Pupwe (Okra)

by M W N Simwala
(ZAMBIA)

Hello,


I am Namwanga from Northern Province. In my home village, we eat okra called Pupwe, and hey it’s delicious. We eat in collaboration with ifisashi and beans.

The following are ingredients:

4 table spoons of pupwe, Quarter tea spoon of soda, Salt to taste,Tomato

How to prepare

Just cut tomatoes and bring to boil for 10 minutes, put aside and get another pot, put half cup water and salt and after mixing well you start adding pupwe (okra) slowly until it is thick.

After that you add tomatoes and serve with your nshima

The the fun part of this okra is that you don't have to boil it or cook at all!

And my dear readers, you will never regret ever trying it.

Mrs. Simwala.
