Indeed the taste matters the most but some persons may prefer one soup over the other due to it's appearance or texture.

In this respect, would you still prefer both?

I used to prefer the frying method but not with tomatoes and neglect the soaking method until I tasted it and found that it's same thing so far as the taste is nice..

But I like frying mine when cooking egusi soup
