The only ingredient needed when making Konkonte is boiling water and the dried cassava flour. Once the water has come to a boil, the heat is reduced. The flour is added and stirred until all the water is absorbed. More hot water is added and kneaded until it has the desired texture. Kneading the dough into a smooth paste is the most difficult part of making Konkonte.  Kokonte is traditionally served hot with groundnut, palm nut, or okro soup.  Kokonte is is served with peanut butter soup locally known in Ghana as Nkatenkwan. It is also served with Palm nut soup also known in Ghana as Abenkwan.
