Africa is a continent rich in culture, tradition, diversity and food recipes. Here are delicacies you should either invest your culinary skills in or try whenever you are chanced. You will definitely not regret it.


KENYAN/SWAHILI CHICKEN BIRYANI (KENYA)



It's a traditional Kenyan coastal cuisine and a rice-based dish (that is, it is eaten with rice) known for its unique aroma and flavor. It is similar to the Indian Biryani because the recipe was introduced to the East Africans by the Indians. It is basically cooked with chicken, mutton, beef, fish, eggs or vegetable.

JOLLOF RICE



Also called Benachin (one pot) by the Wolof people, the origin of jollof rice has for some time been a culturally sensitive issue between the Nigerians and Ghanaians since both countries claim to be the origin of jollof rice. This memorably delicious dish consists mainly of rice, tomatoes and tomato paste, vegetable oil, onions, salt, spices and chilli pepper (meats, fishes and vegetables like green peas, runner beans etc. may or may not be added)

KAPENTA AND SADZA (ZIMBABWE)



It's a popular Zimbabwean staple food. Kapenta is crisp-fried dish consisting of two species of small freshwater fish native to Lake Tanganyika. It can be dried or fresh and is stewed with onions, groundnut powder and tomatoes, served with fresh greens. Sadza is the mountain of delicious maize porridge that goes alongside the Kapenta.
