I visited mummy AB shops (My local African shop) the other day and she had fresh fufu and the first thing that came to mind was edikaikong but unfortunately for me, she didn’t have fresh ugwu but I didn’t let it stop me from treating myself to some good old edikaikong and fresh fufu.
I thought I love banga soup (Niger-Delta style) until I tried Ofe Akwu (Ibo style) and God I have been hooked since then. Ofe Akwu is versatile, affordable and easy to cook.
