Ogbono soup is a tasty Nigerian soup which is easy to make. it’s also very easy to get this soup totally wrong. Now the unique thing about ogbono soup is the taste and the viscosity (ability for the soup to “draw”) of the dish.
This unique viscosity could easily be lost if ogbono soup isn’t prepared the right way especially if you use the wrong seed or the fried version as shown in my earlier post on ogbono. The fruit from which ogbono seeds is gotten from is known as the African bush mango “Irvingia gabonensis “, a tasty round fruit which is quite similar to the regular mango with a slight difference in taste and shape.
