Today’s dinner looks something like this

Cooking, Food, Ghanaian Dish, Healthy Food, Healthy Meals, One Of Five A Day

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today i am taking you to a kitchen in the continent of africa; a ghanaian kitchen.


This meal is known as kenkey and pepper. The kenkey is made of milled corn or maize sifted like when you sift flour. The corn or maize is soaked in water for a couple of days then taken to the milled center to mill. They are then formed into balls and wrapped in the corn leaves and boiled. One thing i like about this is that it is not over processed and has no additives.

You can prepare porridge for breakfast by adding water and leaving it on fire to thicken; add some sugar or honey, evaporated milk or any milk of your choice and there you have your breakfast.


Kenkey, pepper and chilli (Shito)

It is usually eaten with pepper and tomotoes grinded and blended together and fried fish, fried eggs or tinned titus tuna however i had this with salmon. You can also add chilli. The dark sauce you see is the chilli and it’s called shito. It is made of dried powdered herrings, shrimps and pepper stewed. This is vegetarian friendly if you have the kenkey and the pepper without the chilli.


Untill next time its bon appettit from me.
