2

Hello Everyone!

How are we doing?

Here’s a video clip of how I made this egusi soup.

Below is also a pictorial presentation, just incase your MB isn’t smiling at you. 😍

Ingredients:

Egusi

 

Akparata (Afzelia Africana)

 

Pepper

 

Maggi

 

Palm oil

 

Ogiri Okpei (Castor Seed)

 

Crayfish

 

Salt

 

Ugu (or saint leaf or any vegetable of your choice)

Ugu

 

Meat

 

 

Do not forget your stock fish like I did when I went to the market!

***Winks***

  • Cooking
  • Pound your pepper
  • Add the crayfish to the grounded pepper and pound
  • Add the ogiri Okpei to the grounded pepper and crayfish and pound
  • Pour the egusi to a bowl, add a little water, mix and cut into small balls
  • Wash and per-boil your meat
  • Slice your bunch ugu leaf
  • On a clean pot add the amount of palm oil that will be enough for your food.
  • Add Akparata and stir
  • Add your balls of egusi and fry a little bit, add water.
  • When it’s boiling, add the ingredients (meat, magi, salt, (pounded pepper, crayfish, ogiri okpei)) and allow to boil more.
  • Use your spoon to smash/break the egusi balls and allow to boil more.
  • Add your vegetable, allow to simmer.
  • YOUR EGUSI SOUP IS READY!
