Description Edit

In Uganda the cooking method most often used is wrapping the in banana leaves and dropping it into boiling water. salt is the basic seasoning - anything else by way of flavoring depends on what’s at hand. Lacking a handy supply of banana leaves, we can best ensure retention of moisture and flavor by simple steaming.

  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup each chopped onions and chopped tomato (optional)

Directions Edit

  1. Season with salt. Sprinkle with chopped onions and tomato if desired. Place in a steamer or on a rack in a stewing pan. Cover bottom of pan or steamer with boiling water (keep water below ), and simmer until is cooked.
