Day 39: Comoros and its Akoho sy voanio

Hello Raffies!

Spring is finally here and hopefully it is here to stay. Otherwise why not pack your things and enjoy the sandy beaches of the Comoros Islands?
Since I am passionate about active volcanoes, I was surprised to find out that the Comoros is a volcanic archipelago with some active it rocketed high up on my bucket list.

Anyways, enough we were going to enjoy some traditional Akoho sy voanio, which is chicken in coconut milk. In this website you can find the recipe and a few other recipes that are typical for the Comoros Islands. I am looking forward to trying them, because I really enjoyed this dish! And as the tradition requires, we accompanied it with some rice.


500g chicken breast, diced

1 big onion, chopped

2 medium tomatoes, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

3 cm fresh ginger, grated

1 can coconut milk

vegetable oil



Start by frying the chicken in some oil. Fry until brown, then add the onions and the garlic. Fry until soft.

It is time to add the tomatoes and the ginger and cook briefly. Now add the coconut milk and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve with steamed rice.

Have a great evening!
