Gambia – Domoda www.myhungrytum.


Ingredients: 2 cups of peanut butter 1 large onion (chopped) 2-4 diced whole chili peppers (depending on your preference for heat) 2 liters water 2 whole lemons 2 cubes Maggi or Bouillon 4 medium bitter tomatoes (if available) or 4 tbsp tomato paste or 1 can diced tomatoes (1 of the three)

2lbs beef or chicken 1/2lb pumpkin or other squash/gourd 4tbsp tomato paste 2 medium fresh tomatoes Salt and pepper to taste Preparation: Wash and cut meat into bite size pieces (chicken should be cut into larger pieces). Lightly sear the chicken in vegetable oil with the onions In a cooking pan, boil the meat, onions and chopped fresh tomatoes in water for 10 minutes. Add peanut butter and other ingredients, bring to boil stirring occasionally. Reduce heat after 10 minutes and simmer for 45 minutes. Serve with plain boiled rice. Notes: I adapted this recipe to include elements of the Congo Cookbooks version of Domoda. Here is the link to that recipe. If you are using chicken then make sure you sear the chicken in a little oil or fat before boiling. The dish is also referred to as 'Durango' in Mandinka and as 'Mafe' by the Wollofs of Senegal.
