As I mentioned in another post – the daily cooking dilemma often leads to asking each other what we cooking for the day. It helps us get new ideas and recipes to cook the same old ingredient.
This is a dish we never cooked whilst growing up. Its a very African (Xhosa) dish and some have it plain (as I cook it) and others a curry with meat (as I like it).
Samp is dried corn that has been chopped and stamped roughly. Imagine 1 corn kernel chopped into like 3 pieces and dried.
You will need:
1 cup samp and beans
Water (for boiling)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
Wash and rinse samp and beans. You can soak it for a few hours or overnight. Pour water into pot and add samp and beans. Boil till soft. The water will thicken as it lessens and the water will become white and look like a gravy.
