Akatoa is a Twi word (language of the Akan ethnic groups in Ghana; Asante, Akyem, Fante etc.) Akatoa is a type of whitish flat seeds from the melon fruit family eaten as vegetable by most West and Central African countries. Akatoa is also known as Agushi in Ghana by the Ga tribe and Egusi in Nigeria. Akatoa is used to make delicious stews and soups with assorted fishes, meats, mushrooms, seafood that are eaten with most starchy foods like yams, cassava, plantains, cocoyams, rice etc.
