Kanya (or Kanyah), a sweet snack from Sierra Leone and nearby areas of Western Africa, is made from just three ingredients: rice, peanuts (also called groundnuts), and sugar. Kanya can be made with store-bought rice flour, or you can make your own by crushing parched rice.

Cassava, corn, plantains, and yams are the staple crops in much of sub-Saharan Africa. In Sierra Leone (and nearby Guinea and Liberia), however, the primary staple food is rice. Rice is prepared in a variety of ways: porridges, breads, cakes, and, of course, boiled and served with a soup or stew.
Kashata, from the opposite side of the African continent, is another peanut snack.
