Are you finding it hard to cook Banga soup then this article is for you because I'll be sharing with you a simple method you can use in cooking Banga soup.
You'll need the following ingredients:
1500grams Palm nut Extract
1 Medium size Catfish or any preferred fresh fish
Assorted Meats of your choice
2-3 Medium Pieces Stockfish (Panla, Okporoko)
1-2 Medium Dried Fish ( I’m using catfish)
1/2 Cup Fresh or Smoked Shrimps (Optional)
1 Tablespoon Ground Dried Crayfish or prawns ( Prawns preferably)
1-2 Tablespoons Banga Spice
1-2 Tablespoons Crushed Obeletientien leaves or Dried bitter leaves
2 Scotch bonnet ( Atarodo)
1 Medium onion chopped
2 Tablespoons dried pepper (Atagungun) This is optional if you’re using Rodo but I l prefer mine really hot.
1/2 Cup Periwinkles (optional)
Salt to taste
1. Cut your fish and was thoroughly, if you are using catfish wash it with salt because it can be quite slimy so as to remove slime.
2. Now you'll have to boil your meat first that's if you are using any, boil it with chopped onions, maggi cubes, salt and a teaspoon of Aromat seasoning.
3. When the meat is tender not soft please, you can then add your dried stock fish boil till the stock fish is tender, and your meat will be soft then, you can add you smoked fish. Switch of the heat simmer for 2 minutes.
4. Transfer you palm nut extract into a big pot. You can use the stock from the meat and water then you mix throughly.
Note: Do not cover the pot from now till you finish cooking
5. Let it boil for 10 to 20 minutes
6. Then add the Banga Spice, ground crayfish or prawns, dried pepper, maggi cube and salt to taste. You may not need too much salt if your stock is well seasoned so be mindful.
7. Please do not add too much Banga spice you can start with a teaspoon and add more if needed because too much spice will make your Banga soup bitter.
8. Let it cook for 5 minutes.
9. Now you can add your shrimp, fresh fish, periwinkle (that's only if you are using any), reduce the heat and allow it to cook for 10 minutes, then you'll notice palm oil settling on the top. You can remove some palm oil if you think it's too oily.
10. Add your washed bitter leaves, stir it well and cook for at least 2 minutes then you can switch off the heat.
Now you are done.
