At first glance, I thought I had seen a huge shepherd’s pie or vanilla cake out of pan. I was wrong… Melkert in South Africa is commonly served as dessert, and although being a pie its recipe is similar with the popular pancakes or crepes.
Waakye actually pronounced “Wachay” is a very popular Ghanaian street food. Rumor has it that this meal originated from the northern past of the “Gold Coast”. Usually made with rice, black eyed beans and sorghum mill stalks. I can vividly remember my days in Accra, Ghana and how waakye was my go-to-food; It was somewhere between 6 to 10 Ghana Cedis for a decent pack of this delicacy.
