Sukuma wiki with ugali


The image shows a plate of sukuma wiki accompanied with ugali. Sukuma wiki is a Kenyan dish that is made with collard greens, tomatoes and onions and usually served with ugali. The name means “to push the week” in Swahili, because it is a cheap and nutritious vegetable that can stretch the budget . Ugali is a cornmeal-based dish, like a thick porridge, that is a staple food in Kenya and other parts of Africa. It is made by mixing maize flour with hot water until it forms a stiff dough-like consistency. It is usually eaten with soups, stews, or curries.
