Ashanti Development is a 100 per cent volunteers' charity, set up at the request of Ghanaians living in London who asked their friends and neighbours for help to improve the terrible lives of the people they left in their home villages. It provides remote villages in the Ashanti Region with water and sanitation, healthcare, education and income generating activities.
Trying Ghanaian Food
So you are an adventurous eater you have eaten Chinese and Indian before and you love the flavours of the east. Now you are wondering whether you will like Ghanaian food. Well here is a Ghanaian meal that is traditional and one to ask for.
Red Red is a traditional black eyed bean or red beans pea stew with plantains. The bean stew gets its name from the use of palm oil in its preparation not from the red bean. Red Red contains palm oil, onions, ginger, clove garlic, tomato puree, ripe tomatoes, chopped vegetable, fish or prawn, adzuki beans, black eye peas and scotch bonnet peppers.
So AKWAABA means WELCOME in Ghana. Enjoy...
