Sukuma Wiki Recipe

Sukumu wiki, a dish of greens and tomatoes, is probably the most common accompaniment to ugali.



6 cups chopped fresh collard greens

3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

1 medium onion

1 cup stewed tomatoes

1 green chili pepper (seeded & chopped)

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon flour

1⁄2 to 1 cup water


Fill the bottom of a saucepan with about an inch of water.  Insert strainer filled with greens and bring water to boil over high heat. Turn down if water begins to evaporate. Cover and steam for 8 minutes. Chop the onion and tomatoes.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add onions, tomatoes, chili pepper and sauté until the onion is clear. Reduce heat to low. Add additional oil to prevent sticking.

Mix lemon juice, flour and 1⁄2 cup water in a small bowl until well blended.

Pour into onion mixture and mix well. Add 1⁄2 cup water, cooked greens, salt and pepper and mix well. Increase heat to medium, cover and cook for about 3 minutes.
