Uha leaves
Crayfish (blended)
Achi or Ukpo (I use cornflour)
Assorted Meats
Stock Fish
Dry Fish
Snail (I cant get them here so I leave them out and make up by adding lots of dry fish)
Peppers
Salt
2 ogiri
knorr cubes (six)
palm oil


Directions

Precook meat, season to taste
When your meat is ready,

Add crayfish, assorted fish and soup thickener and little bit palm oil to a pot of water and cook til it looks thick

When you have achieved your desired consistencie, add the Uha to the pot and cook for another 3-5 minutes, and disolve ogiri wraps in some water and add to the pot. I then cook it for a little bit more (about ten mins or so)

I serve it with Ola Ola pounded yam (its so nice)

Not sure if this is even the correct way,

Ingredients:
Egusi(melon)
Ukpo or Achi(soup thickeners)
Achara(bamboo but the softer one)I don't know what they call it here
Ngara azu(small dry fish)
Ayiya(crayfish)
Azu okpo(dry fish)
Okporoko (stock fish)
Aku agbo(melon balls/biscuit)
Mgbe(kind of seafood, don’t know the English name)
Assorted anu (meat), also assorted bush meat and dry meat (kai to die for)
Manu nri (Palm oil)
Ukazi (shredded)

First cook your okporoko and other hard meat like cow leg and ox tail. Boil meat and azu okpo; add pepper and oil as the meat is boiling. Watch the tenderness, you do not want it to be soggy.
After add ukpo or achi…I prefer ukpo because of the taste. Allow few minutes and add ayiya and ngara azu and let it boil…. allow few minutes to boil, and then taste the sauce/soup to see if it is done. Also the color and the thickness of the broth should let you know if the ingredients are done.
At this time your soup should be slightly thick but not too thick like Eguisi soup…be careful adding Egusi at this time because it also serves as soup thickener.
Allow it to boil for few minutes then add the aku agbo and achara…few more minutes for it to simmer then add Ukazi leaves.

hey what can i substitute the achara with? i dont think i can find that here, is it a must have? also what about this melon biscuit what is that? would egusi alone not be ok instead of melon biscuits?
Re: Recipe For Ukazi And Uha(ora) Soup by Leilah(f): 1:34am On Aug 07, 2008
also, this mgbe is that sea snails? is there anything else i can use? maybe mgbe is periwinkles??

what is Oha in english? e.g like Ugwu is Pumkin leaves in English.
Re: Recipe For Ukazi And Uha(ora) Soup by Leilah(f): 4:57pm On Dec 23, 2008
From my research they are yam leaves

Leilah: From my research they are yam leaves
Omg, where did you do this research please? How on earth can Oha be yam leaves. Please don't make anyone to go and cook yam leaves. Oha grows on its own tree. Most times the trees are big and tall with lots of tiny leaves (oha). Just followed this post from google, I know its old but someone else my see it and cook yam leaves

Wow, your oha soup looks very delicious, wish I could take it out of the screen and eat it. I especially like dry fish in oha. I've been cooking the soup for years now, so I'm kinda a pro in that aspect but I'd check out your blog for other foods.
