Ayamase Sauce (Green Ofada Sauce)

Ayamase sauce which is often served Ofada rice (native brown rice) is said to be native to Ogun state, there are two tales as to how the name is derived. One story says it was the secret recipe of Mrs Mase who lived in Ijebu made with green peppers. It is suggested that it was called Obe Aya Mase (soup of Mase’s wife) and it gained such popularity it became a household dish. Another story has it that “Ayamase” means “Wife do not cook” because it was such an expensive pot of soup to make, the wife might spend the entire household allowance to prepare it. https://ounjealadun.com/2022/09/30/ayamase-sauce-green-ofada-sauce/
