Raw Ghanaian Red Pepper Sauce



A spicy, raw pepper sauce made with just a few ingredients!

Btw, in Ghana, when we say “pepper” we don’t mean bell peppers but are rather referring to “chillis”.

Red peppers have many health benefits including the ability to reduce inflammation, clear congestion and boost immunity.

This is the perfect spicy dip for your baked yam chips, baked cassava fries or as an accompanying sauce to a main dish! You definitely have to give this one a try!

If you don’t have an asanka (grinding bowl) and pestle, you can always just throw all the ingredients into a blender and blend away! But if you prefer an asanka then get your biceps ready for grinding!
