Ugali is a meal a corn cake or bread eaten by many people in Eastern Africa. Ugali is similar to Southern Africa's Mealie-meal, Nshima, and Sadza. In West Africa it is called Fufu.
U.S. to Metric and Metric to U.S.
6 cups of water
4 cups of maize flour or white cornmeal that has been finely ground
butter or margarine (optional)
Heat water to boiling in a saucepan. Slowly pour the corn flour into boiling water. Avoid forming lumps.
Stir continuously and mash any lumps that do form. Add more corn flour until it is thicker than mashed potatoes.
Cook for three or four minutes, continue to stir. (Continuing to stir as the ugali thickens is the secret to success, i.e., lump-free ugali.)
Top with a pat of butter or margarine, if desired.
Cover and keep warm.
Serve immediately with any meat, or vegetable stew, or any dish with a sauce or gravy.
