Kyinkyinga is a grilled meat skewer or kebab that is common and popular in West Africa. Kyinkyinga is a Ghanian dish, very similar to or synonymous with the Hausa suya kebab, also known as sooya, tsinga, chichinga, tsire agashi, chachanga or tankora.
It is prepared by coating the meat in tankora powder, a mixture of ground seasonings including dried hot peppers, ginger, and other spices, and peanut flour. The meat is then threaded onto a skewer, often interspersed with onions and bell peppers, then grilled. It has been described as a staple street food in Ghana.
