Hello Wonderful Readers 😀 ! Hope you had a great week! Today on this column we would learn how to make Oha Soup, its native to the South Eastern Nigeria. It is a traditional soup cooked with Ora leaves which are seasonal.
Ingredients for Oha Soup
*.Vegetable – Ora leaves
*. Cocoyam– 8 small corms
*.Red Palm Oil – 3 cooking spoons
*.Assorted Beef – Includes best cut, shaki
*.Assorted Fish – Dry Fish and Stock Fish
*.Chilli Pepper, Salt and Crayfish
*.2 Stock cubes
Boil the shaki, stock fish and dry fish in 1 litre of water till they are well done. First sign of a done shaki is that the cuts will start curling on itself.
Wash the beef and add to the pot of shaki etc. and continue cooking. When the meat is done, add 2 stock cubes and cook for 5 minutes.
Add the pepper and ground crayfish, and cook for 10 minutes. Add the cocoyam paste in small lumps and then the palm oil.
Cover the pot and leave to cook on high heat till all the cocoyam lumps have dissolved. You can add more water if you feel that the soup is too thick.
Add the ora leaves and leave to cook for about 5 minutes.
Add salt to taste and the soup is ready to be served with Eba, Cassava Fufu, Semolina, Amala or Pounded Yam.
