Nsala soup

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nsala soup is made with small pieces of yam with utazi leaves. The soup originates from the eastern part of Nigeria. A major ingredient is the catfish, which gives the soup a unique taste. Nsala is similar to Afia Efere, which is common among the Efik ethnic group.[1]
