4 liters Water
5 cups white maize meal
Sadza is the shona word to describe a thickened porridge prepared from any grain and therefore similar to the ugali of Eastern Africa and fufu of West Africa.
How to Make Sadza:
- Boil 1 gallon (4 liters) of water.
- Put five cups of white maize meal in a sauce pan and add cold water to soak the meal.
- After the white maize meal is completely soaked, add a little more water and stir the mixture with a thick stick (or a big wooden spoon).
- Cook on a medium heat and stir. Add the boiling water slowly and keep stirring constantly. Make sure the mixture doesn’t stick to the pan.
- While heating, the maize meal will become smooth, like a smooth porridge.
- Bring to the boil, stirring constantly, and boil for 5 minutes, adding more maize meal flour.
