Ugali - where can I get some?

I am keen to try some ugali, which apparently is a staple in Kenya. Where in London/UK can I get some? Holland & Barrett carries generic maize flour - is this the same thing?

And what is the best way to prepare once I've procured some?

Any experiences shared appreciated!

  • or try polenta instead 

  • Funny you should say that FB. I saw this last night and found the answer in about 30 seconds. We must be internet guniusesimage

  • I doubt that this ingredient is the key to the Kenyans success.

    I'd rather bet my money on the fact they probably train well over 100 miles a week and live at altitude.
  • Fat buddha - what makes you think I haven't done at least some homework? shop4mamakenya has the product for under 2 quid but charges another 10 quid for delivery. Thanks for nothing.

  • This thread is turning ugali now

  • Handbags!!



    I didn't see anything in the original question that stated specifics on prices / delivery charges etc.

    and your point there is??  if you'd said you wanted to know where to buy it and not get ripped off with delivery charges, the I might not have posted as I did.  but you didn't did you??  

    always a pleasure to help those who can't post an specific question....image

    anyway - as I said - just use polenta instead.  you can buy various grades from coarse to fine.  and if you want to know where to buy it, then I think I have supplied a useful link to help you out.......image

  • I lived in Kenya and ate ugali everyday - it was school lunch not my choice.

    it is horrible, has not taste, it is white and solid when you make it.  the polento I have had is yellow but I think you get diff grade/ varieties of flour. Polenta was also not very nice but not as bad as ugali 

  • polento? new one on me

    Polenta you have to add lots of flavour to it. Then you have something nice. 

  • What's wrong with just eating regular food? I'd rather have a nice big juicy steak with green beans and carrots!

  • You can afford to eat meat? You rich buggerimage

  • I do have to catch it myself though!

  • crisps and cocktail sausages? anyone? Pizza?
