It may sound unreal, whereas it is very real in fact. This can be done with the use of a limited amount of the red oil and the groundnut oil simultaneously. You must not use much of the red oil nor of the groundnut oil if not it will not the same type of soup you are cooking. Everything has to be identic and one. This will bring a strange sensation and taste but once it is ready, the food is awesome and sweat in the mouth. Originally, the birth of this food took place as a result to compensate the shortage in supply in groundnut oil, so they had to bring in something else and special in the form of groundnut oil so that it will not be heavily felt. Most families maintained the cooking of their soup with red oil as they felt that red oil has a better taste than groundnut oil. The taste of this food is a little bit soar when swallowing.
