Wanting to know the common food eaten by children in Estonia at night and how that food is prepared. Anafo Festus from form 6 of Zua Primary School wishes to share with his friends of Kambja, in Estonia, how to prepare TZ (tuo-zaafi) – a common food eaten by children from Northern Ghana at right.
The items needed for preparing TZ are listed below:
- Fermented water – flour left in water over night;
- Flour – millet powder
- Cooking pot
- Stirring rod
- Source of heat
- The fermented water is sieved into the cooking pot on fire, leaving flour under the container.
- For about 20 minutes time when the water is boiling, the fermented flour is stirred and poured into the water to form porridge.
- To ensure a uniform sticky texture, fetch some of the porridge into a spare container and then sprinkle flour into the pot while stirring.
- When it becomes too thick for your dislike, you pour the reserve porridge inside and stir again until a uniform sticky texture is obtained. When this is done, you then serve.
So we wrote some overviews about our national food, drew some pictures and also performed some dances, specifically hunting, war, harvest dances which you can watch from the videofilm below.
