Before I went to Mali, I was really curious about what I was going to eat there. The result – I really enjoyed the food and gained so much weight from all the carbs... Rice, couscous, corn and millet are the grains used in most Malian meals. Rice is served with a sauce, usually onion sauce (Jabaji) or peanut butter sauce with vegetables and spices (tigedegenaw). Goat, beef, lamb, chicken and fish are added to the sauce or eaten separately when available. I really loved the grilled goat meat sold at the market and on the side of the road. It was so good! For breakfast I had fried dough (Farini), millet pancake or egg sandwich with Lipton tea or Nescafe. Nescafe has permeated throughout Mali. By the way when you eat with your hand, use your right hand. I want to find some good West African food spots in NYC! The photos are the food I had during my trip.
