    Oolala's Note:

    Adapted from Bill Odarty's cookbook called "A Sahara of African Cooking." I found this in " Down Jersey Cooking" submitted by Joyce Williams who has been researching her African-American roots. She said that when she prepared this recipe and served it at a church supper, it was so good, she got a marriage proposal...and his wife was standing right next to him! Moambe means stew in central Africa.

      This was an extremely good stew! I made a few changes to save time. I used skinned chicken thighs and didn't boil them at all. I used chicken broth I'd already got and simply cooked the whole lot in the oven for the 30 minutes. The chicken was done beautifully so I think the simmering for over an hour stage can be safely left out if you already have broth to hand. Other half loved the strew - beautifully nutty and spicey. Will cook again!
