In Kenya, matumbo (tripe) is very affordable and it is actually really delicious if done well. Matumbo wet fry is often served with Ugali. My recipe requires you to boil the matumbo for 3-4 hours or until tender, but if you are in a hurry, you can use a pressure cooker and that will take you less than half an hour.
If you have lived in Kenya or visited the country, Mbuzi Choma (barbecued Goat meat) or Nyama Choma is something you must have had at least once. The meat is cooked over an open flame and traditionally served with ugali, kachumbari (a tomato and onion salad) and some salt. You just lightly dip the meat into the salt and enjoy the simple flavours.
We Kenyan’s love our fish and why should we not? We get fresh Tilapia fish from Lake Victoria in the Nyanza province. This Fried fish with tomato gravy is served with a Kenyan staple, Ugali. The fish is deep fried until crispy and coated with a thick tomato gravy.
A classic Kenyan beef stew accompanied with properly cooked Ugali is everyone’s favourite. My method is one that results in beautifully cooked tender meat, however, you may some times purchase meat that is hard and needs to be boiled before adding to the pot.
