This month we have Suya kebabs, a very popular Nigerian barbecued street food featuring meat marinated in a dry rub of toasted peanuts and spices, such as chilles, pepper and ground ginger. Each malam (or street vendor) will have a special blend with its own unique flavour, fragrance and texture; our’s includes a trio of chillies - fruity habanero, cayenne and a numbing hot pepper - as well as garlic, paprika and black pepper.
It’s served with Jollof rice, a dish found throughout West Africa and thought to be the origin of the Cajun dish jambalaya. Also on the side is a peppered Wara cheese a delicious cottage cheese topped with a pepper and chilli oil, a simple salad and a hot pepper sauce to round off the meal. For dessert there’s a refreshing zobo (Hibiscus) ice served with watermelon - a huge favourite in West Africa, it makes a lovely dessert for an unusual but satisfying meal!
