Step 2 Next, wash your cocoyam thoroughly and boil without peeling. When it's done, peel off the skin and pound into a smooth paste..
Step 3 Boil your meat and fish with salt, Seasoning cubes and onions. When your meat is almost done, add your blended pepper and crayfish and continue cooking..
Step 4 Mix your palm oil with the cocoyam paste and add into the soup bit by bit, stirring after each addition. Add your Ogiri and cook for a few minutes till your cocoyam has completely dissolved into the soup..
Step 5 Add your bitterleaf. Taste for Seasoning and adjust to suit your taste. Cook for about 3mins and turn off the heat. Your ofe onugbu is ready!.
