Quick question!

How do I make ofe akwu/banga with this concentrated kernel in a jar? Lately, my appetite has been flying through the roof so my cravings are wild. (Can I do without ogiri, dawadawa & okpe? Because my sense of smell is crazy too).

I also need recipes for Ji mmiri oku (yam pepper soup). Thanks.

ANAMBRA CHIC hereeeeeeeeee!Tomato in ofe akwu, my grandma will go crazy if she hears this one, she doesn't even believe in maggi, she thinks crayfish and dawadawa should be it!

Ingredients

Akwu or Banga or Ghana Best

Dawadawa(its like iru but it is not)

Crayfish

Assorted meat and fishes of your choices

Scent Leaf or Nchanwu(sorry abt the spelling)

Ugu or Pumpkin Leaf or Spinach

Spices like maggi, salt to taste, pepper

NB:Dont put too much onions because it tends to make the soup taste like u added sugar in it

Okay start with cooking and mashing the palm kernel thingee(i.e the akwu or banga) when u finish take the water and spread the akwu under the sun( u can use this to drink garri later, heheeee).Okay pour the water of the akwu in the pot then put it on fire and leave it until it thickens up,then add your meat or if u are using those assorted meat that take long to cook then put them in the akwu water then wait till the soup thickens up. here u can add onions and maggi. after the soup thickens a bit then add your grounded crayfish and dawadawa, after 10-20mins, add scent leaf then wait for 5mins then add ugu, then your other seasoning or spices to taste.

but if u are using Ghana Best or something similar

cook your assorted meat and when its a almost tender add grounded crayfish and dawadawa and add the ghana best , then wait and check if the soup is thick if it is, add your scent leaf then wait for 5mins add ugu and then add your seasoning or spices

the odd or weird thing about this soup is that after u refrigerate or save it for another time, to make it taste fresh, add onions and fresh ugu or spinach, i know i said little or no onions the first time, here u add any amount u want

sorry if u dont understand, this is my first time of writing how to cook anything

topic,

fortunately i just prepared it this past weekend and i happen to be from Delta state

Ok.

The Ingredients u need are,

1. Palm kernel nuts (the one used in making banga soup, we call it banga)

2. Fresh Pepper

3. very little quantity of tomatoes(the tomatoes should be very small other wise it would come out too swt)

4. tatashe

5. Onions

6. Scent leave (popularly called efirin)

7. A little crayfish

8. Ur meat, u can use any type, beaf, goatmeat, dry fish, liver, kpomo, dry shrimps and whatever in meat for.

9. maggi.

10. salt to taste.

Preparation.

wash ur meat in a pot and and simmer (whatever u r using) adding sliced onions, maggi, salt. Allow it to boil till a little tender.

wash ur banga thoroughly to remove sand and place in a pot. add water and boil.

grind ur tomatoes, f/pepper, onions, tatashe and set aside.

De bone ur fish and grind ur crayfish, set aside.

When the banga is soft enough from boiling, remove it from the pot and pound in a mortar. strain the liquid in a pot. U have to be very careful here cause of the shaft and those little black things from the head of the palm kernel. After starining the liquid in a pot keep it aside.

Next make a stew with the blended tomatoes and f/pepper, make sure u use very little quantity of g/oil, i mean very little. After the stew is cooked u can begin the preparation of the banga that was set aside.

Place the Banga liquid on fire and allow to boil, slice onions in it, add ur crayfish, allow to boil very well till when its almost getting thick, add ur washed fish, kpomo and others, wit meat. allow to boil a little say 5mins,then add the cooked stew in it, taste for maggi, salt. if o.k, last thing u add is ur scent leaves, let the leave be much to bring out the flavour, and the leaves should be chopped, not diced.allow to boil say for 2mins then set down.

u really have an idea on how to do it but u dont use tomatoes for the ofe akwu otherwise u call it ofe akwu- tomatoes.do it with just palm fruits and u have the real taste.
