Who Own Egusi And Pounded Yam by gregyboy(m): 12:28am On Aug 17, 2018
It has been a matter of debate on the origin of eguisi nd pounded yam it is not of outermost important but history must be told .it is seen by men to have different origin .it is a well respected food in the southern part of nigeria but most people dont know the origin..it has been proven factually that that pounded yam(iyan) and egusi(ohue) trace its origin to edo state same as other soap like bitter leaf .it was documented by europeans when they visited benin this type of food and how they give it to thier gods in thier festival period ..the igue festival is a festival that celebrate new yam in edo
This yams are pounded and eating along with eguisi soup..it is believed that this food spread over other vassal state under the benin Kingdom due to benin influence it was a food that Duke's couldnt do with during festive period such as the igue festival which have different names in different names in different state

Trying to trace pounded yam down to a particular ethnic group would be a laughable venture. Pounding of yams probably pre-dates all the modern ethnic groups in West Africa.

Ethnic origin of egusi soup is perhaps possible to trace, but forget about pounded yam.

It doesn't matter how u cook it .if urs is the d best it doesn't ulter it origin coming from elsewhere i guess edo had influence in some igbos state before d advent of d british i bet d onitscha celebrate d new yam festivals also with d aniomas in delta state .igobos have thier own indigenous soup definitely not egusi .religiously eguisi nd pounded had been offered to Benin deities over time nd it was prepared traditionally dats y benin has only 3 soup easily found in thier region waterleaf soup,bitter leaf soap,nd egusi
