Uji wa Pilipili manga mainly prepared during Ramadan, but for us who grew up along the cost we make this porridge any time of the year.
After spending the whole day fasting, most Muslims will have something hot and light to drink before dinner to warm up their stomachs. Uji wa pilipili manga is one of the most favored porridge during Ramadan.
This porridge has a distinct taste, you can never know how good it taste until you try it. The mixture of black pepper, sugar and lime create a peppery sweet and sour taste. This is my favorite for a light breakfast.
- 5 cups of water
- 1 cup Maize flour
- 2-4 Tbsp lime juice
- 5 Tbsp sugar
- ½ – 1 tsp Black pepper
It is always nice to first mix half of the flour, this is because different brands of maize flour differ. Some brand could have fine flour and some a little course, and they all need different amount of water. Since we are using 5 cups of water, one brand may need a little less flour than the other. Just follow the video.
