Cuisine - African

This pan-African soup is both cold and hot at the same time.  The chiles add the heat, and it is very refreshing in hot weather.  The chiles help to cool down the body.  Serve it as a first course with fresh bread.

There are many parallels between fish soup and bouilabaisse, which is popular in southern France.  Tunisia has one of the richest fishing areas in North Africia.  Any kind of fish and shellfish can be used but avoid oily fish such as mackerel or sardines.
This dish from Ghana is delicious and easy to make.  The hot chilies are countered by the tomatoes and the crab.  Serve this dish with hot, cooked rice.
This recipe is from Tanzania, East Africa.  Even though soups and stews are common throughout Africa, this recipe shows the Indian influence with the addition of curry.
The use of curry is a more recent addition to West African recipes.  Curry mixes well with the many clasical African ingredients to create modern versions of the tradition foods.  The hot curry powder blends nicely with the coconuym milk to create a tangy Nigerian soup, tempered with the mild taste of the coconut milk. 
This soup recipe originated in South Africa, and the curry flavor is thought to have come from the influence of the many East Indians brought into South Africa to work on the railroads.  Where there are groups of people with specific food tastes, ther are bound to be crossovers into the existing cuisine of a place.

Ethiopian food is unique in its flavors and is flavored with chiles rather than curry.  When you have a chance ot eat at an Ethiopian restaurant, go with several people and order different dishes, and make sure to include Ethiopian Chicken Stew.  You will find the mean includes Injera Bread that is used to scoop up the food, rather than forks.  Serve the stew the same way when you make it.
