Maffe is a popular West African street food dish, commonly known as 'groundnut stew'. It has a tomato base which is thickened and flavoured with nuts, here in the form of peanut butter and ground almonds. We've used the warm spice blend ras el hanout with chicken and sweet potatoes to produce a stew that mimics a slow cook, but ready in no time!
