This Is What Brazilian EKO Called Acaca Looks Like

66

Acaçá (from Yoruba: àkàsà, also known as eko) is a ritual food central to ceremonies of Afro-Brazilian religions, specifically to Candomblé rituals. It is found in the states of Bahia, Pernambuco, Rio Grande do Sul, and Rio de Janeiro. Pai Cido de Osun Eyin stated that "life is sustained, and is renewed with the ritual offering of acaçá." It has at least two variations: a similar dish made of black beans (acaçá de feijão-preto) and a drink (acaçá de leite) also used in Candomblé rituals.
