Goat Gari Pinon
The short way to describe the Pinon (or Eba) as fufu made with Gari (Gali). Gari is a west African made with grated cassava and have a finer consistency then the regular couscous. Gari can be used to make GariFoto (Galifoto), GariDochi (GaliDossi) or just be consumed with an cooked black beans and palm oil, okra stew, tomato stew, goat meat stew, Ademe, egusi soup …
Gari Pinon (or Eba) is Gari cooked in hot tomato broth. In some West African countries like benin and Ghana, the Gari is cooked on a medium heat but in Togo the gari is added to the hot broth (A Si Pinon). The gari soaks up the flavor of the tomato broth.
Traditionally the meat (chicken, goat, or beef) is boiled with spices (garlic, ginger, paprika…bouillon cube, salt) to tenderize it and the broth of the meat is use to cook the Gari Pinon. I use goat meat for my Pinon and serve it with some pepper, a quick tomato and onion cooked mixture and the fry goat meat.
