Ugali, a porridge-like dish made with maize meal, is a staple dish in Kenya and in Tanzania.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Boil the water in a saucepan.
  2. Add salt if desired, and pour the corn flour slowly into boiling water, stirring continuously. Try to mash up any lumps that do form—the aim is to get a smooth consistency. A whisk makes this easier, as does sifting the flour.
  3. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until it has the consistency of thick oatmeal.
  4. Serve hot ugali immediately with any meat or vegetable stew, or any dish with a sauce or gravy.
