8 DELICIOUS GHANAIAN DISHES YOU MUST TRY.
Ghana is an anglophone Western African country. It boasts a population of about 27 million and is the ninth largest economy in Africa. Ghana is rich in culture and the unique way in which they prepare their food is what makes them stand out. When in Ghana, eat like a Ghanaian. These are the 10 Ghanaian dishes you must try in your life time.
Waakye And Shito:
Waakye (pronounced wa-chayy) is a unique Ghanaian dish of rice and beans. It is usually a street side food that can be eaten for breakfast or brunch. It can be eaten with shito (Ghanaian pepper sauce/salsa) or with vegetables .
Banku And Tilapia:
Banku is a meal prepared by fermenting corn flour, it is just like fufu and can be eaten with stews/soups. Tilapia is a fresh water fish that is very popular in Ghana. The fish is usually grilled. Both are served with Shito on the side.
Abe Nkwan (Palm nut Soup):
Palm nut soup is a rich soup made from fresh palmnuts that is loved not just in Ghana but West Africa, Nigerians have a version they call Banga soup. The nuts are boiled, pounded to extract the juice from the nut’s meat. The process is no doubt daunting but the result is a full tummy and satisfaction. Palm nut soup can be eaten with Omutuo (riceballs) or Kokonte.
Ghanaians like other West Africans are big on soups. Groundnut soup is a delicious and yummy soup made from peanuts. The soup can be served with crabs or fish (Tilapia of course!)
Red Red (Beans Stew) And Plantain:
Red Red has to be one of the best Ghanaian dishes hands down. It’s a beans stew made with black eyed peas, palm oil and seasonings to taste. The best accompaniment for this delicacy is fried plantain. Yum!
Jollof rice is another West African favorite. The delicious rice dish can be cooked plain or with mixed vegetables. Jollof is an experience, its awesomeness cannot be explained with words.
Kontomire (Palava Sauce):
Palaver is a Portuguese word which means a long lengthy argument/talk. It has increasingly become a West African slang. Palava sauce can be roughly translated ‘problem sauce’. It’s a sauce made with a combination of meats, fish, leafy vegetables, and crushed bitter melon (agoushie) seeds. Palava sauce sure does wonders to the taste buds.
Garden Egg Stew:
This is a personal favourite. The stew is made from the egg plant. The pulp gotten from it is cooked, seasoned and can be garnished with boiled egg, fish, chicken, you name it. The stew is popularly eaten with boiled plantain or boiled yam. Eat this with your favourite sauce accompaniment and you would agree that it is in fact eggcellent!
