Wash the meat and boil, add onion,seasoning cubes etc to the meat and boil till it is almost done. Wash your stockfish and put it in hot water to soften it.
Cut your periwinkle, I personally prefer it to be in its shell, not a fan of the ones already removed it shells. Cut the periwinkle half and half and throwaway the tail part if the shells ,then wash thoroughly to avoid dirt’s because periwinkle shells are always dirty,wash like 5-7 times before cooking.
Remove your snails from its shells and wash with alome until they are clean and neat devoid of gums.
Pour the sliced waterleaf into a pot, pour all the ingredients also including salt and maggi etc. Now place the pot on fire,add oil and allow to boil. Please don’t put water in anyway because the waterleaf has its own water. Keep stirring and cook for about 10-15 minutes and your waterleaf soup is ready.
Waterleaf soup is full of all kinds of vitamins and calcium.
