Romazava Beef and Greens Stew

Romazava Beef and Greens Stew is the national dish of Madagascar. Romazava is very simple to make, with ingredients that are certainly found in every grocery store.

Madagascar is located in Southern Africa in the Indian Ocean, just east of Mozambique. Madagascar is the world's fourth biggest island and due to its isolation most of its creatures and plants exist nowhere else on earth. Formerly an independent kingdom, Madagascar became a French colony in 1896 but then regained its independence in 1960. The people who are from Madagascar are called Malagasy. The Malagasy are thought to be descendants of Africans and Indonesians who settled on the island.

Madagascar's economy is very fragile and the island is prone to flooding and other natural disasters. Most of Madagascar's food is imported. Romazava is made on special occasions and is not your typical everyday meal
