How to Make Kenyan Chapatis

For today’s post we will offer the second of two recipes for making traditional and authentic Kenyan staples, and, next up, is how to make Kenyan Chapatis.

How to Make Kenyan Chapatis

Kenyan Chapatis

Kenyan Chapatis are served, much like Ugali, with almost every Kenyan full meal. As with Ugali, Kenyan Chapatis are an “edible utensil” used to break portions off and scoop up the meal entrees and pop the morsels into your mouth. Perhaps the most simple, and easy Kenyan food recipe you will come across, Kenyan Chapatis will be essential and a fun addition to any Kenyan (or other African) meals.

Ugali

Kenyan Ugali is one of the country’s two most common staples that go with nearly every meal. Chapatis are the other staple, and that will be our next post.

Most Africans have some version of this kind of staple. Ghanaians, for instance have banku, fufu, and kenkey. Nigerians have their version of fufu, and so on. But as always, each African country has its own special spin they put on their “edible utensil”. Ugali is broken off in small bits, formed into a scoop shape, and used to dip into stews, soups, salads, etc., then the whole yummy morsel goes into the mouth. If you are going to prepare an authentic Kenyan meal, you simply must make some Kenyan Ugali to go with it.

Ghanaian Fufu

For today’s post we will continue with recipes for making traditional and authentic Ghanaian staples, and next up is how to make fufu.

Ghanaian Fufu is traditionally made from cassava root (Yuca Root) and plantains. In Nigeria, fufu is mostly made from boiled cassava and unripe plantain beaten together, as well as from cocoyam. Recently, these products have been pre-manufactured into a powder/flour that can be mixed with hot water to obtain the final product—thus taking away the laborious chore of beating it in a mortar with a pestle—a long pole with a flared pounding end on it—until the desired consistency is obtained.

I had the pleasure of pounding Fufu a while back. It is an arduous task, but one that can be fun if you are in good company. Check out The Old Silly pounding Fufu with Fafali, his native Ghanaian wife.

pounding fufu

In Western and Central Africa, the typical method is to serve a mound of fufu along with a soup or stew dish. After washing your hands, you pinch off a small piece of fufu and make an indentation with your thumb. This cavity is then dipped into the soup, and the whole ball is eaten. As with Banku and Kenkey, Fufu is not only a food, but serves as a utensil as well.

How to Make Banku-

Banku is a fermented food, and is one of the basic staples – probably the most popular – taken with meals in Ghana. It is actually a kind of “edible utensil” used as a spoon of sorts … you break off small bits of the dough, form the piece into a soft little cup-like shape, then scoop up bite sized morsels of the main dish, and then pop the whole yummy delight in your mouth.
