Suya


Suya

Suya, is a shish kebab like food popular in West Africa, originally from the Hausa people of northern Nigeria and Niger. Suya is generally made with skewered beef mixed with a lot of hot spices and or peanuts. It is enjoyed in most parts of Nigeria, although it is believed to have originated from the Hausa/Fulanis of the north. Commonly found as a late night delicacy, it is also sold during the day.

Suya has proved to be an extremely popular evening snack sold by many roadside vendors and restaurants. Suya is very nutritious and high in protein. It comes in many variations of spices, such as mild, normal, and hot.

It is also commonly packed with onions and tomatoes and Masa or Waina (a locally made rice pattercake).
