Urhobo Owofibo (oil Soup) Aka Owo Soup by AmakaOne(f): 10:30am On Sep 22, 2008
Got this recipe from a friend and I tried it on Saturday.

Starch (Usi) about half a big spoon (the spoon that u use to serve rice)
Garri
Akau (potash I think that's how the spell it)
Lime/ Lemon Juice
Native salt
Meat (this can be from cow foot to beef u can even add snail)
periwinkle (optional)
Smoked fish (that dark brown round fish)
palm oil
Maggi cubes
Rodo
one big cooking spoon of ground cray fish


everyone has their own way to cook this


*Wash your dry fish very well as there will be sand in this
Clean the Periwinkle with lime Juice

* With the blunt end of a knife, top and tail the periwinkles and wash thoroughly

*Boil your meat, add Maggi cubes and pepper (ie for a standard family lets say 5 about 3 cubes should do it, its up to u really use ur discretion)

*When your meat is almost cooked remove it from the stock and keep separately.

* Add water to the stock so it can be at least 3 quarters of the pot and let it heat up.

*Once it has heated add palm oil into the pot. Once the palm oil is in the pot pour garri into a plate add cold water to the garri and stir then pour into the pot always use the wooden spoon to stir (as if you are drinking garri with ground nut)

*Leave to cook for about 15-20mins

*After 15-20mins add crayfish

*Once you have washed the fish break the fish inside the pot and add your meat.

*If you are using periwinkle wash this and boil it separately with water for like 10mins when you are also boiling your meat

*Once this is done add it to the mixture

*Add Maggi to give taste

*pour Starch (Usi) into a deep plate with the native Salt (the colour of this salt is grey) and Akau (potash) and add water and mix into a light paste.

*Pour the paste into the pot and start to stir the soup like your life depends on it (not to fast or hard but not too slow to avoid lumps)

make sure that whilst you are doing this it is on low heat.

* You need to be careful because the Akau inside the pot of soup will start to foam so, at this stage its not about leaving the soup cos there is something on TV. You need to watch it all the time.

*Once you have poured the starch mixture inside the pot make sure you do not cover the soup as it will spoil

*leave for another 10-15mins and it should be done

***BUT MAKE SURE THAT WHEN IT IS DONE U DO NOT COVER SOUP.

*Once soup is finish eat it with yam or plantain or with Usi.

The lime/ Lemon juice is for cleaning the periwinkle and not to be added to the soup.

Rodo = Ata rodo/ pepper/ Scotch Bonet

@ Amakaone

You know I am lover not a fighter but when the situation calls for it you have to fight for your woman. Chivalry is not dead where I come from.
The village elders are also waiting for me to come back home for the coronation so all I need is a queen! I have been to Queens NY but no luck so you are my last chance otherwise they will give the crown to another family. I know you dont want this on your conscience. grin grin grin

Try this technique next time you are making stew.

Add a little oil to be pot and pan fry your seasoned meats , add the rest of the seasoning, your onion and garlic after you have some color on the meat then fry a little longer, you should have some brown bits on the bottom, add water and cook normally. This gives a very flavorful broth and the meat comes out really moist as well because the pan frying. This is a french technique and you see it a lot in cajun cooking as well. Finger licking good. I will be posting my Nigerian influenced chinese fried rice soon that has been a favorite at a lot of parties soon.

Just trying to show Amaka my culinary skills amongst my many talents ( apparently one of those talents requires me to sit in front of a computer screen all day)  grin grin grin

Amaka lie ur own make i lie my own finish. Amaka good thing you do not blog again. Stop stealing people's recipe. Why hasn't the admin put you in your place. At least if u take it make reference to whom u stole it from. U do this all the time. U don't know how to cook this soup. After stealing it you modified it. A true urhobo will tell u u got it wrong. Tomatoes in urhobo Oghwo soup. Since when? Stop stealing o stop taking recipe from people's blog.
Re: Urhobo Owofibo (oil Soup) Aka Owo Soup by Sammiejo: 5:37pm On Dec 15, 2012
Which Owo soup be this? Igbo own?
Rodo? Lime/lemon juice? Garri and starch together in one pot?
I respect . PEOPLE WHAT EVER YOU GET FROM USING THIS RECIPE IS DEFINITELY NOT OGHWO/OWHO/OWO/OWHOFIGBO/OWHOEPHRI

Tomatoes are regularly used in Benin! ...not starch. She also indicated that she got it from a friend, so what's the deal with "stealing"? Please...

Yes, the combination of starch, garri and potash is errm, interesting but unnecessary.
