Tchouk(Choukachou, pronounced cho-ku-tu) is the local millet beer which is brewed locally in Benin. What was kept in calabash with ice and served with sugar and lemon tasted like Coca-cola.
Sorghum, maize and millet are produced in large quantities in Africa and has found use in composite flours as well as in various traditional foods such as “Uji”, a gruel/porridge cooked from flour, peanut powder, sugar, and water.
Bambara and around people eat Dégué which is mentioned as “millet gruel(porridge) mixed with curds, yogurt and honey”. Street vendors sell it with ice. It was so delicious.
