Sadza is the staple food for Zimbabwe.
- Put mealie-meal in pot. Add cold water to make a paste. Put pot on stove and add boiling water whilst stirring simultaneously.
- Keep stirring until rakukwata (it’s boiling). Cover pot, reduce heat and let it simmer for 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes, add more mealie-meal bit by bit and as we say it in our vernacular, mona sadza (mix). Be sure to do it well. When it’s just about to reach the consistency you want, cover it rishinyire (loosely translated- let is simmer) for 5 minutes. Your sadza is ready. Serve with your preferred relish.
