The Okazi leaf is mostly used in the eastern part of Nigeria. I recently had a request for lumpy egusi on my blog although, I have other types of egusi soup (melon seed) cooked with uwgu but I thought it’s high time I made another type of egusi and since some of my readers are now requesting for it. I enjoy egusi soup in any form it comes.

What better way to enjoy the pumpkin season other than cooking the pumpkin leaves or ugwu as it is popularly called in Nigeria. I love ugwu so much but what I love more is the way my mum cooks hers. I’ll never forget the way Naija women chop the vegetable, no trained chef can beat them to it.
