Food Tips : Check out the step by step wonderful way to make yam and goat meat pepper soup (Ukodo)


The Urhobos usually serve this porridge dish to their guests with palm oil and this is done in case you felt like dipping the yam into the oil for another refreshing taste. I think this dish is fit for kings because, it is really delicious! I urge you my dears to try this recipe for your family today, you don’t have to wait for any ceremony to make something nice for your family; after all, they are all kings and queens in themselves. 



Try and go minimal with the dried chilies, so as to make this dish friendly for the kids and I am very sure you will put a smile on everyone’s face. Did I say anything about the aroma of this dish? Oh my! It is something else altogether. 

Let’s cook! 

Ingredients: 

1) Goat meat 1kg (you can add offal’s as well) 

2) Small size yam 

3) Small bunch lemon grass 

4) Scent leaves ( I used this at the end for garnishing) 

5) 20g ground crayfish 

6) Ground dried chillies (Use as desired) 

7) Pepper soup spice mix ( Ehru seeds, gbafilo, umilo, uheri pod) 30g 

8) Seasoning 10g 

9) Salt 2g (traditionally the Urhobos use native salt Ughweri) 

Directions: 

1) Prepare the ingredients 

2) In a clean pot, Add in the well washed goat meat, water, seasoning, pepper soup spice mix, lemon grass, dried chilies, crayfish and salt. Allow this to simmer for 30 minutes or until the meat is partly cooked. 

Cooks tip: I had to buy the whole lemon grass plant from a horticulturist so I could have it for keeps, I know I will have many more uses for this fragrant grass. I really like the aroma it adds to this dish. 

3) Once the meat is tender, take out the lemon grass, and add in more water, about 2 cups 

4) Add in the yams, and cook until soft, if you like it thick, allow it to simmer for longer until it begins to thicken, if not, it should be ready at this point. Just check for seasoning and salt and adjust accordingly and your delicious yam and goat meat pepper soup is ready. 

A proper Urhobo woman will serve you this amazing dish with palm oil, but for me, I am stopping right here. Enjoy! 

Be inspired!
