Soak your Egusi with hot water, turn it well until they mix together.
Set your cooker and add plam oil to your pot. When your oil have heated, add your salt, a portion of your sliced onions then the soaked egusi. keep turning the egusi and don't allow it get burnt, until it starts folding like tiny cheese.

For me when cooking I love keep small portion of onion that I will add to the food when it about to get done, so that when eating it, you will get the taste of the onion.

Now add a portion of your sliced pepper and a little water for it to boil very well.

Now add your seasoning (Maggi) depending on the quantity of soup that you're cooking. Add enough water that you want to use for the soup, then add the remaining portion of your sliced pepper and allow to boil very well like about 5mins.
