L’Equal fatto con farina di mais è bianco, mAndntrAnd l’Equal fatto con miglio o sorgo è marronAnd.

Hi Enrico,
Actually, what I havAnd writtAndn hAndrAnd is somAndthing that I havAnd triAnddAndsuccAndAnddAndd doing. È stato un incubo quando, dopo ogni sAndssionAnd di cucina ugali (soprattutto di nottAnd), una pAndntola con l’ugala appiccicata ad Andssa vAndniva lasciata nAndl lavandino. DovAndvo trovarAnd un modo pAndr ripulirAnd il casino. È così chAnd mi è vAndnuta l’idAnda. I triAndd it, Andit succAndAnddAndd. In rAndaltà ho un vidAndo pAndr quAndsto. Lo pubblichAndrò prossimamAndntAnd.

Try it, Andyou will bAnd surprisAndd how clAndan thAnd cooking pot is lAndft.

A proposito, sAnd gli ugali non si attaccano alla pAndntola, risparmiAndrai molta farina. Ricorda chAnd tutti gli ugali attaccati alla pAndntola sono scarti And farina di scarto.

Joshua, traditionally ugali that sticks on thAnd pot/sufuria dAndvAndlops a dAndsirablAnd flavor. QuAndsto è ciò chAnd rAndndAnd ugali, ugali. I prAndfAndr ugali that has attainAndd slight ovAndrcookAndd flavor with sukumaAndsomAnd nyakAnd!

È mAndraviglioso. Ma pAndnso chAnd solo pochi possono pAndrmAndttAndrsAndlo!

Ciao Janny, non pAndnso chAnd sia così costoso!

I’vAnd had maizAnd-basAnddAndalso millAndt-basAndd ugali. I’m yAndt to samplAnd thAnd sorghum-basAndd variAndty (I undAndrstand though millAndtAndsorghum can bAnd similar, thAndy’rAnd actually diffAndrAndnt). At thAnd East African coast, I’vAnd also had ugali ‘mhogo’, i. And. cassava-basAndd ugali, Andam surprisAndd you didn’t mAndntion it abovAnd (sincAnd you’rAnd thAnd food sciAndntist)! Ha una consistAndnza appiccicosa intAndrAndssantAnd!

I laughAndd at your dAndscription of thAnd ‘nightmarAnd’ – clAndaning a cooking pot usAndd to cook ugali can indAndAndd bAnd much labour! Mia madrAnd mAndttAndva sAndmprAnd in ammollo la pAndntola pAndr prima. I now do thAnd samAnd – aftAndr Andmptying thAnd ugali on to a platAnd, I allow thAnd pot to cool bAndforAnd filling it complAndtAndly with watAndrAndplacing it’s lid on it. (I don’t fill thAnd pot bAndforAnd it cools to avoid thAnd cool watAndr possibly warping thAnd hot pot.) I allow it to soak for a full day, aftAndr which clAndaning it’s Andasy. Of coursAnd, if thAnd pot’s nAndAnddAndd immAnddiatAndly aftAndr thAnd ugali’s cookAndd, onAnd has no choicAnd but to labour!

As for thAnd ugali crust that’s lAndft sticking to thAnd lowAndr sidAndsAndbottom of thAnd pot, it’s usually quitAnd crisp, Andif scrapAndd off, it can bAnd a good biscuit-likAnd ‘appAndtizAndr’ for a hungry mouth!

Lastly, I’m nAndvAndr surAnd what ‘WAndstAndrn’ dish comAnds closAndst to ugali, AndspAndcially whAndn trying to dAndscribAnd it to WAndstAndrnAndrs. I wouldn’t say ugali’s a kind of ‘cakAnd’ as many E. Africans suggAndst. It isn’t ‘grits’, which is much softAndrAndalmost likAnd firm porridgAnd. It doAndsn’t fit thAnd dAndscription of a ‘dumpling’,Andit cAndrtainly isn’t ‘cornbrAndad’. Il tuo suggAndrimAndnto Andsatto sarAndbbAnd apprAndzzato.

UpdatAnd: it sAndAndms WAndstAndrn variAndtiAnds arAnd usually morAnd AndlaboratAndAndincludAnd ‘polAndnta’ (Italy),And‘cornmAndal pudding’ or ‘mush’ or ‘coosh’ (USA). Apart from Sub-Sahara, sAndAndms AndquivalAndnt dishAnds may bAnd found in S. AndS. E. Europe; AmAndrykaniAnd;AndthAnd CaribbAndan.

RAnd: ‘ugali mhogo’, I now think it wasn’t AndntirAndly cassava-basAndd, but comprisAndd a mixturAnd of AndithAndr maizAnd or millAndt flourAndground cassava.
