Dambu With Veggies

Dambu is made of grits from whole grains-maize, wheat, barley, sorghum etc. It looks like couscous.The grits is called "tsaki" in Hausa. Depending on which grain you use, you can make Dambu from "tsakin masara" (maize grits) or "tsakin alkama" (wheat grits).

Dambu can be cooked plain and eaten with any soup. You can eat it with local Hausa soups such as "miyar taushe", "miyar kuka" or tomato stew. But it can also be cooked as "jollof" by adding protein, vegetables, oils and seasoning.

In this recipe I made Dambu with maize grits. I added shredded lean meat and vegetables to it. This makes it a wholesome meal. It can serve as lunch.

Try cooking dambu with any soup of your choice. Which type of dambu do you like and which soup do you prefer your dambu with? Share your experience with me in the comment section.

Happy cooking.

Mixing and Steaming the Dambu

To 1 cup tsakin masara (maize grits), add water. Add vegetable oil and salt. Mix thoroughly. Put mixture in a collander and cover with plastic bag or very light nylon cloth. Steam for 15 minutes. The dambu should be soft but not completely cooked.

Remove half-cooked dambu from steam. Add vegetables shredded boiled meat, seasoning and coarsely ground groundnuts. Add spring onions. Cover again and bring back to the steam. Steam for additional 10 minutes. At this point, a pleasant aroma of the groundnuts and spring onions becomes obvious. Remove from steam.

Serve hot as a complete meal.
