    Irú is a type of fermented African locust beans used as a condiment in cooking. It is similar to ogiri and douchi. It is very popular among the Yoruba people of Nigeria. It is used in cooking traditional soups like egusi soup, okro soup and ogbono soup. It can be found fresh or dried. The fresh variety is usually wrapped in moimoi leaves, which are similar in appearance and texture to banana leaves. It has a very pungent smell. The dried variety is flattened into discs or cakes for sale. Dried iru is weaker in flavor and pungency than fresh. The dried variety stores very well in freezers.
