Ifisashi ~ Zambian Dish | Peanut Spinach Curry

Ifisashi is a traditional Zambian curry made for mixed greens, veggies & peanuts. This is a thick stew served with Nshima, the staple of Zambia. You can also serve it along with rice & polenta or your choice of main dish too. Ifisashi doesn't  need any oil & that makes it's cut in to healthy dishes for me. You can add any of your favorite veggies to make it much tastier.
