Care for a little West African cuisine? Well, today wed like to share with you one of the most popular dishes in both Mali and Senegal. Mafé (or Maafé) is a traditional stew or sauce (depending on the water content) eaten in Senegal, West Africa. Maafé or Tigua degué is a peanut stew served with rice. It can be made with, chicken, smoked fish, or beef. Mafé is a relatively simple Senegalese recipe to prepare with a small number of inexpensive and readily available ingredients. It is a one-pot meal that requires very little preparation. It is best to prepare the peanut and tomato sauces before you start to make the dish, so as soon as the meat is seared they are on hand to mix straight in. Maafé has a deep and earthy flavor thanks to the peanut and the chicken and carrots give it substance. The tomato paste brings a freshness and lifts the dish.
