The cooking challenge for Africa was to find diverse recipes without repeating the generic chicken and rice dishes. Tristan leafed through his Atlas and decided on Ghana and Guinea Bissau for todays recipes.
Guinea Bissau’s Maffe Tiga sounded a little like an Indonesian or Filipino recipe using peanut butter for the sauce. Tomatoes mixed in added an exotic touch.
Inigo on the other hand was focused on the carbohydrates: Rice Jollof from Ghana was his dish to prepare. “The recipe sounds like risotto, but mixing in the tomato paste in the rice is weird,” he commented.
After the rice absorbed the chicken broth, vegetables were added to the Ghana risotto mixture. Inigo was hungry to taste his Rice Jollof but the rice still needed some cooking time. Soon enough the dish was ready to join the Mafe Tiga. Delicious!
