African Okra Soup with Kombo - Swala,  also called "Swala", or "Mula Kombo ta Bamia", is a specialty of the Kakwa tribe from Yei, South Sudan. It is a vegetarian, low calorie soup free of gluten. So it is in fact a light soup to serve prior to your main course or as a side dish. The special ingredient in this meal is the traditional salt  Kombo, which gives a distinctive taste and smell. All the ingredients are easily found, except of course, Kombo, which is specially made or sourced from South Sudan and Sudan. Variations to this recipe include addition of smoked meat or dried fish. Addition of peanut butter will thicken the sauce and change it to a stew.

 Okra, 2 cups of okra cut into ¼ inch cross-sectional slices,(remember to slice and discard both end tips)
 ½ cup chopped onions
 2 tomatoes, diced
 Kombo or ½ teaspoon of icarbonbate soda
 1 tbsp oil
 4 cups Water
