I like egusi soup and white rice, anybody has a recipe?? Please shout out.
This is more my thing. Here goes. I have come across like 6 different ways of preparing Egusi soup Iwill however put one acoss to you. This is called Efere Ikon.It is a calabar version of preparing the soup.
1 cup of egusi; 1 cigarette cup of crayfish, 2 small onions, Ikg meat, periwinkles(optional) good stockfish, bitterleaves to ur taste.
Lets talk method.
Boil meat and/or fish in a little water after a while add a little more water.
Add all other ingredients except crayfish . Allow to simmer. Add palmoil.(You may add potash to reduce bitterness of the leaves, if ur stomach tolerates it) Leave to cook for about 10mins.Add crayfish and simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve with eba,fufu,pounded yam, semolina,ground rice. Infact whatever takes your fancy. Hope this helps. Watch out for this up-coming blog on varying your regular cooking for variety.
Today, I have successfully cooked Egusi Soup!
Thanks to recipe provide by @Stillwater, I was able to cook a pot of Egusi soup. I once tried without guidance during my University days and the result was nothing to write home about. Since then, I gave up. Today, i finally summoned courage and searched for egusi soup in Nairaland and the result is shown below. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Sorry, pictures not too sharp as I had to resize them.
