I chose this recipe because when I lived with my friend in London she cooked it for me and I really enjoyed it. I also like because it remind me of the good times that we used to have with her every time she cooked this dish. And it reminds me of Africa and my mum and the times we used to all sit and eat using our hands, how I miss those times!
