Groundnuts are a West African favourite. Pureed they can be made into incredible soups and stews. As a street food it has few equals. Glazed with honey and then baked, it turns into a snack made for when you just want to munch on something sweet to while away the time. Foe those moments of relaxation after a hard day's work, I guess.
It is no great surprise that in times when I need a super quick snack shito on toast comes to mind. What could be easier than toasting bread and “buttering” it with some shito?
Nkatie Cake: "My favourite hang outs are usually on the streets of Accra and elsewhere in Ghana, usually perched on the head of a vendor. Ironically, the roasted groundnut or peanut you need to make me also come perched on the head of a vendor. I guess I am what you’d call a typical Ghana street food."
