A Taste Of Western Africa
While in Ghana, I learned to only eat with my right hand, and the food itself was spicy. Besides fresh fruit, I ate rice, fufu and banku (which is pounded corn, yams, or plantain into a sticky substance), which are often added with okra stew or groundnut soup (which is like a tomato and peanut broth). A meat would often be served as well, such as chicken, goat, beef, and rat. I enjoyed most of what we ate, with my favorite being banku and groundnut soup with chicken.
