Yassa Poulet

Yassa Poulet

We read the story of ‘Rapunzel’,classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale,retold and illustrated by Rachel Isadora in the lush backdrop of African village using collages of painted,textured paper.

Keeping up with our African meal night,we made Yassa Poulet to go with Jollof rice.’Poulet’ is French for Chicken.It is very popular dish of Senegal.This is what i learnt about this dish.

  • Lemon juice and onion is star of the dish.Lots of it.
  • It is spicy dish but i kept the heat very minimal because of kids.
  • I also made the dish using only chicken breast,though we would prefer the dark meat for future.
  • I had to improvise the dish with chopped cabbage,since i didn’t had tons of onions.
