RECIPE: Umngqusho (samp and beans) is traditional and delicious!

INGREDIENTS

  • 500g samp (crushed maize), well rinsed. Cover with water and soak overnight if possible.
  • 800g dried sugar beans, well rinsed
  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • salt and white pepper, to taste
  • 45ml (3 tablespoons) butter or amafutha enkuku (chicken fat)

 

METHOD

  1. Place the samp and beans in a pot, cover with water and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and cook until soft, for at least two hours (if samp wasn’t soaked overnight, add another +-hour to cooking time )
  2. Do not stir or it will become excessively starchy, but keep checking to see that the mixture is not sticking to the bottom of the pot and add water if necessary. After about an hour, add the stock cubes.
  3. When the mixture is soft and cooked through, strain off the remaining water. Season and stir in the butter. Serve with boiled meat such as chicken.
