Tapoli, combined with asanka, is the local blender for Ghanaians until the introduction of blender. The English name for tapoli is Wooden Grinder.
Most of us thought the English name for kontomire was cocoyam leaves since we get cocoyam from it's root. We were wrong then because the English name for kontomire is Taro Leaves.
