Hausa – Koko porridge

By Francine Holmes

Koko porridge is a popular breakfast food here in Ghana and in other parts of Africa.

Overall the make up of the dish is standard, it is typically made with corn dough ( a paste made with corn and rice flour, that could be either homemade or purchased at the market) and water. However they are some variations to this dish based on where it is made. In Cote d’Ivoire, ginger paste or chili powder is sometimes added.

To prepare it simply add the corn dough to boiling water, and add a pinch of salt.
Stir for about a minute, remove from the heat, add sugar to taste and then serve.
Hausa can be had two ways: on the go or as a sit-down breakfast. (As pictured above).
