Supu Ya N Dizi

A Tanzanian dish, translated it is Curried Chicken and Banana Stew.


  • 4 lbs of chicken pieces
  • 3 TBSP peanut oil (I’m going to try it with truffle oil)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3-4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2.5 TBSP hot curry powder
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon To The Moon
  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 C shredded coconut
  • 4 C chicken stock
  • 2 under ripe bananas, peeled & sliced


  • In a large, heavy pot, brown the chicken in the peanut oil. Drain chicken on paper towels and set aside.
  • Saute the garlic, onion and celery in the remaining oil then add the curry powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Add To The Moon to the saute mixture.
  • Add chicken, tomato, coconut and stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is fork tender.
  • Remove chicken from pot, debone and add back to stew.
  • Add the bananas and simmer for about 10 minutes.
