I routinely hear Tanzanians use 'gani' (in this case, it would be "chakula gani") ... are 'gani' and '-ipi' generally interchangeable or no?

in my experience there's a very slight difference. it mostly has to do with specificity, but generally they are interchangeable. I mostly use "gani" but sometimes use the -pi version if i'm stressing the noun class.
