Akoho sy voanio recipe
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Slice the tomatoes into small cubes. Set aside.
Shred the coconut into a clean cloth. Fold the cloth around the shredded coconut.
Wet the cloth using a glass of warm water. Squeeze the cloth and the shredded coconut to extract coconut milk. Discard the shredded coconut.
If obtaining/shredding a fresh coconut is not possible, you may substitute a can of unsweetened coconut milk instead.
Add a small amount of oil to a frypan. Saute chicken until done over medium heat.
Add onions to the pan. Continue stirring over medium heat until the onions are brown.
Add ginger, tomatoes, and garlic to the pan. Saute together briefly over medium heat.
Add coconut milk. Mix well. Reduce heat.
Simmer over low heat for thirty minutes.
Serve with rice and salad. Enjoy!
