To make Nigerian garden egg stew, the first step is to gather the necessary ingredients. These include:

  • 10 garden eggs
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 2 scotch bonnet peppers
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons of dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 pound of chicken or any other protein of choice


  • Wash the garden eggs, peel them, and cut them into small pieces. Next, dice the tomatoes, onions, and bell pepper, and chop the scotch bonnet peppers.
  • In a large pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the diced onions and sauté until they are translucent. Then, add the diced tomatoes and bell pepper and cook until the mixture is well combined.
  • Add the chopped scotch bonnet peppers, thyme, curry powder, and salt to the pot and stir to combine. 
  • Once the mixture has simmered for about 5 minutes, add the chicken or any other protein of choice and cook until it is browned on all sides.
  • Add the garden egg pieces to the pot and stir to combine. Then, add enough water to cover the ingredients, reduce the heat to medium-low, and let the stew simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the garden eggs are tender and the sauce has thickened.
  • Once the garden egg stew is ready, it can be served hot with a side of rice, yam, or plantains.
