My husband is Ghanaian and we use a similar recipe with a few minor changes. We add 4 Maggi cubes and add a Scotch Bonnet pepper to add a little heat to it. Delicious!

Delicious Mary, simply delicious. My dh & I really enjoyed this tasty dish. I served the gravy over white steamed rice. What lovely flavor, a great comfort dish. We loved the heat in the tomato gravy. I only added the onions, next time I will add the green peppers also. Thanks for sharing a dish that I will be making again. Forgot to add that I also garnished my baked haddock with the gravy, it worked really well, a memorable combination :)
