      This was delicious! We followed the recipe except that we doubled the banana and used canned diced tomatoes. Good blend of spices, flavorful but not overpowering. We will definitely make this again!

      We hosted an African dinner last night and had this soup as a starter. Everybody loved it: it is sweet and spicy, the chicken adds a little substance to it and the tomatos are just lovely. Will definitely make it again - a larger portion next time!

      I love this soup! My only advice is, if you are using dried coconut, only use half the amount (or even less), otherwise the soup will be too rich. Great recipe
