Kikanda also known as boudin, is a snack-like food prepared in the Republic of Congo from peanut flour, Kikanda root flour and onions. The mixture is lightly salted and boiled. In order to make sure that the center and top of the Kikanda are well cooked, a metal plate with hot charcoal is placed on the mixture. Once fully baked the ball of Kikanda is ready to be eaten. Kikanda can often be seen being sold on the street and in markets.
