Spicy tomato based sauces, soups and stews like hot Ghanaian chicken stew are very popular in Ghana, Nigeria and other West African countries.
They are usually accompanied by starchy foods like cassava, yams, plantains, rice, sweet potatoes or fufu to name a few. Some of the stews and sauces in the Ghanaian cuisine can be extremely hot and it would be wise for anyone not used to large amounts of chili and hot curries to be careful when using them in some of the recipes. Always be aware that there are many kinds of chilies that can be used in the kitchen and they range from slightly spicy like the Jalapeno pepper for example to extremely hot like the Carolina Reaper.
Well having said that the ghanaian stew recipe that I will present to you today will be spicy and tasty with a sting that will entertain and tingle your taste buds but won't burn them. The flavors of the stew, rice and okra harmonize beautifully making this a really joyful eating experience.
