There certain dishes that my mama could never make me eat when I was a kid. Most times it was the super healthy stuff like dark leafy greens, pulses like ndegu (green grams) , cow peas,   ngwaci (sweet potatoes) and definitely nduma (arrow roots)

I hated nduma. Up till now I do not have a liking for ndumas. I will take ngwaci any day over ndumas. I really do not like how they taste. They are a bit like ugali, just something, I believe, people eat and love because they have had it all their lives not because it’s so tasty. It is super healthy too. So I guess that makes them quite a win.

Coz nduma is not something I like, I rarely eat them. When I make them at home the Mr will enjoy them. For me I have to do a little something extra to them to to make them more palatable or interesting. Frying them in butter makes them really tasty. But adding some onions and eggs to it. Just makes it 10x better. Let me know what you think.

Happy cooking!
