Jollof wars aside, there are a number of foods Nigerians need to appreciate Ghanaians for. Thanks to Ghanaians, we are enjoying these foods, or at least a slightly different version of them. Here’s a list of Ghanaian foods Nigerians enjoy eating.
This one is a fave for a lot of Nigerians. The stew is a special delicacy, as is the whole meal itself. We love it so much, we even gave it a name: “Wanke” instead of “Waakye” which is the original name.
Just like Waakye, Kenkey is a favourite of Nigerians. It is usually made of ground maize, wrapped in banana leaves and then boiled. It is eaten with pepper sauce, and believe us when we say it bangs.
3. Fufu and light soup
Ghanaian fufu is made by “pounding” cassava and unripe plantains together. When paired with Light Soup, you just know it’s about to go down! The light soup is a tomato-based soup that can be made with chicken, goat, or any other meat.
4. Palava Sauce
Palava sauce is a delicacy made with meat, fish, vegetables and crushed bitter lemon seeds. Egusi soup, no? It could as well be.
5. Plam nut soup
This one is made with fresh palm nuts. Have you ever tried banga soup? Then you already have an idea of how it tastes like. In Ghana, it is eaten with fufu.
Banku is so much like fufu. It is made by fermenting corn flour, and can be eaten with different soups and stews. Finger-licking good, literally.
