How would you call a stew with a combination of fish, meat, eggplant and tomatoes? Probably not fish stew or meat stew. I don’t know how to call this delicious stew in English but this stew happen to be one of the most delicious among Guinean stews. It is called “Magangni “in Guinea. And it is usually served with rice and cooked okra. The recipe is very simple to make yet so yummy.
