Dont want to sound mean, but where are the women in your lives? Most of you seem to do your own cooking and i do wonder when you are going to settle down with some good women who can feed you proper grub :smilie_laugh:

Anyway, here you are my dear.

Ingredients: 1. Palm nut soup (hope you know how to prepare that one?) For maximum effect add red kidney beans to the soup and crabs for garnishing if you can get them. Any fish or meat you wanna use in the soup is up to you but meat is better as it wont break up. No Prekese in the soup please! I know you Ashantes are hooked on the stuff.

2. Roasted maize flour; or kyekyere the kind you use to cook local Tom brown.....not the imported one. All the good Ghanaian shops should sell some.

3. Salt

4. Sauce Pan or Dadesein if you got one

5. Banku Ta or a wooden laddle.

Lets get cooking:

The palmnut soup is the only liquid you are going to cook this dish with so take note.

Scoop a few laddles of the finished palmnut soup into the saucepan you are going to cook the Aprans in and bring to a boil.

In the meantime the rest of the soup should be on the side hot and simmering. Cold soup will spoil the dish.

Now pour a reasonable amount of the roasted corn powder into the sauce pan and stir as you would do with akple or banku.

The rest of the palm nut soup is what you would substitute for water till the apras is done.

A well cooked one should be very moist and pliable so give it some good cooking time and turning plus loads of palmnut soup.

For serving, scoop it into a square or round bowl and smoothen the top, then turn it onto a plate. Garnish it with the crabs and some of the kidney beans.

The meat and some of the kidney beans will be entrenched in the mixture and makes for nice discovery.

Eat it hot or cold. I like mine cold and sliced into wedges. But some people like it moist and hot; straight from the sauce pan. Add some of the soup to it if you want.

Dont i know all about prekese, i put them in every soup i make. I actually dont know the essence of it, i think i do it because its a cultural thing.

prekese is a spice which smells nicely and it is medicine, among others for high blood pressure.

Yes, I finally made some this evening.

I finally figured out why I got half the pics. I didn't wait for the pics to finish uploading.

Now the beauty of the meal.

And all from a microwave oven.

Below, I did justice to the meal.

Really tasty. Worth the effort.

Did you roast the semoule?

I have slow-roasted yellow cornmeal in the oven, shaking every few minutes. It came out really nice.
