Akple is a Ghanaian main meal indigenous to the Ewe tribe of the Volta region. It is whitish grey in colour and we mostly roll it into spherical ball, varying in diameter for the person whom will be eating the akple.

Subsequently, the ingredients for the preparation are corn flour, cassava doug, salt and water. We traditionally eat with the hands. We usually eat with Okro soup known as “Fetri Detsi” among the Ewes. One can also eat with herrings stew(abobitadi).

Agbeli kaklo

Agbeli kaklo is a Ghanaian snack and made from cassava and eaten by the locals. The snack was introduced from the southern part of the Volta region. It is very flaky and mostly eaten with hard coconut.

The snack’s name is as such because we derive it from cassava and “Agbeli” in the Ewe language means cassava.
