Ghanna for lunch today.
Groundnut stew with a chicken thigh and egg. Served with a fu fu of cassava root and cornmeal.
I was looking all over for ground nut paste, couldnt find it. Finally went to a Senegalese store in West Philly. Walked in and the guy looked at me like I was crazy, I almost asked, what? Then he looked at me like I was even crazier when I asked him for some ground nut paste. He chuckled and went to the shelf to get a jar of peanut butter.
Yep, Africans call peanuts groundnuts. Makes sense I guess.
Anyway, nice creamy spicey sauce, goes well with the fu fu. If you ever try to make this stew use real peanut butter , not skippy or something like that. I get the fresh ground stuff from Trader Joes.
