Daddawa refers to an African black, fermented paste which is made from the flat beans of the locust tree. This is a different tree from the European locust tree, which produces Carob beans. Daddawa, also known as Iru or Ogili, is stored in hard cakes. It is extremely smelly, but adds a wonderful flavor to sauces. Daddawa is sold in cakes, balls or bouillon cubes, only from West African grocers. If not available, Daddawa can be substituted with Maggi Sauce .
