* A small bunch of Nigerian Pumpkin leaves or 6 cubes Frozen

* Spinach or Bitterleaf

*2 tablespoons ground crayfish

* 2 big stock cubes

1.Start cooking the shaki first as it is the toughest meat in the bunch. Always keep water to the same level as the contents of the pot and top it up as you cook.

2.When the shaki starts to curl, add the dry fish and stock fish. When the shaki is almost done, add beef and stock cubes and cook till all the meat and fish are well done. Add the crayfish, salt, and pepper, cover and cook till it boils.
3. Transfer the meat and fish to another pot or container leaving the stock in the pot.
Add the ground groundnuts and stir very well till there are no lumps. Reduce the heat to a very low temperature and start cooking.
4. Stir every 5 minutes and top up the water if necessary. This mixture burns easily so, watch it closely and stir as often as necessary.
5. Cook till a thin film of clear oil appears on the surface. This should take about 15 minutes. Add palm oil and stir very well.
6. Add the beef and fish, stir and cook on low heat till it boils. For those who prefer their groundnut soup without vegetables, the soup is ready at this time. If you prefer it with vegetables then add the vegetables, stir and leave to simmer. Stir again and it is done.
7. Enjoy with any of your swallow.
