  4. Stir, then add pounded cocoyam, in small balls to the pot, stir again and allow to cook for 5 mins and your Ofe Nsala is ready. Please, note that the cocoyam is just a thickener. In the absence of cocoyam, you can use a bit of poundo powder or cocoyam powder, using a bit of water to make into a paste and add it to the pot, it will also thicken the dish. Ofe Nsala is supposed to be thick but also runny, that means you don't want the soup to be too thick that it becomes globby.
