Domoda is a peanut stew and the national dish of the Gambia. In this recipe, I have used cattle, but you can use chicken or pork as well.

500 g beef cut into small cubes

1 large onion diced

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves of minced garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

1/8 tsp cayenne

3 large diced tomatoes

1/2 small can of tomato paste

2 dl peanut butter

4 tbsp beef stock

7.5 dl water

1 finely chopped chili (or more if you're a tough guy)

1 ltr pumpkin in small cubes (possibly sweet potato)

Salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a saucepan and sauté the onion until golden, before adding beef, cumin, cayenne and garlic. Saute until the steak is brown, before adding the tomatoes and frying for another 3 minutes. Add tomato paste, chili, peanut butter and stir everything together. Add the water and funds. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add pumpkin, cover and continue boiling for 35-40 minutes or until pumpkin is tender, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve hot with rice. Domoda tastes even better the next day.
