How To Cook Nigerian White Soup With Melon Lumps

Nigerian white soup with egusi soup
Nigerian white soup cooked with egusi (melon) lumps.
Nigerian white soup originated from the South South Geopolitical zone of Nigeria. It's very easy to cook, serve and enjoy with fufu especially poundedyam. Because of its spicy nature, new moms are encouraged to take lots of this soup the first few weeks after delivery. Different countries have their own versions of white soups completely different from Nigerian white soup.

If well cooked with uziza hot leaves, this soup can be mega delicious and rich in


vitamins and minerals. I cooked with egusi lumps for a change. There is a post on Nigerian white soup on the blog already. Growing up,  We were served egusi lumps in white soupporridges, stews and even ogbono soup. I'll find time to cook and share the ones that are not yet here on the blog.

Beef stock for the white soup 


Adding stockfish to start before bringing to boil


 Ground egusi pounded again with some warm water until it looks like dough and becomes oily


 Egusi in the mortar, ready for lumps


Cutting and dropping in boiling stock


 It's called white soup but I like mine with a little drop of palm oil


 Dropping well pounded, now slimy yam in the stock to thicken the soup
Adding already pressure cooked beef to soup after egusi lumps




Adding washed dry catfish after the cooked beef


Adding just a handful of uziza hot leaf


 Stirring soup to mix well and thicken after adding everything. Left to simmer for about 3 minutes after everything has been added and soup is thick and ready.
