Recipe: Sadza

As promised, here's a recipe for Sadza - with my own twist (aka, addition of a potato, as is common in a related West African dish called Pap).

Serves 4
  • 2.5 cups cornmeal 
  • 3.5 cups water
  • 3 potatoes, washed and diced
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
1) Cook potatoes, water, salt, and oil in a medium pot over medium heat until the potatoes are soft enough to mash. Water will remain.

2) Mash the potatoes in the pot. I used a fork because #keepingitclassy

3) Stir in the cornmeal and cook the pap for 15-20 minutes. Mix every five minutes or less with a wooden spoon, but don't worry about the crunchy crust that forms at the bottom of the pot - my big sister and I used to fight over it, it's arguably the best part.

Serve warm with veggies and meat.
