kunletiwoo: Added a tin tomatoes to the “Egusi” soup I cooked while in school. So irritating to me after cooking. I was later told by a girl in ma lodge that it was because of the tomatoes. lol

I hardly cook egusi soup without tin tomatoes and if i do u will lick ur fingers.

I wouldn't call this a blunder more like a very stupid mistake.

Mom was cooking egusi soup with all sorts of assorted meats, she was running late for work that afternoon so she told me and my sister to finish up the soup for her. All that was left to add is iru (locust bean) and palm oil.

Hmmm I felt so lazy to get up from my bed that day so I scooped 5 spoonfuls of iru into a container, poured water to rinse the iru from dirts and sand..

As i was too lazy, i just used another spoon to start scooping the iru into the egusi soup. Infact the remaining water from the iru water, I poured evrything into the pot.

After few more minutes egusi was done. Mom came back from work that night and I prepared poundo yam for her and the entire house. Most people in my family tends to chew rolled/lumpy egusi so while we were eating everybody started biting on salt. I nearly died that day, I was quiet and mom was like how come this soup is full of sand, I was like I don't know maybe it's from the spinach you washed mom grin grin cheesy

Days later I couldn't take the guilt evrytime I see her in pain while eating the egusi so I finally confessed. Thank God I was far away from her otherwise I would have received hot slap. cheesy

Blue moon: this one is about 3 months ago. i can make moi-moi but on this particular day, i forgot to buy tomato and red peppers to give it color. My roommate wasn't around and her phone was switched off so didn't want to use her own before problem start. so guess what i used? palm oil o! i poured it into the moimoi mixture feeling cool with myself. made my lovely foil packs. poured the mixture. when it cooked it looked wonderful, but the taste eh? when i took a bite. i abandoned the whole pot o! straight into the trash can.

Sorry tomatoes are nt used in moi moi. And there is nothing bad in using palm oil instead of ground oil. So something else must have given it a awful taste

Mine was the day I added more oil to the egg I was frying.......I then discovered it was kerosene after dishing it.
