How to Prepare Ofe Nsala (White Soup)

Ofe Nsala is a delicacy peculiar to the Igbo tribe of Nigeria, especially the people of Anambra state. Ofe Nsala is known as white soup because palm oil is not used for the preparation, unlike other traditional soups.

You can use catfish to cook it, or chicken, even Assorted meats, but I will be using goat meat for my own let’s go there.
