Tapoli is a traditional Ghanaian tool used for pounding and flattening fermented corn or millet to make a popular local dish called kenkey.


Tapoli, also known as a kenkey stick or kenkey paddle, is a traditional wooden tool used in Ghanaian cuisine. It is typically made from a sturdy piece of wood and has a flat, wide surface at one end and a handle at the other. The tool is used in the preparation of kenkey, a fermented corn or millet dough that is a staple in Ghanaian cuisine.

To make kenkey, the fermented dough is pounded using the flat surface of the Tapoli to achieve a smooth and elastic texture. The pounding process also helps to develop the characteristic flavor of the dish. The handle of the Tapoli provides a secure grip for the person pounding the dough, allowing them to exert the necessary force to properly prepare the kenkey.
