Oha soup is native to the South Eastern Nigeria and is a very traditional soup similar to the bitterleaf soup but cooked with Oha leaves.

If you love native soups, then you’ll definitely want to give this a try.

      Ij to me i think She tried for a Yoruba lady cooking an igbo soup,she only needed to be corrected on some aspects of it but it should have been done nicely.I think why you were tagged as a tribalistic person was the Acronym you used,”Ofe Mmanu tins”. we all know it’s a derogatory way of addressing the Yoruba’s,each tribe has that derogatory way of addressing each other which to me,isn’t nice at all.You could correct someone without necessarily saying such.

    Ij… Don’t think it’s oily! It could be the steam or the effects from the camera..

      I watched the video and the oil to soup ratio is just way off. I’m not the only way saying it.

    It looks yummy. But too much oil for me.

    You did well, but next time don’t add too much palm oil, you’re using yoruba hand to cook igbo soup.

    It taste better when prepared with banga rather than palm oil

    Well she tried but there are not enough vegetables in the soup…the beef is competing with it, presentation wise. For healthier cooking, replace that much palm oil with gino tin tomatoes (for colour) and vegetable oil . Using chicken with your meat is also healthier.

    Ndi – aja ite everywhere!
    @ Brenda B, which one is Gino tomato for Ofe oha for bikonu ?
    Chicken is not a traditional meat for ofe oha except for health reasons.
    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the color or amount if oil in this soup! Right choice of meat too. Only soup could do with more leaves.
    Standard. Ofe oha is made with oil not akwu to give a bright yellow colour. Ndi – aja ite, everybody, suddenly become Oha soup experts !

      You are the Ajo-Ite my sister, standard Oha is made with Akwu (banga)… it tastes better too. sisi yemi did well for a non-igbo.

      You be original ajo ite sef. lol. original ofe Oha is made with mkpurunkwu (palm fruits). You boil the palm fruits and extract the fresh oil from it and use it to cook the oha. Infact using ordinary plalmoil from market to cook oha soup is seen as being lazy and a bad cook.

    @maxie , akwu does not produce consistent bright “yellowness”. Banga is okay for personal / small portions . Anya ga -eri before afo biko . I cannot stand unattractive oha or ofe onugwu !

    Sisi yemmie, for a non igbo, you did very well. well done.

    She tried for a non Igbo……But the soup could do with more oha vegetables and less beef instead put more dry fish and okporoko…………We from Anambra state put Uli ede as thickner and Uziza for spices. Aunty Yemmie should come for tutorial from a man who cooks very well
