Dola Sukuma Wiki Ya Nyama Na Ugali


  • Dola Maize Flour or Dola Gold Maize Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Oil
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. Ginger
  • 500 gm. Beef
  • 2 blended tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tbsp. Paprika Powder
  • 2 Beef cubes
  • 1 Bunch Sukuma Wiki


  • Add 2 tbsp. Oil to the frying pan then add 1 large chopped onion, 1 tbsp. Garlic, and 1 tbsp. Ginger and mix with the beef. Add 1 cup of water and simmer in medium heat
  • Once the water from the meat has dried up, add 2 blended tomatoes, 1 tbsp. Tomato Paste, 1 tbsp. Paprika Powder, and 2 beef cubes, and mix the thick stew. Let shimmer
  • Add 1 bunch Sukuma Wiki and mix well with a cooking spoon
  • Bring 4 cups of water to boil in a sufuria. Add 2 cups of maize meal to the boiling water. Adding a little bit of the maize meal to the water ensures that the water starts to roar which makes the perfect ugali. Stir using a wooden mwiko/ spatula and try to break any lumps apart.
  • Add the remaining flour and get stirring. Using the mwiko/spatula, smoothen out any lumps that may have formed. If the ugali is not hard enough, add more flour. Lower the heat and keep working the ugali against the sides of the pot, getting rid of any lumps and also making sure it is evenly cooked.
