Today i want to quickly drop my egusi soup recipe here.
You know when you eat a particular food for so long and you begin to hate it at some point.
That was my case with egusi soup,when I was abroad,I ate egusi soup so much coz it was easily accesible but still expensive tho that I hated it
But this new(yea its new to me) method has revived my love for egusi soup..
I know most of you already know about this method but for those of us that don’t,this post is for you
THINGS THAT I USE
Tomatoes (really?? Yes,I never knew too)
BEFORE YOU START COOKING:
* Wash all your meat, stockfish with plenty water and salt
* Grind the egusi and crayfish separately.
* Blend your tomatoes, fresh pepper
* With plenty of water and salt,i wash and cut the ugu and uziza leave. Put them in separate sieves to drain out all the water as much as possible.
like I told you in my previous post on my edikai ikong soup recipe, I do not squeeze or wring my vegetables like some recipes suggest because I would lose some nutrients by doing that
HOW I PREPARE IT:
I added the meat,stockfish, dried fish, smoked fish, in a pot with water and steam until cooked
When its cooked I bring it down
In an empty pot,I put my palm oil and allow to bleach for a while
then I put my blended tomatoes and pepper and fry it until its dry
Followed by my egusi,I continue frying for about 3-5minutes. Be careful not to burn your egusi in the process
I then pour my cooked meat,fish into it
Stir and Add my crayfish
Cover the pot and allow it to boil when it well cooked
I put my vegetables (ugh n uziza) allow to cook for 2-3minutes
Stir the contents of the pot very well and turn off the heat.
Voila food is ready
Happy cooking….don’t forget to thank me lerra
