Peanut sauce deluxe

Domoda is a slightly spicy stew, based on peanut butter sauce. It is one of the most famous dishes in the national cuisine of the West African states of Gambia and Senegal, where you actually call it Mafé. The stew is one of the favorite dishes of locals and visitors alike, of course besides Benachin. (Recipe coming soon)

The stew can be made from beef, lamb, chicken, dried fish or just with veggies. Throughout West Africa it comes in many variations, but always tasty. Typically it is served with rice or couscous.

Serve with plain boiled rice or couscous!
Tipp: This hearty dish is believed to taste even better if you cook it one evening before.

Bon appetit!
