Rice with chichinga (suya) spiced domedo

I love left overs. Some such as these (the Ghana gravy, Ghana salad and domedo) can all come together to create a rather interestingly basic versatile dish. The various flavours as well as the convenience of throwing the ingredients together in less than 20-30 minutes makes this a great dish for when you can't hang out in the kitchen for too long.

The addition of suya to roast pork is not traditional. This is mainly becouse pork is traditionally a no no in the Moslem communities who gave the world suya spice.

Domedo or “Do-m3-do” as it is correctly pronounced (m3 as in te in tell and do as in the toa in toad) is grilled pork popular as night time street food in Ghana. Like many African recipes there are are numerous variations and styles. This domedo recipe was inspired by domedo I tasted about two years ago and made by my Auntie Harriet.
