Recipe for cooking Ugali

Sure, here's a recipe for Ugali, a staple food in many African countries, particularly in East Africa.


  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of maize flour (also called cornmeal or polenta)


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  2. Gradually add the maize flour to the boiling water, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to prevent lumps from forming.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and continue to stir the mixture until it forms a stiff dough-like consistency. This should take about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Cover the pot with a lid and let the ugali cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  5. Once the ugali is cooked, remove it from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  6. Wet your hands with cold water and shape the ugali into a ball or disc. Ugali is typically served in a communal dish, and pieces are broken off by hand and dipped into stew or sauce.

Enjoy your Ugali!
