Ghanaians like pepper a lot although there are some few exceptions. Some don't want to even taste the pepper in their foods, others also want to get cold in the process of eating to enjoy it and others don't know where there stand.
For some having that chilly hot taste should be in everything they eat even when eating eggs. That's to tell you how much Ghanaians love their pepper.
Pepper mix is inevitable in most Ghanaian dishes. Talk of soups, sauces and stews. However it's most noticeable when it's separated from the cooking process and grinded alone. Talk of foods like angwamo, that's braised rice, kenkey and the likes. Feel free to mention any.
The Ghanaian pepper mix is basically a mixture of peppers, onions and tomatoes. Cooking is versatile and so is this pepper mix, but these are the basis.
Preparing pepper mix is very easy until there's no power to blend and you've to go traditional. Using the earthenware bowl and wooden grinder shouldn't take so much time if you know this.
Wash all your ingredients. Chop your onions into smaller pieces. When you chop them in bigger sizes, it consumes more time when grinding.
Put in your pepper and add your chopped small sized onions. Sprinkle some salt on it and grind. The salt add more friction to the earthenware bowl and makes the process easier. After grinding to your satisfaction, you can now add your tomatoes chopped into small sizes.
The duration will depend on the quantity of pepper mix you want to make. Well also on your experience. It shouldn't take up to 10 minutes even if you're just a beginner.
