Abula is a traditional soup of the Yorubas from the Western part of Nigeria. It is typically eaten together with Amala, but can be eaten with other swallow foods. Abula is a mixture of Gbegiri (Beans Soup), Ewedu and Pepper Sauce (Obe Ata). Abula is a wonderfully colorful southern Nigerian Yoruba soup. Amala is a thick brown paste made from yam, which had been peeled, cleaned, dried and then blended into flour. This is awesomely delicious!
