An African staple that’s also known as ugali, nshima, pap and phaleche. Accompanies a flavorful fish or meat prepared for dinner or lunch; thus, it purposely lacks flavor to allow the protein to shine.

Makes: 4 servings.


  • 6-7 scoops of mealie-meal
  • ¾ - 1 cup cold water
  • 3-4 cups boiling water


In the pot mix mealie-meal with cold water.

Meanwhile, in another pot, bring 3-4 cups of water to a boil.

Mix both pots together then bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add mealie-meal ½ tsp at a time and stir well, repeating until desired consistency is reached.

If desired, cover again and simmer for 5 minutes.
