Ogbono soup soup originates from the south-eastern part of Nigeria where the Igbos come from. It is prepared with ground ogbono seeds also known as African mango, which grow on trees in the south-eastern part of Nigeria. Ogbono seeds are sold in the market. They are finely ground to a powder before they can be cooked.
