Chicken with Egusi

This chicken soup is thickened with flour ground from seeds of a melon or gourd (species of cucurbitaceae) called egusi. Look for egusi (also called agusi, agushi, egushi) in African or International grocery stores. Pumpkin seeds can be substituted, as can pepitas, which are available in Latin American grocery stores. Sesame seeds might also be used with some success.
