- 300g samp (manhunchu), cooked
- 1 small onion, chopped

So after having rediscovered samp (manhuchu) after over 2 decades of neglecting it, I must say I’ve fallen in love with this high fibre whole grain starch. I decided to play around with it a little and make something similar to fried rice. I must say, it was a hit and went down a treat with the family. It’s a quick meal which can be done in no time. It especially works well with left over samp. However, if you don’t have any left over samp you can still prepare it the same day you want to prepare this fried samp.
The garlic, tumeric, curry powder, pepper, egg, carrots and corned meat all add some nutritional benefits to this dish, making it an all in one meal. Some of these nutritional benefits include Vitamins, antioxidants and protein. So be rest assured your body will be thanking you, as well as your taste buds 😀 !!
