@ me? and are you serious?? i can for your once or twice soup if you serious.
|Re: Igbo Soups by omoge25(f): 5:09am On May 20, 2007|
omoge, abeg how do you prepare onugbu (bitterleaf) soup, the type my friend makes she puts garlic and peanut butter in it. sometime dey tell me say that is not the naija way of making it. I might be wrong
|Re: Igbo Soups by omoge(f): 8:35am On May 22, 2007|
I don't add Pnut to my onugbu soup. My ingredients are
water, pepper, oil, fresh fish (Tilapia or Salmon), onion, salt, bitter leaf, maggi, crayfish and shrimp (sometimes)
if bitter leaf is dried, soak and then blend to a very smooth paste and set aside.
Add water in a pot,
add the cleaned tilapia or salmon
Add blended pepper and onion, then palm oil and let it boil
Then add your blended bitter leaf
Add maggi and salt (according to your taste) and crayfish
cook for some minutes more until thicken
(i usually love mine to be thick and not watery)
eat with semo, farina, fufu pyam or eba
(i eat mine with Semo, because their garri here is )
Maybe that's your friend's way of making hers.
|Re: Igbo Soups by omoge25(f): 10:28pm On May 22, 2007|
Omoge thanks for the directions and ingredients, we will try it this way.
|Re: Igbo Soups by ikamefa(f): 4:52am On May 23, 2007|
@omoge thank you oh
i will go and try this at home
but where will i get bitter leaf from?
quick question is there anything you can substitute for bitter leaf?
|Re: Igbo Soups by omoge25(f): 5:36am On May 23, 2007|
you should try your local naija or african store, i dey houston so naija stores plenty, we get fresh and dry ones. But if you dont have one close by, i know ppl that sub spinach, or more bitter type of leaves like swiss chard, mustard green. another alternative is to do like my cousin wey dey thailand order from online.
that site sells african/naija stuff and there are others like them out there too.
|Re: Igbo Soups by ikamefa(f): 5:41am On May 23, 2007|
another omoge? " " omoge plenty for nairaland oh
thanks you jare! we've got African stores here too
but they are just too far from me and i don't want to go thru the hassle of looking for another one
thanks for the link and the tip it might just come in handy!
|Re: Igbo Soups by omoge(f): 4:57pm On May 23, 2007|
yeah you can find bitter leaf in one of those Africa store, but I don't buy from their stores. Once I came across fresh bitter leaf in an African store. I was so excited and bought it. On getting home, i first tasted it (like we do after washing bitter leaf to make sure it has a bit bitter left), my goodness!!!! it was like the bitter leaf was not washed at allll, SO Bitter that my head moved on tasting it, I threw up. I had to throw everything away in trash cuz i don't have the time to rewash them. So make sure you don't buy much at first. Buy 1 pack then taste it when you get home to make sure it is not VERY bitter before you get more that will be enough for you ofe onugbu.
Same thing happened when i was trying to help a family to make egusi. she and hubby tried it and it was sooooooooo bitter, like it was not washed at all but pounded and packaged. they had to throw all the bitter leaf away.
I really don't know what some of these stores sell abroad.
Right now I use the ones brought from home by trusted friend and my mom.
bitter leaf is supposed to have a lil bitter left not one that taste so bitter like it's unwashed.
Hopefully you will get the right one in the website provided
You will enjoy your ofe onugbu with the right bitterleaf,
|Re: Igbo Soups by omoge25(f): 12:10pm On May 29, 2007|
That is GREAT advice, thankyou o. I will get small first, I know someone that grows it in there backyard but picking it, preparing it, its just too much work for me.
