Cooking Egusi Soup with Traditional Grinding Stone

Published on June 4, 2019 by

In today’s video, we are showcasing the traditional grinding stone as an aid in cooking in traditional and modern kitchens in and out of Africa. Our Presenter is accompanied by our guest, Joke Aina who took us through the process and made a delicious pot of Egusi Soup.

Watch out for the next episode of Food Arena with our guest, Joke Aina who made another Nigerian delicacy, Gbegiri, and Ewedu Soup.

Happy Eid-il-Fitr to our Muslim friends all over the world

The grinding stone is a popular traditional stone solely made for the purpose of the blending of food, brought to existence in earlier days of our forefathers. Back in the days, our forefathers in search of solutions to make life better and easier for them, discovered and created some objects such as the mortal and pestle, grinding stone with which they use in blending and pounding of food items they eat for survival.

Here we are today, in the 21st century and these objects are still in very good use, despite in the intervention of technology which was used in this case to invent the modern electric blender. The electric blender is used in a modern home but you will still find homes here in Africa where these grinding stones are still so much in use.

It is still a popular belief that any food or food ingredient blended with the grinding stone, tastes way better than the food blended with a modern electric blender. How true is that? Share with us in the comment section.

    Love the video as always but in my culture, it is the Elderly that will share it i.e the fufu or eba you shared…. it’s disrespectful if you do that in my Yoruba culture….. Lets try and appreciate our culture and embrace it not “sell it” or throw it away
