MultiPurpose Egusi Soup By Chubby ELLA

Food is ready. A plate of multipurpose egusi soup and a bottle of watermelon juice. I call it multipurpose cos it can b used 2 eat anytin...swallow,rice,yam,anytin @ all. 
Procedure:
First, I boil my chicken, stock-fish and dryfish together, well spiced cos it's meat stock I use for the  soup. Then I heat my oil on fire,pour in my onions and green pepper,allow it fry till it looks like
 it's burning then I pour in my egusi, I stir till the whole egusi is mixed with the oil then I add my parboiled tomato paste(keep stirring if not it will burn). Next, I add my part of meat, stock-fish and fish with d stockI taste and add all other ingredients left. Crayfish, benny chicken and 2cubes of boiling chicken. Stir all the way to the bottom and leave to cook till the top is covered in oil then you can add your vegetable at d last as usual.
 Heating palm oil
Ingredients needed are onions,green pepper,fresh pepper,thyme and curry,crayfish,palm-oil,salt,egusi,tomato,stock-fish,dryfish n Maggi cubes. 
Ingredients needed are onions,green pepper,fresh pepper,thyme andcurry,crayfish,palm-oil,salt,egusi,tomato,stockfish,dryfish and maggi cubes. 
 Fried egusi before I added the parboiled tomato.
 This is what it should look like when you pour the egusi in the oil.
 Adding ground egusi
 This is what it should look like after adding the  tomato.
 This is after I added my meat stock with all the orishirishi in it
All purpose egusi soup served with fufu and a bottle of watermelon juice
Enjoy!

  10. Nice one Ella. I learnt from an aunt that yellow, green n red peppers can be used in vegetable or egusi soup however I've always blended them up when I use them for soups and I've never been disappointed.
