How To Prepare Phutu Porridge

Phutu is a traditional South African porridge made by steaming maize meal until it develops a crumbly, grainy texture.

 

It is one of the staple foods in the country, and it’s regularly consumed by most cultural groups.

When served, phutu is typically accompanied by vegetables, sour milk, beans, or meat.

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

Maize meal

Water

Salt

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO PREPARE PHUTU PORRIDGE

In a large saucepan pan, pour in water, add the salt and bring to a boil under high heat. Turn down the heat once the water starts to boil.

Immediately add in the maize meal. I have used the Nyala maize meal of choice.

As soon as the maize meals hits the water, begin stirring with a fork or a wooden spoon.

Continue mixing with a fork or wooden spoon until the water starts to evaporate. It should start forming a crumbly texture. (To make the mixture of the more thick, add more maize meal and to make the mixture more weak, add more boiling water.)

Add in the butter and stir.

Phutu goes well with Curries, Chakalaka, Chutneys, Braais or as a side to a meal.
