Ugandan Groundnut Sauce

Ugandan Groundnut Sauce

Variations on this hot sauce appear all over Africa, with the key ingredient being peanuts in any form. Here, peanut butter works well – either smooth or crunchy. Its most common usage is to spread it over fried chicken or fish or to serve it over rice.

½ pound dried fish,such as salt cod, coarsely chopped

4½ cups water

2 teaspoons peanut oil

2 onions, chopped

4 tomatoes, chopped

2 teaspoons cayenne powder

1 teaspoon Malawi Curry Powder

1 cup peanut butter

Salt to taste

Soak the dried fish in 2cups of water for approximately 1 hour, or until it becomes soft.Drain and pat dry. In a large skillet, fry the onions in the oil until brown, about five minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Add the fish, cayenne,curry, remaining water, peanut butter, and salt. Simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until the sauce thickens to the desired consistency.
