BANKU MIX FLOUR (Corn & Cassava Dough)


- 250 grams of Homefoods Banku mix flour

- 600 grams of water

- Salt to taste


  1. Mix Homefoods Banku mix with water until smooth 
  2. Add a pinch of salt if desired and mix well.
  3. Transfer to high heat and stirring continuously to prevent lumps from forming.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and continue stirring with a wooden spoon or a Banku paddle to form a smooth, thick dough. The dough should be thick enough to hold its shape and not too sticky.
  5. Add warm water to your preferred consistency and cover the pot with a lid allowing it to cook on low heat for about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Wet your hands with cold water to prevent sticking, then shape the Banku into smooth balls or serve it directly in a bowl, depending on your preference.
  7. Serve the Banku hot with your choice of soup or stew, such as groundnut soup, Okro soup, palm nut soup (preferably Homefoods Tropisoup Palm Cream soup), or fish stew. Seat, relax and enjoy the Nature’s Harvest Collection.

Ghana: Growing from a small palm oil exporter into a sizeable food business

Felicia Twumasi established Homefoods in 1995. The idea for a business had been brewing since she was at convent school. Initially, the company focused exclusively on the export of red palm oil, securing substantial market share through a partner in the UK under the Blue Bay label, but today it also produces a range spices and seasonings, sauces and local Ghanaian favourites such as gari. Jeanette Clark spoke to Felicia about putting a supply chain in place, export vs local markets and the grind to grow the company’s customer base.


Homefoods was priveledged to host our European customers (Fresh Tropical) at our Accra Office-Odorkor.
