Ugali Recipe

4 cups water
3 to 4 cups maize meal

Bring water to a boil in a pot. Add the maize meal and stir to prevent lumps. Add more maize meal to make a thick porridge. Keep stirring until the maize meal is well cooked. Tip out onto a plate - the ugali should hold its shape.

Best served hot with sukuma wiki.

4 servings.
