, ehuru, crayfish, salt to taste and continue cooking for about 5 mins. Once the catfish is done, add the chopped leaves. Leave to simmer for about 3 minutes and it’s ready!
