Nsima

On Sunday’s it is a tradition to go to Mama and Papa’s house, the parents of Joshua who started the program here.We had a traditional dish called Nsima. All it is is maize flour and water mixed together, it looked similar to mash potato!
Before eating you have to wash your hands in a bowl to clean them as this meal you eat with your hands. You are only allowed to use your right hand, as the left hand is known here for using in the bathroom. You then take a pinch of Nsima, roll it up and then add some relish (usually tomato’s) and eat.
