Rivers State Meal, Onunu And Fish Pepper Soup By Young Awesome Mum

A serving of Onunu and fish pepper soup
Onunu and fish pepper soup is a meal enjoyed mostly by the kalabari and okrika people of
Rivers state, Nigeria. It can also pass for this month's challenge since plantain is one of the ingredient :D
   
INGREDIENTS
* Yam
* plantain
*palm oil
*fish
*onion
*seasoning cubes
*salt
*pepper
 Mint leaves

 I didn't put an asterisk on the last ingredient because i had all others at home except that so didn't bother going out to get some :)

   PROCEDURE
Boil your yam as usual, you can boil d yam and plantain 2geda but you'll have to let d yam boil a little before adding d plantain because the plantain doesn't need to be cooked too much because it's already soft (overripe)

 When that's done, you put d yam in a mortar and start pounding (just like you're making pounded yam). When the yam's soft you can then add the plantain and continue pounding so the plantain would mix well with the yam, when that's done add a little palm oil then pound a lil more ( like 3mins more) and your ONUNU is set to be served with pepper soup!

  We

all know how to make pepper soup, so I don't think I need to include the procedure for pepper soup ;) Its a Lil stressful because of the pounding but trust me its worth d stress ;) ;)
