Egg Sauce is just one of many egg recipes existing in Nigeria. Egg Sauce is made with Eggs, Tomatoes, Pepper, Onions, Vegetable oil and Maggi. You can actually add a handful of pumpkin leaves (ugu) but that’s optional. This sauce in Nigeria is usually served with yam. I seldom see people serve with rice, it’s happens but not often.
Complete ingredients for yam Sauce
*1 cube of Maggi
*Salt to taste
*2 spoons of sliced green peppers(optional).
Slice your Tomatoes, Onion, and Pepper, you can easily do this with a sharp Knife and a chopping board.
Set your frying pan on the Heat and add 200ml of Oil (Vegetable or Olive oil) allow one minute before adding the sliced Tomatoes/onions/Pepper. Allow this to fry for 10_15 minutes. Remember to always stir, you don’t want to end up with a burnt Tomatoes.
Once it’s adequately fried, add salt to taste, add Maggi seasoning cube.
Beat the egg in a separate plate. Add a pinch of salt to it and then pour on the frying tomatoes/onion/pepper combination. Allow a minute and then stir. Try to break crumbs into smaller size you can sprinkle a handful of pumpkin (ugu)leaves if you like.
That’s just how to make Egg Sauce yam. I did say that you can also serve this sauce with rice, beans, or even Spaghetti.
