Umphokoqo / Uphuthu


Most people I know grew up eating umphokoqo or uphuthu. This is a basic, easy and delicious meal that’s economical and perfect for a hot summer’s day. I’ve seen so many variations of how people enjoy this meal. Some like it with amasi (sour milk), others with milk and others with a combination of milk and amasi. Some people serve it warm, others cold. If you’re like my sister, you enjoy it with cold milk and sugar. Don’t ask! Either way, you’ll enjoy this is a meal that holds a special place in my heart.
