Hello, for those of you asking because I too thought the same thing. This style of soup originates mainly in the West African region. Various countries including ones in which my mom comes from Togo, call it Mafe in which there are two style. Togolese mafe is simply tomato base sauce. However, if we were to mix it with peanut sauce and all other delicious ingredients we'd call it keke douse (kotokoli is not a written language unfortunately, thanks to the french) Now people from Mali would certainly call this Mafe in which is the same as keke douse. You can eat this with couscous, rice (my favorite style of rice broken rice) and meat of your choice. I am passionate about  the many cultures in which I come from and LOVEEE FOOD! I specialize in of course west African base cuisine and will soon be sharing some very cool recipies. I'll soon be opening up a west African food truck right here in NYC!!! Be on the look out for that if your in the area. Thanks  simplecookingchannel for having interest in our style of food.

To African people commenting on his style of making soup being different. You have to understand that we don't all cook the same. I certainly do not use any stock in my peanut sauce or any sauce at all. Rather, make everything from scratch. We all have different style of making things. I of course look at my mother's style of cooking and always try to replicate what she does because, mannn everyone including myself love her cooking!!!! HOWEVER, I had to learn that my style of cooking is very artsy! She says it her self. I experiment with what I find to be great. Like I would add bay leaf to my peanut sauce because, I like the flavour in which it brings out. Let's not bash and simply give credit for trying. Much love to all!

I'm dying to try this but I'm intimidated by it at the same time. If you could compare the taste to anything what would it be?

Thanks for video I made this soup and I thought it was really good & easy enough to prepare. Sounds like it's not like they would make in Africa according to some comments but I thought it was good maybe less complicated than authentic recipe not sure maybe an authentic version would have more complex flavors but I'm goin' for easy to prepare and good tasting here on my end so thanks again.

This looks amazing and simple to make! Thanks so much for this one. I love African peanut soup but I've been intimidated by complicated recipes I've read. This one actually looks both doable and delicious. I can't wait to try it out!
