UJI YA UKWAJU NA NDIMU (TAMARIND & LEMON PORRIDGE)

I love my porridge sweet and tangy and this is exactly what this Uji (porridge) is! I recently made some UKWAJU Juice and I knew this was the first thing I would be using the juice for. Most of the time people tend to think that Uji is usually for kids but its healthy, delicious and nutritious. This uji I made using Wimbi flour thats filled with lots of nutrients for the body, both kids and adults! Rich, creamy and thick, what more would you want from hot uji on these cold days?

INGREDIENTS

1/4 Cup Wimbi Flour (Soghurm Flour)

2 Cups Water

1/4 Cup Ukwaju Juice

2 Teaspoons Sugar

Juice from 1 Lemon

METHOD

Add flour in bowl and enough water to cover it. Mix with water to form thin paste. Heat water until it boils completely

Add the flour water paste mixture and immediately start stirring vigorously to make sure there are no lumps in the mixture

Keep stirring the uji as you add water little by little, still stirring. Stir until the uji (porridge) starts to bubble. Add the ukwaju juice, lemon juice and sugar. Let bubble 5 minutes so the uji thickens. Serve immediately
