I'm not sure about this in all honesty. But I was raised to never turn a frown unless you try it. So I'll be fixing this soon..

I also make this dish from Gambia, Africa. Instead of chicken broth, I use a full jar of peanut butter, and a can of tomato paste with crushed red pepper and salt (optional). I will have to try this your way. It sounds yummy!
