Now, let’s get started-
• Get the cocoyam and boil it. Wait until it is done. To check if it is done, pierce it with a knife or any clean pointed iron. If it is soft, then it is done and ready. This takes about 10 to 15 minutes at most; depending on the intensity of your fire.
• When it is done, bring it down. Peel them and put in a mortar for pounding. Pound until it is very pulpy.
• Put the cocoyam pulp in a pot that you will be cooking with.
• Cook the Onugbu for about 5 minutes. Pour it into a sieve for the water to drain out.
• Add some water to the pot that the cocoyam is in. Set the pot on the fire.
• Wash the meats and/or fish and add to it.
• Add the red oil. Cover the pot and let it cook for a while.
• As you wait, start pounding the crayfish, and pepper.
• Add the pounded ingredients.
• Add cube and/or sachet seasonings. Cube, about 3, depending on the size of the soup. The sachet, one is enough.
• Add the Ogiri. About one or two wraps.
• Add the Onugbu leaves to the soup.
• Add salt to taste.
• Allow it to cook for a while. Taste it. If the salt is not enough, you add a little more. If the taste is nice, you bring it down.
• You have succeeded in preparing an Onugbu soup.
Note: Make sure you wash all the kitchen utensils used for the cooking.
