I had a good laugh when preparing these maguru (tripe). After I had washed them and cut off excess fat and was ready to boil them my 5 year old daughter took one look at them and was flabbergasted – astonished what this was all about. My other four year daughter concurred with her. I told them to wait and see and that they were going to eat it. Supper time came and after they both took one bite each they said it was delicious. So they did eat them after all. So if your kids don’t like the other maguru stew recipe maybe you will run into better fortunes with this one.
