Mchuzi Wa Nyama

Tanzanian stew can include a number of different meats: beef stew, goat stew, chicken stew or any other animal stew. Tanzanian stew dishes might also include a few other base vegetable ingredients such as carrots, peppers, peas, or potatoes. 

The sauce is usually formed from a light tomato base and accented with onion, salt and pepper and that essential mchuzi mix!

Chips Mayai (French Fries and Egg)

Grilled Maize

One of the most popular on-the-go snacks in Tanzanian is a cob of roasted maize. The corn is picked when it has become mature, so it’s a dry starch that is perfect for roasting over hot embers.

As the maize roasts, some kernels pop like popcorn while others blacken to a crunchy crisp. Some street stall vendors will supply a chili lime salt garnish for the grilled maize.
Some times you can paste butter on the maize and add spices like salt, pepper, Red chili powder and Lemon to get flavor 



Another Indian snack turned Tanzanian food are samosas – small triangular pockets of spiced meat or vegetables put in a pastry wrapper and deep fried to a golden brown. Squeeze a sprinkle of lime juice on samosas for ultimate enjoyment.

These golden snacks are available everywhere from sit down restaurants to local kiosks
