Eko ninu Ewe


Well-Known Member
Okay i have been terribly craving for Eko (don't know if there is an English name for it) but the Nigerian way. I really want to try and cook it with the leaf but I have no clue where to get them. Please, does anybody know?

The closest to the research I could find was this Thaumatococcus daniellii plant. Now I know some have tried it with Banana leaves, but does it bring the same "taste"?

If they are selling it in your area, I would send you the money to help me buy them and I am very serious about this.

You know, I asked someone about this today, she said banana leaves is what she uses, but she soaks in lime and vinegar to get the 'taste'. Never tried it, I hate anything that comes from Ogi.
