Okro is a fast and affordable soup to make
With N500, you can make mixed okro soup that will come with ‘animals’ (yes plural!). All you’d do is swap expensive bits for ‘dupes’ e.g blended pepper or dry pepper and so on and it’ll taste equally good!
Okro – N70
Dry Pepper- N50
Kpomo (Panmo) –N100
Seasoning cubes- N20
Palm Oil- N100 (you need just about a small cup size depending on preference)
Locust beans – N50 (optional)
‘Panla’ fish is a cheap smoked fish that should be washed thoroughly
‘Kpomo’or ‘Panmo’ comes with no nutritional value but it’s tasty when done well
Wash okro and grate or cut as desired and set aside
Wash and boil Kpomo with little salt and seasoning, let it cool and cut into pieces in desired sizes
Bring dry pepper to boil (use water enough to cook the okro)
Add palm oil, seasoning, locust bean (don’t add salt just yet) and bring to boil
Add kpomo and fish, stir and cover to steam, taste at this point to check if salt is enough otherwise add.
Add okro into the boiling ingredients and gently turn till it mixes
Let steam for a few minutes (Do Not cover the pot)
