  • Step 2: To cook mafe you need to take the meat you prefer to have. In this case we can say it's chicken. So next you need to make seasoning that is called roofe in Wolof. So to make the roofe you need to take the garlic, onion, pepper, maggi and some vegetables like turnip, then put salt and blend it.
  • Step 3: Then cut some part of the chicken and put some of roofe in and this is called nokkos in senegal.
