Kilishi is a version of jerky that originated in Hausaland. It is a dried form of Suya. Kilishi is a delicacy in Hausa Land, made from cow, sheep or goat meat after the removal of bone. Each of the selected muscles is then tediously sliced in to a sheet-like sizes of one metre or less for easy drying. The dried "sheets" of meat are then collected and kept for the next process. A paste made from peanuts called "Labu" is diluted with enough water, spices, salt and grounded onions and perhaps sweeteners in addition like honey to add sweetness. The already dried "sheets" of meat are then inmersed one by one into the "Labu" paste to coat it, whereafter it is left to dry for hours before roasting on a wire mesh. Kilishi can be kept for months without much change to its taste.[1][2]
