You cook cornmeal until it’s stiff enough to form into a mound. This requires a lot of stirring & patience, plus the proper ratio of cornmeal to water. The mound of ugali is then placed on the table for all to use. Pinch off a little piece & roll it into a ball. Flatten it & use it to scoop up the other food on your plate, such as stew. It’s great fun to eat, and, surprisingly, my daughter loves it!

sounds kinda like...
“hot water cornbread” – except not fried. where can I try some in H-town?!
I wish I knew.
Are there any restaurants specializing in African cuisine? I would think a city the size of Houston would.
Fou-fou sounds familiar.
I think it’s made from cassava or yams. Maybe millet too. I think it’s more specific about how it’s cooked than what it is.
can you tell im not from the USA?! :) but yr description makes it sound like great fun. a sharing sort of family meal….i can imagine a group of people sharing a meal such as this could not help but become closer. kind of like eating hot corn-on-the-cob with lots of melted butter and salt; its just not possible to do and to look haughty and dignified ;-)
According to my mom,
my grandfather loved cornmeal mush
which is why I think I love polenta
I especially love to put polenta
in a bread pan
and after it cools
cut and fry it…
top it with tomato sauce and grated cheese
(or maple syrup)
Tomato sauce & maple syrup??
LOL! Just kidding, I know you meant instead of grated cheese and tomato sauce! Sounds yummy! I love polenta too!
yeah, polenta is what I was thinking... same thing
There’s a recipe for a yummy, spicy African stew in my favorite cookbook, Passionate Vegetarian. Okay, I looked it up: page 211 “Groundnut & Greens Palaver with Black-Eyes.”
This would be excellent over ugali.
Sounds yummy! I’m a collector of recipes, so I’ll have to check that out!
(The fun thing about ugali, though, is that it’s used as a utencil!)
Totally unrelated note: I notice your current avitar looks just like a book cover for something I read once: Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. Must be the same artist.
What do you mean, "It sounds yummy?"
It sounds like something you get in your left testicle…well, ok you don’t…but I* might.
“Man, I got ugali in my left nut…probably from that African chick I been balling…”
It might *taste good…but is sounds scarry…
Hey…just like that African chick…she might taste good but…well, never mind…
Ugali and sadza
Girl this looks like sadza. My ex use to cook it everytime. It’s my alltime favorite meal!!! I could eat this stuff everyday. Looks yummy!!!
