Isiewu  translated as “goat head” is undoubtedly one of the most popular delicacies that  originate  from the Eastern Nigeria. Isiewu is an Eastern Nigerian classic for a reason. It is difficult to visit a local pub or joint and not find the food on the menu; also, no Igbo celebration is complete without mounds of this tasty, delicately spiced  traditional Igbo dish that is made with a goat‘s head.

If you are visiting the eastern part of the country and looking to have a taste of this palatable, you may want to lodge at hotels such  The Gate Luxury Apartment, Enugu;Finotel  Classy Hotel, Awka;  Luxury City Royale, Aba, whose chefs are skilled in preparing the delicacy.   If you,however, are not ready to take an adventure to the east, but you want to have a taste anyway,  Jumia Travel  has the perfect recipe on how to prepare an authentic and mouth-watering Isi  ewu  right at home.


You will need:

  •      1 Goat Head
  •      15 cl (150ml) Red Palm Oil
  •      2 teaspoons ground  Ehu  seeds (Calabash Nutmeg)
  •      1 tablespoon powdered edible potash (Akanwu)
  •      2 big beef flavored stock cubes
  •      2 medium onions  (1 to cook,1 to garnish)
  •      About 10 Utazi leaves

  •      Pour the palm oil into a pot and  add the potash mixture into the oil.
  •      Add the onions, pepper,  ehu  seeds,  utazi  that has been cut to tiny pieces  and seasoning cube  and  stir very well till they are all mixed properly.
  •      Add the goat head to the palm oil paste and stir very well with a wooden spatula and heat on a cooker until the Isi Ewu is piping hot.
  •      Serve the Isi Ewu in a wooden mortar and garnish with slices of  Utazi  and onion rings.
