There are several Gambian dishes worth a try. Bechanin or Jollof rice is a tasty pilaf with tomato puree and vegetables. Base Nyebe is a thick and richly flavoured stew of beef with beans and other vegetables, usually served with Chere, which is steamed millet flour balls.

 Gambian Domoda is meat stewed in groundnut puree and is served with rice. Plasa consists of meat and smoked fish, cooked in palm oil with leafy veggies and is usually served with Fou-Fou, which is trashed up cassava. A delicious sweet dish called Churagrete is porridge made of pounded groundnuts, rice and milk.
