Smoked Turkey Stewed in West African "gravy"


Imagine setting your Thanksgiving table with rich, smoky turkey thighs swimming in a creamy, west African "gravy" made from your choice of melon seeds (egusi) or pumpkin seeds. This dish is popular in Cote D'Ivoire, particularly the northern region, where melon seeds are traditional. NOTE: Be sure to finely grind the seeds, or the sauce won't thicken. It should look like milk, with just the teeniest, tiniest particles floating around. - Sasha @ GlobalTableAdventure
