Ghanaian Soya

Hello Folks!!

How have y’ll been? Well, I have been quite occupied with my work and planning for my vacation to the US this year. Yah, I got my tickets done and I’m planning to visit DC, NYC, B’more, Philly, KC & Dallas.

Anyways, this post is about a new food item which I learned from my friend George Gyau of Ghana; its called as ‘Ghanaian Soya’.

I learned this recipe from him, while he was here in Bombay for an internship through AIESEC. He used to make this item mebbe every Sunday I suppose….

Anyways, here’s how he made it.

Ingredients:

1 packet – Soya bean
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped tomato
2 finely chopped potato (french fries style)
Cooking oil (coconut or olive) anything.
tomato puree/sauce.
finely chopped coriander.

 

Preparation:

Firstly, empty the packet of soya into a bowl full of water and leave it for 10 mins, till the beans become soft and spongy.

Then, take your cookware and pour a lil oil into it, followed by chopped onion, tomato and potato. Stir it till the colour of onion is gold and potatoes are cooked well, then put all the beans inside it and stir it for 10 mins.

Lastly, the touch of tomato puree or sauce whatever you have at home and coriander. Cover with the lid for a 2 mins and let it cook.
Serve it with rice or eat with bread.!!

Love
Alan.
