Ugali is the meal that could be considered Tanzania’s national dish. It is stiff dough prepared with cornmeal (maize meal), cassava flour, sorghum or millet.
The dish is usually served with a sauce that contains fish, meat, cooked vegetables or beans.
Typically, it is eaten from a large bowl that is shared by all the people seated at the table.
A well-prepared Ugali is neither too sticky nor dry.
