Toasted Ugali: Watch new recipe that's gaining popularity on TikTok

A new method of cooking ugali is gaining popularity on TikTok, fuelled by the rising number of food content creators on the platform.

Ugali meal

Departing from the regular method which has been used for decades, the new recipe challenges the norms by switching the order of ingredients to start with maize flour.

Creators who have tried the new recipe start by pouring maize flour into a dry sufuria and stirring for a few minutes before adding parboiled water and kneading till cooked.

They argue that the normal method of starting with water makes it hard to estimate the amount of maize flour required.

This new way, they say, allows one to better regulate the rate of consumption of the flour and prevents one from cooking too much ugali.

Despite the content creators touting the new method as the best thing since sliced bread, fans who claim to have tried the recipe were not as impressed.
