Happy New Year KOKOFoodies! It’s so amazing to have you on that end and to be here this new year. We are still alive, we thank God. We need food, yes, and as always, we need to explore, so yes, Githeri is our delight for the weekend.
Githeri is a Kenyan staple food consisting of beans and maize that are stewed with onions, tomatoes, and sometimes potatoes or meat chunks. The stew vegetable dish is often flavored with cumin, turmeric, or chili powder.
It is traditionally served on its own, although it can be served with rice or crusty bread on the side. The dish originates from the Kikuyu tribe, living in Central Kenya, and we can say the stew dish is the Kenyan version of the Nigerian Ewa Adalu and the English Succotash. So How to Make Githeri?
Boiled Beans, Boiled Corn (boiled ones are used to avoid waste of time), Onions, Tomatoes, Garlic, Potatoes, White Pepper, Paprika, Cumin, Carrots, Cilantro and Cayenne Pepper or Tumeric, Salt, Seasoning Cubes and Meat Junks.
How To Make
1. In a pot, heat the oil and then throw in the onions and garlic, and sauté for about 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent any burns. Add in the tomatoes, curry, paprika, white pepper, meat chunks, cayenne pepper or tumeric and sauté for 1 more minute. Then, add in the drained boiled corn and beans, then add the alt and seasoning cubes.

2. Pour in about half cup of water bring to all to a boil, and let simmer for all the flavors to come together about 15 -20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Adjust for thickness, taste for salt and seasoning and your Githeri is done. Serve warm and throw in the cilantro.
We hope you enjoy this meal as you have a great weekend.
