Frequently Asked Questions about Ogbono Soup
My Ogbono Soup does not draw. Why?
There are 3 main reasons why your Ogbono Soup does not draw.
1. You bought the fake Ogbono. There is another seed that looks so much like Ogbono and is sold as Ogbono seeds in Nigerian markets. First sign that you are buying the wrong seeds is if they are too cheap to be true. To confirm that the seeds are really Ogbono seeds: break the seed and rub the broken sides together, if they make a sap that draws, then you’ve got the real Ogbono seeds.

2. You used packaged ground Ogbono, ground being the keyword here. Once you grind Ogbono, it starts losing its potency to draw and with time, it won’t draw anymore. The exact time at which it completely loses its potency to draw will depend on: how dry the Ogbono was before the grinding took place and how well it is packaged amongst other things. Also some of the ground ogbono are so dusty that the ratio of ogbono to dust is 1:1 hence if you measure 1 cup of ogbono, technically you have 1/2 cup of ogbono in there.

3. You fried it before adding the meat/fish stock. The ground Ogbono should only be dissolved in the palm oil NOT fried. The more you fry it, the more it loses its drawing ability till you’ve got no potency left. This happens even if it is the authentic Ogbono seed.
