Serves 4

3 cups water
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 cup maize meal


Place the water and salt into a pot and bring to the boil.

Mix together the milk and maize meal to make a slurry.

Once water is boiling, whisk in the maize meal slurry, then bring to a simmer.

Cover and allow to cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve with your choice of toppings, some of my favourites…

  • Milk, sugar and butter
  • Lemon juice and sugar
  • Peanut butter and honey
  • Orange juice and cinnamon sugar
