My Eastern sisters were are you guys???? It’s time to end that junk food and go for as well prepared food. An African dish is a nutritious meal but sometimes it is difficult to prepare. Today am going to be teaching you how to prepare Ofe Ugba, thanks to Nigerian Recipe.
The popular oil bean seed is known as the Ugba. Ugba undergoes extensive fermentation before it is considered fit for human consumption. Ofe Ugba is a soup native to Imo and Abia states of Nigeria and is simply Okra Soup cooked with shredded oil beans. You can call it Ofe Ukpaka or Shredded Oil Bean Soup. It is known as Ukpaka in Anambra, and Ugba in Imo. The recipe we present in this piece is a native way of preparing this traditional Igbo dish.
Here are the ingredients needed for your Ofe Ugba:
Dried stockfish (Okporoko)
Ukpaka (Anambra); Ugba (Imo)
Ground dried pepper.
Akanwu (cooking potash)
Ogili (fermented locust beans)
