How To Make Ofe Oha (oha Soup) by pocohantas(f): 6:20pm On Jul 04, 2020
Oha soup known as ofe oha is a soup native to the Eastern people of Nigeria.

I once saw someone post a poison as oha soup, please that is not our oha, lol. Another sister complained the leaves were hard, fresh oha leaves are not hard.

— Oha is traditionally thickened with cocoyam(a), but you can use ofo or achi(b).

— Where I come from, the base is palm fruit extract (a), but you can also use palm oil(b).

So, for the purpose of variety/convenience/availability in cooking, wherever you see (a), feel free to substitute with (b).

A quick guide to knowing your fresh oha, they look limp.

So, I will advise Pic 1, never Pic 2.

Oha is my best soup anyday anytime .

Poco I noticed you did not use ogili for your oha soup.Anambra people will likely always make oha soup with Ogili and Ede(cocoyam) cheesy cheesy

When you introduce the ogili into the soup the whole area will scatter. cheesy cheesy cheesy

Check again, ogiri is there in my ingredients and was added in my step 6. My head didn’t scatter though, at least na me still type the thread.

Ogiri has to be one overrated shii or maybe it is an acquired taste. grin

I often tell my friends the name is too simple for such a great delicacy grin (a particular soup has a long name but I don't fancy it as I expected so much from it because of the name undecided).

It is my best soup after rivers native soup.

Maybe you didn't buy original ogiri. Ogiri is spiritual, the smell is ahhh dunno how to describe it, the taste nkọ inside ọha soup tongue tongue hulala. I even taste mine before adding to the soup grin. I don't buy the already wrapped ogiri, I go for the one they measure aka nke nkonye tongue
When yellow pepper and enough crayfish is added. Ụka agbasa (church dismissed)

Oha soup without akwụ, ede and ogiri is not ọha. Achị, grounded cocoyam, quaker oat should not serve as thickener ooo
I prefer ọha to onugbu

The second pic was when I cooked with achi as the thickener. I think the difference is quite clear.

I don't like the soup coz the leaf is hard, I expect it to be soft and gentle on the tongue.
