Step by Step instructions

  • Add your seasoning cubes and a little salt to your washed fish or meat (beef, goat meat, ponmo, cow leg, chicken, pork, or Shaki) and start boiling alongside your stock fish, smoked fish, and dry fish.
  • When your fish or meat (Goat meat, Beef, Cow leg, Ponmo (Cow Skin), Pork, Chicken, Shaki, or any meat of your choice) is tender, add your desired quantity of palm oil to the water to cook.
  • Once you are sure your fish/beef/goat meat/pork/Ponmo/Shaki/Chicken or any protein of your choice is tender, scoop it out from the pot, especially if you are using Fish. If you don’t remove the fish, it may scatter inside the soup when you add the egusi or the vegetables and stir. To prevent that, scoop it into a clean bowl and set it aside for later.
  • As the stock and palm oil mixture is boiling, grind and add your blended fresh pepper or grounded pepper and tomatoes (optional) and your chopped onions.
  • Proceed to add your egusi into the boiling stock water and allow it to boil for at least 10 minutes.
  • Add your ground crayfish and Iru (Locust beans) (optional)
  • Add your Pumpkin leaves, spinach, bitter leaf, utazi, waterleaf, or any vegetable. (If you don’t add vegetables to your soup, skip this step).
  • Add your set aside fish/beef/goat meat/pork/Ponmo/Shaki/Chicken or any protein of your choice into the pot of boiling soup. This will allow the fish/beef/goat meat/pork/Ponmo/Shaki/Chicken or any protein of your choice to absorb the taste of the Egusi (some people hate the taste of fresh fish or meat. You can as well fry or roast it before adding it back).
  • Taste and see if the quantity of seasoning is perfect and adjust if necessary. Then cover and allow the soup to cook for 10 minutes on low heat. Once the vegetables have softened a little bit, stir and serve.
  • Your Egusi soup is ready to be served with Eba, Semovita, Pounded yam, Fufu, Amala, Starch, Poundo potato, Rice, Yam, or Bread.JAMB Result
