New Soup Recipe for the Holiday Season
Atama Soup is synonymous with the Efiks and Ibibios in South-East, NIgeria. The Soup is for ordinary or special events.
To us it’s an occasional cooking because of the Base; Palm Kernel Extract, considered high in cholesterol by few. So it’s once in a while.
Lately research show Palm Oil is plant based with low Cholesterol level, rich in Vitamins and safe to use.
My opinion; everything in moderation.
Boil assorted meat with dry Chilly Pepper till tender, add sieved extracted Palm Kernel Seed or use the canned. Add dry lobster, powdered crawfish add blended Atama Leaves or substitute; Blended Afang used here. Cook all until it thickens. Soup is ready. You can eat with Garri Dough, Fufu (Cassava Dough) or Pounded Yam.
When you tray it, let me know.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR
Darlington lol. They sell banga in the African store ? Right
Ezekiel yes now
Darlington alright. Thanks
Ezekiel The kernel Pulp or Pulp tinned as in picture above.
Remi what about this?
Ezekiel I think it’s the powdered local spice with four edges. Youruba call it either Eru or Iyeru. The main base is the Palm Kernel Extract. You just need a teaspoon of the spice for flavor. You know it can be Banga sea food too, not only assorted beef.
Remi alright. Thank you
Remi I will send a picture. I used Atama straight from my Moms farm. The sweet one along with the uyayak for flavor.
Vickkie Please do.
Remi taste better, just ate it with rice 🍚. Love it
Vickkie Yes very good with rice.
