    Recipe: Mukimo

    Summary: Mukimo is a traditional Kikuyu dish. It is served at all major ceremonies especially weddings, funerals and fundraisings. A celebration is incomplete without this delicacy.


    Fresh green maize (shelled).
    Kahurura(the tender young leaves of a pumpkin). Spinach is an alternative if pumpkin leaves are not available
    Irish Potatoes
    Butter or margarine

    Boil green maize for at least two hours or until they are cooked.
    Add the peeled and diced potatoes but do not mix. Place the Kahurura on top of the potatoes after you have removed its stem and thoroughly washed the leaves.
    Sprinkle some salt
    Let the mixture boil for another 30 minutes to 45 minutes until the potatoes and the greens are well cooked. Remember, never stir this mixture otherwise you will make a mess out of your Mukimo.
    Once satisfied that the maize, potatoes and greens are well cooked, drain the remaining water and let the mixture simmer under low heat.
    Mix and mash the mixture. Add some margarine to give the Mukimo a delicate flavour. Ensure that the maize, potatoes and kahurura are evenly spread.
    The final product should have a very fine texture, is light green in colour and should neither be dry nor very moist. Some people like it when the maize remains intact(whole).
    Serving Tips
    Serve with Kachumbari,beef stew or some vegetable soup of your choice. Can also be served with tea in the morning.
