"Tigadeguena" is a popular dish in Mali which is chicken in peanut sauce. It was definitely my first pick when I was searching for a dish to make for class the next week. My undying love for chicken was also a great motivator to creating this dish and so I immediately set out to find the ingredients in good time.

I discovered other great dishes from Mali worth trying out:
Maasa- these are sweet millet fritters served as a snack or as an accompaniment to soup.
Akara- this is a dish of fried bean balls.
Couscous de Timbuktu- these are granules of wheat cooked by steaming.
Meni-Meniyong- this is a sesame honey sweet.
Kulikuli- these are deep fried peanut biscuits
Djablani- it is a popular West African beverage made of hibiscus juice and ginger. Perfect for quenching one's thirst under the scorching Sahara sun!
