Ghana is 62-years today and as part of our special celebration of the birthday of such a great nation. We are dedicating our Foodie Fan post to our cherished readers from Ghana, and in the kitchen to prepare one of the best dishes from the country is Ghanaian food content creator, Fafa Gilbert with food blog Ndudu By Fafa.
With an attention-grabbing YouTube video, Fafa walks us through how to prepare ‘Fante Fante’ which is a popular delicacy from the Central Region of Ghana- A part of the country which is famous for its rich history as a major point for the slave trade during colonialism.
To prepare the ‘Fante Fante’ dish, Fafa settled on the recommended ingredients like Palm Oil and her special favourite Habanero Chilli to add flavour. She proceeded to add Grains of Selim (Hwentia) which according to her could be optional. The recipe includes a fish of your choice; for this one, Fafa went in for Red Mullet and Wild Seabass. She also added that Tilapia is not a bad option at all. Other ingredients added to spice up the dish were ginger, onion, aniseed, garlic blend, rosemary and salt, after which she stirred and allowed to fry for about five minutes.
While it’s frying, you can blend your tomatoes so well to get rid of the liquid content and then add it together with shrimp powder, allow it to cook for another five minutes.
The final process is to add your fish for it to simmer for ten minutes, then your ‘Fante Fante’ is ready to be eaten with anything including Banku but in Fafa’s case, she used Eto (Similar to Banku)
Watch entire process of how to prepare ‘Fante Fante’ below. Happy Independence day to all our cherish readers from Ghana.
