Suya, is a shish kebab like food popular in West Africa, originally from the Hausa people of northern Cameroon, Nigeria and Niger. Suya is generally made with skewered beef, fish, or chicken. The meat is rubbed-in with tankora, a dry spice mix containing powdered groundnuts, cayenne pepper, ginger, paprika and onion powder, then barbecued. Suya is often served with a further serving of tankora and sliced onions. In Ghana, suya is also known by the name chichinga.
Suya has proved to be an extremely popular evening snack sold by many roadside vendors and restaurants in many West African cities with a Hausa population.
A same type of food is known in Sudan called Agashe.
