It is perhaps a student’s best companion. Gar shit – a meal prepared with gari and hot pepper sauce better known as ‘shito’ – for students in boarding house is a saviour.

All you need is gari (dried cassava dough), shito, salt, any vegetable of your choice and onions if you so wish.


If you’ve been a student in any senior high school in Ghana, you know that this meal does not only taste great but fills you up for hours – sometimes all day.

It is really satisfying. Try it this weekend and thank me later.
