Maize Upgrade: Soft Ugali with Beef Stock

Maize Upgrade: Soft Ugali with Beef Stock

You can never go wrong pairing your stew, grilled meat, or greens with a piping hot piece of ugali. We all know ugali is a simple mixture of water and maize flour, but this recipe combines stock and maize flour to give you ugali that tastes great even on its own. 

Ugali is a popular dish made from maize flour and popularly served with traditional greens and a protein of choice. Though there have been a few reiterations of it, such as ugali fries and ugali balls, this particular method of making it stays true to the traditional method with just a simple swap of the water for your favorite stock.
