I came across THIS BLOG the other day and had fun looking through all of the Ghanaian foods this woman has shared how to make. I always go to BETUMI for the best Ghanaian food recipes, because they are tried and true and the writer adapts things for Americans. It was interesting to read the GhanaianFoods blog because these recipes are described more how a Ghanaian would describe. I learned new things (like what an Asanka is, and that Ghanaians use ground melon seeds)!
Today I got the ingrediants to make Chicken Stew with Rice. I will miss the fried plantain for sure, but our store didn't have any plantain today. My version will not include 10-12 kpakpo shito peppers! A bit of red pepper flakes will be our only spice, because I'm a wimply American. Still, hopefully the meal will give my family a reason to miss Ghanaian food as much as I do!
