Zambian Food: nshima & nkuku
Zambian Food: nshima & nkuku (chicken). Whatever animal based source on the nshima menu vegetables are almost always served on a typical Zambian meal.
Nshima is almost always eaten with two side dishes: a protein source, usually meat, poultry, fish or legumes (esp. beans); and a vegetable source, often rapeseed, chibwabwa (pumpkin leaves) or cabbage. The sides are known as relish and as Ndiwo or Umunani in most Zambian languages.
Nshima or nsima is a maize or cornmeal product and a staple food in Zambia and Malawi. It is made from ground maize (corn) flour known locally as mealie-meal and as unga in Zambian languages. Nshima is called ugali in East Africa, sadza in Zimbabwe, pap in South Africa and fufu in West Africa.
