My grandma cooked with that.
Orumba/Aguata local govt people of Anambra state call it ibaa. It's similar to ogbono seeds, open the hard,woody exocarp and the edible dicotyledous endocarp will be revealed.

Like ogbono, crush or blend into fine powder.

I think it's also called mkpuru achi.

In my dialect, its called ORURU.

Its very hard and takes time to cook. Its used as a soup thickener. Like achi or egusi but its a whole soup of its own.
I don't like the soup because even though it tastes sweeter the next day and can rarely get spoilt, it gets dark. So, two days after making the soup even if you put it in the fridge, its as black as sheet and not good to the eyes.

Cc Odumchi, what is this called in your dialect?

I actually didn't recognize it when I first saw it. The closest thing I know to it in both resemblance and use is achi.

Called "ukpo" in my native igbo language.
Used to thicken soup and very delicious if used in preparing egusi and ukazi soup. chai! *licks lips*

But its broken into pieces and cooked for a long time because its very hard before pounding and using.

In Ekiti, it is called ipe. In my childhood days in my house, we play with it by aranging it in different patterns and your opponent tries to target any one of it just like in bowling game. Mehn,it was very interesting as onlookers who are also members of the family cheer their favourite player.we used to play the game in the sitting room which has tiles on the floor. The seed rolls better on tlles.

That's ibaba (Akwa ibom), nowadays easy achi has replaced the good old ibaba. You had to break the pod open, boil the flesh inside, pound adding a little oil before using it for mkpafere.
