ATTIE’KE’- Ache-ke’ (Cassava Couscous)
ATTIE’KE’ is a side dish that is native to the Ivory Coast, West Africa. However, it is also eaten in Liberia and the western part of Ghana.
Attie’ke’ is made from the Cassava / Yuca plant that is found mostly in West Africa and South America. It is prepared from fermented cassava that has been granulated.
I did not eat at all when growing up but I had heard about it several times. I guess it was because my parents had never eaten it or ate it and did not like it.
So when I finally ate it a few years ago, it was so delicious and I felt very cheated because I had been missing out for over 30 years. To make matters worse, it’s so easy to make!
The best place to find this product is an African Store or good ole Amazon. And a popular brand Nayama Natural Attie’ke’. Open up the contents in the box and cook with water, olive oil, and salt.
