Suya, is a shish kebab like food popular in West Africa, originally from the Hausa people of northern Nigeria and Niger. Suya is generally made with skewered beef, fish, or chicken. The meat is rubbed-in with a dry spice mix, then barbecued. Suya is often served with a further serving of Suya peppers 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.
