Foods of Ghana

I have found the local cuisine in Ghana to be quite tasty. Among the staples are fufu and goat in ground nut soup, okra stew with banku, fried fish with kenkey, and red red. Fufu is made from cassava and plantains and banku  and kenkey are made from fermented maize and cassava. Kenkey is served with a wickedly spicy green sauce. Red red is a dish of beans cooked in palm oil and fried plantains. It is usually served with either fried fish or chicken.
