ATAMA SOUP OR BANGA SOUP

ATAMA SOUP OR BANGA SOUP

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.


Ingredients

  • Assorted Meat and Stockfish
  • Powdered Chilly Pepper
  • Canned or Fresh Palm Kernel Extract
  • Maggie Cube(s)
  • Salt to taste
  • Shredded and Blended Atama or Afang Leafs. Here I subsided Afang for Atama Leaf
  • Iyeru (Yoruba) the picture is near the canned Palm Kernel Extract. Cut the sides into cubes and drop in the soup, to add flavor. Don’t eat with soup, remove when eating, just to add flavor
  • Dry fish
  • Cray Fish
  • Dry Lobster

Cooking Method


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

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.

This is one of my fav. Just made one yesterday. It’s one of the easiest soups to make. And because it can be light, it goes very well with rice. I also love mine with catfish. It is so so good

Very nice and nourishing. Were you able to get Atama leaves or you cooked it plain?. Do you know others for Atama by other tribes of the South-South or Douth-East?
