Pilau fonio – a West African ingredient meets East African cuisine. Pilau is a traditional dish from Tanzanian cuisine. It is a particularly popular choice for serving on holidays like Christmas and is normally prepared with rice. But fonio is also wonderfully suited. Cinnamon, cardamom, pepper, allspice and a pinch of ginger transform the fonio into a veritable explosion of flavour. Recipe by Velvet & Vinegar, whose husband comes from Tanzania.
A hearty dish with peas and lots of vegetables. Martin provided us with this recipe that he developed himself. Martin Bokonon-Ganta used to work in the gebana warehouse and is originally from Benin. He grew up in the countryside in a large family. They lived mainly on what nature gave them, including various tubers and root crops as well as cereals. From an early age, he was regularly in the kitchen and thus learned how to prepare traditional dishes for the whole family. He shared with us his recipe for a milk fonio with vanilla.
