A Ghanaian earthenware bowl is a clay grinding pot with ridges on the interior. It includes a wooden masher known as eta or tapoli in the local dialect.
It’s known as a classic blender, and it’s best used in places where electricity isn’t available.
It’s also known as a pounding pot. The Ga people refer to it as Kaa, whereas the Akans refer to it as apotoyewaa or Asanka. It’s widely used as a serving bowl in chop bars.
How To Use An Earthenware Bowl
The use of Asanka requires skill, forearm strength, and correct technique to prevent sore wrists.
To make grinding easier, the ingredients are diced into small pieces before being placed in the Asanka.
The Asanka’s ridges minimize the amount of surface area in touch with the ingredients, allowing it to grind more effectively.
Forceful use of a wooden masher, the eta or tapoli, uses the friction between the ridges to mix the ingredients.
Repeating the process will pulverize and mix the ingredients over time.
