How To Prepare Nigerian Gizdodo

Gizdodo is a traditional Nigerian dish consisting of chicken gizzards and plantains (dodo), hence the name. In order to prepare it, boiled gizzard pieces are deep-fried and mixed with fried plantains.

The combination is then drizzled over with a sauce consisting of tomatoes, green and red bell peppers, and onions.

In Nigeria, gizdodo is a staple at parties, served as an appetizer or the main meal, and it’s often accompanied by other dishes on the side, such as jollof rice.
