Peanut Butter Gravy - Sierra Leone Flavours

Rich oniony peanut butter gravy
Cook Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 6 -8


  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 onions very finely sliced
  • 1 red (bell) pepper deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1.5 tsp of tomato puree
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Scotch bonnet chilli to taste
  • 1 small maggi cube crumbled (optional)
  • Salt to taste


  • Put all the ingredients together in a pot and bring to the boil.
  • Cover and reduce to a simmer for 75 mins stirring occasionally until the gravy is really thick and the onions fall apart in your mouth. Open the gravy for the last 10 mins of cooking to help thicken it.


Use the small maggi cube NOT the bigger jumbo cube. You can cook the gravy for less time depending on your taste. Keep an eye on the gravy toward the end as if too dry add in a tbsp of water.
