What is "Doukona"?
While I was reading teacher Sarah's outside reading "Jamaica Kingcaid---Girl".
I looked up for the word "Doukona", it seems like not a pure English,I didn't know what it means.As I followed the trail to find out there is an explaination says :
"Doukona" is a variant of "dokunu" in Jamaica, a kind of pudding made from starchy food which is sweetened, spiced, and traditionally wrapped in plantain...or banana leaf. A favorite black dish, it can be boiled, baked,or roasted. There is a great deal of variance in the way African terms are rendered into all the languages and pidgins spoken in the Caribbean.
