Akla

Akla (Beans Fritters)

As breakfast, street foods and snacks go, koosé or akla is one of my absolute favourite. Growing up in Accra, I thought this was a purely Ghanaian or perhaps more specifically a Hausa breakfast snack until I learned in multi-cultural London that Akla (as my household called it) or koosé (as others, mainly the Hausas in Ghana called it) was somewhat universal.

Red Red Stew (Black Eyed Beans Stew) with fried plantains

Red Red is simply black eyed beans in tomatoes, onion, pepper, palm oil mix sauce served traditionally with fried plantain and or tatale. This meal must have elicited so much red passion and excitement in folks that it was named twice! Red Red!
