“POSTED FOR ZWT 4. Thanks to Mark Tanner who wrote this down. All genuine African recipes (apart from in the cities and top hotels) are usually severely simple. It is a poor continent and people use what they have at hand. This is a type of bread, with unusual ingredients. As I had gleaned these recipes from other sources, I do not take responsibilty!! Most of these recipe were written down by visitors to these regions. Have fun! (Prep time does not include soaking the chickpeas).”
