Banga is the Nigerian name for Palm-fruit which Palm oil is made from and it’s also the base for most Nigerian soups. The raw extract from the fruit is very rich and has an amazing taste when used in cooking especially with some of Africa’s age-long herbs & spices.
These spices are usually hard to find in most western countries. You can find the ready-made spice mixtures and dried herbs in most African/Asian food stores.
In this recipe, I cooked my Banga soup with oxtail, fresh fish & Prawns, just the way I like it. You can use any preferable substitute.
Here’s the recipe for my delicious Banga soup:
