Koose is a popular street food in Ghana, and a similar variation is more popularly known as akara in much of West Africa. In fact, the origins of koose or akara are linked to the Hausa people, who are scattered across West Africa, but are mainly concentrated in Nigeria. Koose (kosai, akara, akla) is made from ground cowpeas or black-eyed peas.
