shallots. Add a little water, put it on the fire and allow to boil for about

10 minutes.

4. Continue to simmer, stirring only occasionally to prevent the food

sticking to the bottom of the pan. This is now the basic soup.

5. Pour the rest of the boiling water into the soup and simmer slowly

on medium heat for 20 mins or so.

This Ghanaian recipe soup is usually served with FUFU, an Akan

dumpling made from yams, plantinas, cassava or even processed

potato flakes. The FuFu should sit like an island in a sea of soup.This

is a dish that is traditionally eaten with your fingers – even the soup!!
