KYINKYINGA – (Beef Kebab) Recipe
KYINKYINGA – (Beef Kebab) Recipe is a Ghanaian local name given to Kebab.
It is a popular street food in Ghana, Nigeria, and other West African countries.
Suya kebab is synonymous to Kyinkyinga in Nigeria.
Kyinkyinga is served in most restaurants in Ghana and sold at almost every street corner.
Kebab is one of those foods that are hardly made at home, and they usually taste better on the streets.
However, if you’re brave enough you can make better Kebabs from home.
I remember when we were kids my dad would take all 5 of us kids to this popular Bar / Restaurant in town.
In fact, the restaurant had some of the most delicious Kebabs in town.
Those were some precious childhood memories for me.
The good news is that you can purchase Kebab powder on this site!
Good ole Amazon has some great peanut powder you can use as a substitute.
Make sure you have it with a cool drink.
Moreover, you can find the ingredients from an African store near you.
