Legend has it that anyone who tries this sauce automatically becomes fluent in Ga and Twi (two
Ghanaian dialects), so if you want to become multilingual overnight then go and make yourself a batch now. HA, the secret is out!! I cannot tell you enough how versatile this sauce is. I am yet to find a meat that this sauce doesn't go with. I tell you tomato sauce has got nothing on this one. In fact this sauce is hot and sexy (what has sexy got to do with sauce? It's February guys everything should be hot, spicy and saucy). Enough of that, let me show you how I made it.
Photo 1. Ingredients: 80gms of dried long chillies, 8 medium sized brown onions, 80gms of smoked prawns, 6 cups vegetable oil, ginger(thumb size which is about 2 inches), 10 dried ghanaian cloves (in Sierra Leone we call it spice), 5 prawn stock cubes and 11/2 tps of salt (or to your liking).
Photos 2-6: Shows how I put the ingredients in the food processor before blending into a paste. Not I put the onions under as that will wet the other ingredients as it blends. No water should be added to the paste.
Photo 8: Then add the oil
