Ata ekuru ("ekuru pepper"), or obe ekuru ("ekuru sauce"), is a red sauce used to garnish ekuru. Without it, the ekuru cannot be enjoyed.




  1. Combine the bell pepper, chiles, and cayenne pepper. Blend to a chunky paste.
  2. Heat the palm oil in a pan. After about 5 minutes, add the blended pepper mixture to the hot oil. Season with salt and bouillon cubes to taste, and add any of the optional ingredients as desired.
  3. Let cook over medium-low heat for about 30–40 minutes, until well-cooked and the oil is floating on top of the sauce.
  4. Serve with ekuru.
