Actress Ibinabo Fiberesima Talks About Her Native Onunu Delicacy...

This is a must read for food Lovers......I am definitely trying this out when the Opportunity presents itself.....











From Rivers State with love......πŸ’š❤️😍 .

Onunu is a traditional delicacy from the Ijaw and Kalabari people of Rivers state usually served with peppersoup or a sauce .
.

Onunu is another interesting delicacy from Rivers State. Interesting because of the way it is prepared. I mean, we all know pounded yam, but this is yam pounded with boiled overripe plantains and then finished off with Palm oil. Onunu is served with a spicy fish pepper soup. This is what we prepared for the Port Harcourt International Food Festival, battle of the sexes! 



The whole Idea was to showcase this delicacy from Rivers State, and surprise, surprise, it went down very well and the #pepperdemgang team won, even though we served it with Odu (all stresses duly observed) this is an Okrika name for this particular soup we made. 


It is a Special kind of soup meant for Onunu. We served a three course meal, starter being Peppersoup/ prawn cocktail, your choice, the Onunu and Odu and finally a fruit salad. The whole idea was to alert the World that this could be served as a whole meal in a restaurant, at parties, dinner, lunch etc. In my household, Onunu will no longer be served with only fresh fish pepper soup, it can be served along side any local soup of your choice. 

I must mention here that maggi was the superior spice in making the soup taste so good. I love food!! I love cooking! πŸ₯°❤️🌢🌢🌢🌢 .

  4. In itsekiri they do overripe plantain and already made starch. Pound it together and eat with pepper soup or banga soup.

  13. I don't think this food is ideal for people watching their weight. Too much calories, I can't deal.

  14. I'm Yoruba and I've been making this since 2015. I first heard about it from my colleague at work, I think she's from Rivers.

    Then one fateful Saturday morning, it was raining and the weather was cold. I made fresh fish peppersoup and just tried it out. My husband was like, what are you pounding this early morning, disturbing everyone? After we ate it and adjourned to za oza room for the next course. He's never forgotten about it and it's one of our special delicacies now.
