Spicy Gizzard Mix (Gizdodo)

Hi guys, how are you all doing?  Christmas is fast approaching and everyone is looking to get last minute deals.

As for me I am looking forward to sharing various recipes with you all to treat your family and guests.

Today’s recipe is popular at parties and at home. Who ever thought of this is a genius I tell you!

Let’s get started.


  • 4 large Plantains
    1 large Onions
    1 teaspoon of chilli flakes
    2 scotch bonnet peppers
    1 Red pepper
    1 green pepper
    1 can of Plum tomatoes
    1/2 teaspoon of purpose seasoning
    1/2 a teaspoon of chicken seasoning
  • 1 knorr cube
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of curry
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of thyme
    1 cup of oil. (for frying the plantain)


Chopping board
Medium sized pot
Wooden spoon
Baking tray

Prep time: 10 minutes

cooking time 50 minutes

total time: 1 hour

Blend the plum tomatoes and scotch bonnet peppers. Cook until the water dries up.

Chop and finely dice the peppers and onions, set aside.
Peel and cut the plantain into small bite sized pieces.

Wash and remove any dry skin from the gizzard. Depending on the size, cut it into two as it has the tendency to shrink whilst cooking.

Add it to the pot, season sparsely with onion powder, ginger and garlic. Add one teaspoon of all purpose seasoning and cook for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, the gizzard should be cooked, remove from the pot, drain the stock.

Add the gizzard to the baking tray and grill for 10 minutes. until its brown and crispy (as if it were fried)


Next heat up the oil, and then add all the diced plaintain to the pot and fry until it is nicely brown.


By now the gizzard should be crisp. Add it to the fried dodo and mix for about a minute.

Next add the cooked pepper, the remaining seasoning, and cook uninterrupted for 10 minutes.

Finally now add the diced peppers to it and cook for 2 minutes. ( I prefer it crunchy) but you can cook it for longer if you prefer.

That’s it, you are done
Well done

That’s it from Me
