Domada-Banjul-Gambian-recipe-1

Recipe Wednesday – Domoda (Peanut butter Soup) Banjul, Gambia

Gambians are big on social interaction, so it is not a rare sight to see families eating from communal bowls during meal time. This reverence for social interaction amplifies the importance of greeting in Gambia, so that if you decide to take a trip there, you get travel advice that includes ‘always greet with a right handed shake’. Right there is a great travel tip for you….now to what matters the most, experimenting with our taste buds. This week we will be enjoying the Gambian African recipe known as Domoda (Peanut butter soup) also known as Mafe/Durango depending on the language of each tribe. This culinary foodie delight is made up of peanut butter, beef or chicken and tomatoes. I encourage you to try eating in a communal bowl with friends, shared experiences help us to better appreciate the cultures of others.
