Three-Meat Platter Must-Have in an Ivorian Eid Festival
Updated: Nov 22
Eid Mubarak! Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum.
In Ivory Coast and in most West African Muslim countries, we eat fried, spiced liver, kidneys and lambs on eid. Check out our three-meet platter below making the point. We normally eat it with bread. We ate ours with boiled yams with habanero pepper and salt. We also eat our delicious and spicy meat with some bread. Yum, masha'Allah!
Check out some Ivorian snacks, too.
#ChinChin aka Croquettes
#Caramel aka Peanut Brittle
#Bissap aka Hibiscus Flower Juice
This below is the bottom of the pot after you make cornmeal patties. Actually, any rice cooked in a pot made the old fashion way or patties you make—cassava, plantain banana, yucca root or yam patties have a gratin. To arrive at this product, you have to lower the heat on the pot until the gratin detaches itself from the pot. Let it cool down and then blend or pound it in a mortar with a pestle. Sugar to taste and eat the powder called Gratin Sec de Tô as a snack. Enjoy!
Hope you had a wonderful eid.
